Healing Vibes urgently needed.

post #1 of 68
Thread Starter 
Before the crash, I had a short thread about my mom. She's 76. She's been in and out of the hospital with back pain since July. Several doctors told her it was arthritis and in-operable. In September, one of her doctors finally recommended a new surgeon. Mom went to see him, and he was willing to operate.

On October 28th, she had 4 vertebrae fused. She got thru that surgery and was making progress. Then on November 2, she lost feeling in her feet. They did a quick MRI and she underwent emergancy surgery on November 6th to stop some internal bleeding. She made great strides after that. She was home the day before Thanksgiving and walking with a walker.

A few days before Christmas, she complained that her back was in great pain. My dad talked her out of going back to the hospital till after the holidays. On December 30th, he finally gave in and brought her to the emergancy room. They did another MRI on her on the 4th and discovered an infection in the fusing.

She was moved to Isolation and a culture sent to the lab. They told us yesterday, she has a staph infection which has invaded her bone marrow. She is on IV antibiotics for the next 6 weeks. Last night, she developed an allergic reaction to the antibiotics.

She's been thru hell and back since July. I've seen this board do miracles. Please help.


ps..sorry for the lengthy oration.

Sandy, first off, my prayers and healing vibes have already started. Secondly, I myself have had a 3 level spinal fusion with screws and plates. I was originally going to suggest that they may be infected, but as I read I realized that they are in fact infected. Mine didn't get infected.

Focus on the fact that there are several antibiotics and her being in the hospital they can induce a medicine that will counter-act the original medicine. Plus are able to start on a new antibiotic. So don't worry too much, although it's hard, I'm sure.

Positive vibes bring positive outcomes. Repeat that and know it's true. I promise you. PM me if you need to talk, I'll be there for you. Just remember to focus on the facts not the worries. OK?

Wow... I will be thinking of you all... I hope also, that your dad will NOT wait next time, and take her pain a llittle more seriously next time. That isn't fair, same thing happened with my mom. Her sisters talked her into not having Chemo while the family was in town. Those two weeks without Chemo... her cancer progressed, and she went from a years of life, to maybe a year...

I hope all of you, and your family are doing good. It's a lot of stress on people when a loved one is sick.

Bone infections are the pits...takes a long time to get rid of them. You might ask your mom or the doc himself to put your mom on acidopulus (sp). It's the bacteria that is in yogurt, that will help replace the good bacteria that the antibiotics kill off. While antibiotics are the greatest thing invented, they don't know good from bad bacteria. Without the good bacteria she could develop what is called C-dif, an infection that causes severe diarrhea, plus all the antibiotics might cause a vaginal yeast infection. NOT something she wants to go through now. In the meantime encorage her to eat high quality yogurt. Good luck keep us posted. By the way I worked on an Ortho-Neuro unit for 20 yrs, and saw a lot of this...she will get better, just a long process.

Sending good healing vibes your Mom's way. I remember when you posted she was in the hospital. I guess since I didn't see you post anything differently, I assumed everything was going well.

Mom is going in for emergancy surgery today. The surgeon is operating on my brother-in-law now, he's going to scrub out from him and scrub in for mom.

She's running a high fever. They think the infection has spread.

I can't stop shaking. I'm leaving for the hospital now. Please start praying!
