Dental Surgery with Staph in my Ears? (photo)
I had a earache a few weeks ano and the dr done a culture on it and it came back as mrsa. I took the meds that she gave me for that and went back about a week and a half later for a reculture. I havet had a earache or anything since the culture showed mrsa. I called the office back today to check the results and they told me it was staph. My ears dont hurt at all now. I have a big dental surgery Thursday to have 20 teeth pulled and dentures put in. Can I still have my surgery?
