cellulitis, look it up to learn more sice i has to type left handed
bacteria got into my hand
dunno if it was a coral sting from my aquarium that let it in or what because somtimes there is no obvious entry wound, you can get this from marine water, pond water and animal bites...and a swollen spot spurred up the day after i moved the rocks in my reef aquarium and 24 hours later had gotten a lot worse
my hand is in a splint till monday cause movement makes it worse.
the doc says the swelling should be good in a week but the meds for 3 months are to be sure it does not come back.
i had to go to the ER at midnight last night for an antibiotic IV and the splint because the swelling got so bad, i am now on some super strong antibiotic pills
the doc there said had i waited to come in i could have gotten sepsis and the infection could have gone to lymph nodes, there is still a slim chance my hand may need surgery but he says i got in befor my fingers turned into susages so i should be fine
the worst part is my med coverage ends tommorrow...
and i cannot work and i had a huge rush job i now have to cancel and i just lost $1000 cause i cannot work with my gimped hand as i am right handed .... hell i can hardly do anything
