[IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V4 #477

I went to Vegas and took a bath in a hotel room (never again...unless i 
bleach it first) and came home with 2 pea sized boils which i promptly had a 
doctor examine...i suggested that they should be drained and he declined my 
offering of my body as a cutting board...a week later i had 2 golf ball size 
abcesses that required general surgery to drain and intermuscular 
antibiotics...sad thing is that it shouldn't have been that way...when i went 
back to the general practitioner she just wanted to give me more oral 
antibiotics...thank goodness my diabetes nurse practitioner acknowledged the 
seriousness of the problem put me on intermuscular antibiotics and sent me to 
a surgeon...
