I had a 6 hour ankle surgery a month ago,I am a 22 year old. now part of my incision is still open and its a wound. The dr has already put me on bacterium dx and refantum. I also had a culture done of the wound and it came back with moderate mersa growth. SO he now wants to put a wound vac on the wound. I still live at home with my parents and siblings, and just started back at work today. Does anyone know about mersa? I know its airborn, so can my famly get it what? THanx for the help!!
