I just received the results of my pre-screening testing! It shows that I have a positive Staph Areus in my nostril... Not sure what to think now...Could this mean my past is coming back..I had a very bad staph infection and meningitis years ago with my past back operations..The MRI shows that I still have some kind of fluid still in my L4-L5 there not sure spinal abscess,or another spinal fluid leak?


August 5th 360 fusion



  • dont wait to tell the surgeon....any kind of infection will necessitate stopping the surgery. i didnt tell my surgeon about a pimple near where they were going to cut. they had me in the room for the surgery and when surgeon saw pimple he sent me home. they dont take chances....
  • your surgery would be canceled until you could provide a clear swab ..
