I had an ass and toe bacteria one time. Got it from sticking my foot up some idiots ass. Man, it hurt for weeks. I did have to have surgery to remove my foot from his ass, but it was at Park West. Sorry!

So ???
it's not something in our daily lives.

and coming here to actually create a thread about it was more than a little bizarre to say the least.

so pardon us for tearing into this like a stray dog on a pork chop.
remember, this IS topix.
not a forum to be taken seriously at all.

careful now, agree'n with me on this forum, could be hazardous to your health !!!

you'll be a target for the dreaded bacterial infection known as "asintobeatrollitis"

it's a slow painful affliction that leaves you unable to come up with any original thought of your own.
therefore destined to a life(if you can call it that)of going after those that do.

it's an epidemic around here.

Oh, I see now. Things aren't taken seriously on topix. I didn't realize that. I'll remember that from now on. Thanks for the information.

LOL Not on topix evidently. I like to have as much fun as the next person, and have very thick skin. I just thought possibly, maybe, someone else had acquired this infection in a hospital and would discuss it with me.

I'll go out on a limb here and say you are better off discussing this with a doctor. But I can see how it would be a close call between info on a discussion forum and a doctor.

Hospitals won't discuss it unless you're the one that has it and then they're reluctant to discuss it with you. My doctor says having surgery these days is like a game of russian roulette as far as the bacterial infections you can acquire. I've asked 8 nurses about it, and they've never heard of it. It seems the Government wants this deadly infection swept under the rug. It doesn't have to be reported to the State here. Some states have to report it. There aren't available stats on it. You should read up on it. It was brought back from Iraq.

No, I don't have it. A friend of mine had it and passed away March 5.

OK, this is my last post on this because it doesn't deserve a thread. You have more of this gram-negative bacteria in you home on the sponge lying in your sink. The bacteria also may facilitate aggregation of other bacteria. This germ is also everywhere and does not effect most people in good health, but does create problems for the severely ill or sometimes wounded. I am indeed sorry for the loss of your friend, but it isn't because ANY hospital is necessarily dirtier than normal. Also, I did not say to discuss it with the hospital. Of course they aren't going to discuss it with you or anyone else. The world is so lawsuit happy, they would never discuss this, especially with a non-family member. Although I am VERY dissatisfied with our government right now, I promise, the government isn't plotting to wipe us out through surgical infections. They're going to starve us to death slowly after taking all our money. It isn't a silent conspiracy, they're passing legislation right in front of us.

BTW, your Dr is an idiot if he really said that. I'd change docs.

LOL You need to read a little more about it. There have been people who are not severely ill affected by the infection. You also need to read about what "some" hospitals do to disinfect operating rooms, ICUs, and other rooms in the hospitals, and what "some" other hospitals don't do. John Hopkins has stringent rules of how the rooms are cleaned when someone with this type of infection leaves, and what they do when they have several patients with this infection in their hospital. I never said it was a silent consiparacy either. You read that into it yourself. I love my country. I think there need to be more rules made about reporting these types of infections. Let me know when that legislation gets passied, ok?
