Gram Positive Cockeye(?)

Mon Jun 14, 2010 5:56 am
This is a great community. Consider joining.
I'm just wondering if after an ileostomy or any other procedure anyone else got a bug called gram positive cockeye growing in there blood? I had my stoma 3 weeks then suddenly couldn't move. I was immobilised for 2 weeks before I went back to hospital where they said I have a bug in my blood. Luckily it's being killed by antibiotics so I get out in a week. I'm just curious if this is a bit common, or just my bad luck?
These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

Nope didn't get that ... but sure felt cockeyed after my surgery - sorry, couldn't resist.

Seriously, sounds very bad ... all the best to you for a speedy recovery. There are so many bugs and germs in hospitals, the sooner you are out the better IMHO.

I was in isolation with C-Diff - another common hospital germ (not just hosp, but it loves to hang out there).
