This is not my idea of fun. I went to urgent care this morning because I have another cyst under my arm (like the one I had before that was mrsa). I had gone to my PCP on Thursday and she drained it and I thought all was well. It was a little bigger than a peanut when she lanced it. It didn't drain at all on Thursday or Friday, and it got bigger. Friday afternoon. I called the doc to find out what to do. The nurse basically said I hadn't been on the antibiotics long enough yet and to wait it out. When I woke up in the middle of the night, it was about the size of a ping-pong ball. By this morning, there were two distinct lumps. One about the size of a walnut and one a little smaller than a tennis ball across. Did I mention I didn't sleep from the pain? So this morning a friend went with me to urgent care. The doctor took one look at it and sent me to the ER. I was poked excessively- blood drawn, at least three doctors feeling it, an ultra sound (inconclusive) and then a CAT scan. After the ultra sound, the doctor told me there was no fluid, just hard tissue and air. Because of the air and lack of pus, he was worried it could be necrotizing fasciitis and said I needed IV antibiotics and I'd probably be here at least 48 hours. I thought they'd admit me anyway, but not for that long. So now I'm waiting. They won't even know for sure what it is until the blood cultures come back, which he said would probably be 48 hours. They've also not let me eat at all and it's 3:35. I've had a slim fast shake and a banana cookie today and that's it. I finally just sent my friend for food bc the nurses didn't seem concerned with getting the doctor's all clear. Of course, just now as I'm typing this someone brought me a tray of food. I sent it away. I'm thoroughly annoyed. First they don't tell me if I can eat, then they bring me a tray when I've said three times already that I was sending someone for food. Oh, and after the CAT scan, they didn't hook my IV back up for at least half an hour. Someone just forgot, and then they ignored my call the first time. If they do that with my next pain pill, there's gonna be trouble.
