Re: struggling

its good they have caught it. there hasnt really been any symptoms either so it wasnt something i was expecting @Esperanza67 i really hope i wont have to go to hospital though, thats my biggest concern atm. i still feel really quite anxious over it but i think ill feel better once i know if the treatments are working

Re: struggling

that sounds tough @scared01, especially since it's such a rare condition Smiley Sad. Have your doctors told you any information about your infection, like what it is, etc.?

Re: struggling

they know what it is @Esperanza67 but they dont know what caused it, and they didnt know how to treat it either. theres very little information on the internet either except that it can become very serious very quickly and that it is quite rare esp in the location i have it. it can also spread which has happened to me and has shown up as 2 different symptoms for me other than that there isnt much information on it lime how to prevent, treat, causes or anything

Re: struggling

@scared01 damn.... it's never very comforting knowing that you're the first person your gp has seen with the issue...

I'm glad that you know what it is though, it's always easier for doctors when they know what they're treating you for.

Would you like any help finding internet information on it? I'm unfortunately pretty familiar with that part of the internet, and if you want (and are comfortable with it of course), I might be able to find you a few extra links.

Re: struggling

hi @Tiny_leaf
i am lucky that one of the more senior drs at the practice has treated it before.In my gps words "i think you have created a new form of infection" so im glad there is some sort of knowledge of it with other gps. theres not much information on the internet but i am seeing a specilist for other reasons but they happen to specialise in this area of expertise so ill ask them about it and if they could provide some more information. if they dont know much about it im sure they could find out for me with good resources. i worry about going onto to many sites on the internet, to many viruses etc so i try to keep with the more safe ones.

@scared01

 

It sounds like you're in good hands with your GP.  And good on you for doing your own research.  Yes, best stick to safe sites!

 

Hope you're having a great day. Smiley Happy

Re: struggling

Wow @scared01! That sounds really scary. I'm sorry that you got some bad news. Smiley Sad Luckily, they've caught the infection early. It's great that one of the doctors has seen it before.

I really hope that the treatment works and you can get better soon. I hope you won't have to go to hospital, but if you do have to go, hopefully you will be able to receive better treatment there and the doctors will be competent and more experienced in treating that type of infection.

Re: struggling

thank you @WheresMySquishy
the symptoms have shown up in 2 other places so ive sent an email to my gp practice to ask whether i need to come back to see her or to continue the treatment i have for the next 3 days as thats how long ive got to go before i start the next treatment.
i dont think itll be a hospital job (fingers crossed though!!) but it might take abit to clear up or need repeat treatments as in like needing to take 2 courses of each treatment to cure it all.

Re: struggling
