A 46-year-old member asked:

What is the chance of suppressing mrsa complications that have already required the amputation of your leg?

Good: As long as you let clinicians know that you have had mrsa, the next time you have an infection they are more likely to make sure it is covered by the antibiotics being given.

Can be done: Depends on the degree of infection, see an infectious disease specialist.
