Got cellulitis again last Sunday and was admitted Tuesday. Been on IV antibiotics, got c diff so then more antibiotics. Difference of opinion between infectious disease doc and my ENT on long term antibiotics. ENT concerned for necrosis on right jaw so wants to be in prevention mode. Other Doc says no issues with cellulitis on that side yet so step back with wait and see approach. Of course I don't tolerate antibiotics well so don't want them. Leaving today with at home tx ten days. Will be happy to get back home.

    Well that is some good news............

    Wow, damned if you do and damned if you don't. Cellulitis is rough, my brother gets it bad, but nercous can be worse in the long run. I do understand your ENT. I take several meds for my COPD and the side effect is osteoporosis and I already had that, but i'm very fond of breathing so I have to take them.

    The good news is going back home. Dorothy was right, "There is no place like home".
