My cousin has been under treatment with antibiotics and has had no results. I was wondering if anyone has any information. All I know is that he gets a sore somewhere on his body and it turns into a tumor (don't know if benign or malignant. he doesn't want to talk about it). He has been told that on Monday he will get a super antibiotic shot and if that doesn't work, they are going to start amputating, 1st his foot, then elsewhere and his prognosis is death, although no time frame. He has the sores/tumors over most of his body at this point. He is about 53 years of age. Has worked for Chrysler most of his life. He had an infection and lost a finger about 2 years ago that was attributed to a chemical used at the plant but was of course denied by workers comp. That also is all I know about that. He has been normally healthy up until the last couple of years when he got that infection.
I would appreciate any information to start researching. I know there is nothing I can do but having knowledge is better than not.
