I'm looking for help.
I recently (3 weeks ago) had a minor surgery to remove cysts from my scrotum at a Military Treatment Facility.
I have had several complications:
1. Ruptured sutures (twice).
2. Swollen inguinal lymph nodes that abscessed and burst.
3. A laundry list of bacterial infections.
4. A new cyst that came up over night and abscessed.
I received a copy of my lab report on Friday and was shocked to see that I had three types of bacterial infections, the worst being Acinetobacter Baumannii. I have been referred to Infectious Disease for further treatment.
My concern is this:
The doctors that presented me with the lab report downplayed the situation and actually joked about it. One asked if I had deployed, the other said, "you probably got that here". I have not deployed since 2000.
Everything I have read about Acinetobacter Baumannii scares the ***l out of me. It's not just the infection that I'm concerned about; I have not exactly received great care from MTFs. I'm afraid they're not going to fully help me. Thankfully, I just finished a regiment of Augmentin. I received antibiotics only after my lymph node burst.
Side note: 4 months ago I had a cyst in the same area biopsied at dermatology at the same MTF. I had been bounced back and forth between Dermatology and Urology at least 4 times up to this point (I had been complaining about pain and swelling for 4 months). 1 week after the biopsy was done I had the cyst removed in an emergency procedure at Urology. I was told that I was about to become septic. I had a bad staph infection and the doctor said I probably got it at the derm clinic when the biopsy was done.
Has anyone else had any experience with Acinetobacter Baumannii?
Should I contact a non-military facility?
