Surgery and MRSA (already contracted)
I showed concern in one of my post about having contracted MRSA and looking towards the future for having surgery.....Thought I would be turned down or something. Here's a really good answer I recieved:
Yes, you can have surgery. The doctors will want to make sure you have pre-op antibiotic coverage.
The best thing you can do to reduce the risk of a post-op infection is to wash with hibiclens (an anti-biotic soap) for a couple days before surgery. It reduces the bacteria on your skin and has been shown in british studies to reduce the risk of a post-op infection.
