I am being treated for MRSA received in the hospital after surgery. I had to have another surgery 3 1/2 weeks after my surgery to clean the area out. Now my husband has to give me an infusion of this every day for at least 6 weeks. CDC is involved and sends out one week's supply for us and they are the ones that will need to clear me. This rates down pretty low in my estimate!

My doctor recommends me taking this shot for a common cold. Is this correct, I have been told it is not for that?

Comment:
Was treated for a barthilon abscess. I had this shot, which was extremely painful. When I was done with the visit I went to the pharmacy to fill meds and became very ill. Between this and the other antibiotics, I'm still having nausea and vomiting and it's been 6 days now.
