- Can mrsa cause chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction?
I had a small bowel obstruction caused by adhesions from an appendectomy carried out 20yrs previously and had grumbling pain ever since but been labelled a malingerer by my family GP until one day at work when I started with terrible tummy ache and sickness like I'd never known, fetching up bile with force. I hated going to hospital after yrs of being called a moaner but after a day of rolling round in pain, temperature of 103 an dehydration, my Mammy insisted we go and I was seen straight away - to my shock I was in theatre within 3hrs with a serious obstruction.
I never really recovered... The obstruction returned after 2 days and a portion of necrotic bowel was removed, then further fever and cellulitis then MRSA and deaths door.... Isolation in high dependency (intensive care) wound break down, ventilated and all related issues that come with that - chest infection, pneumonia, bed sores. Total time in hospital 8 months. Negative pressure dressing on laparotomy wound, colostomy, picc, 4 rounds of vancomycin, minor flirt with heart failure (just water related) an eventually everything healed. Had a large incisional hernia to repair and some corrective work to the horrific scarring but then the neuropathy started plus problems eating, spewing up after any solid food, more than a few forks, diarrhoea and sickness or constipation nausea and pain driving me mad, tried all manner of drugs, nerve blocks, physio, floating tank, acupuncture, opiates, non opiates, spinal cord stimulation, an now a consultant just had a 'eureka' moment and said were you treated with vancomycin when you had MRSA? If so I'm pretty sure you have chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction and is 90% sure but wants to take a muscle biopsy to be certain. I've had so much surgery and bad news in the last 10yrs I'm terrified of germs, hospital acquired bugs and anaesthetics, is there any other way? Or can I have this test done awake - conscious sedation? I had it before during spinal cord surgery so I know what's involved and it's better than GA as I know what's going on, who is doing what to me etc...
Does anyone with a medical background know about this ailment/disease? Does it sound feasible that MRSA or it's treatment could have caused this? I was surgically debrided up to every other day when the vac pac/negative pressure machine and dressings were changed and the doctors told me I lost a great deal of tissue and had a lot of nerve damage due to the infection.
Any patient perspectives on this illness would also be very much valued in helping me make a decision, moving forward. If all this is going to accomplish is to attach a label to the pain but not actually change anything, after fighting it for 10yrs now, avoiding hospital as much as I can, I really can't see the point of exploratory surgerys and biopsys now when it is known that I have this propensity towards adhesions and a new wound means a potentially new adhesion growth site.
If it helps, the appendectomy happened when I was 10yrs old, the MRSA when I was 30 and I am now 40.

From this study (1 month ago):
was in ICU on ventalator for 14 dyas , moved to regular room for 7 days not getting any better mentally
From this study (3 months ago):
my liver function test is abnormal. my chemotherapy was cancelled. Pending liver function test next week results.
From this study (3 months ago):
I had a hip reconstruction due to toxic levels of cobalt & titanium ball and rod. Five petri dishes of tissue were taken at surgical site and a bacteria was found in one petri dish which could have actually been in the tissue or could have been dropped on the petri dish by anyone handling the samples. To be on the safe side, I was given Vancomyacin intravenously for 3 wks and then put on 900 mgs. of Clindamycin for 30 days. I now have developed Gout in the same surgical side, in the big toe and foot. Could the Gout be caused by all of the antibiotics?
