The photo of your finger looks just like my toe. They will be operating again this Thursday due to bone infection.

 

I've been on Zyvox for the last three weeks. I've gotten vaginitis, thrush and diarrhea for most of that time. Yesterday, I developed a UTI infection and will be going to the doctors for treatment of that and pre op work up today for next Thursday's operation. I stopped taking the Zyvox as I anticipate the general practitioner will be prescribing something else for the UTI.

 

For a while, I would just st and cry.....now I sit, take a deep breath and laugh a little....it somewhat eases the frustration.

 

Believe me, I'm feeling a good portion of what you've been through. blessings and I hope all is well with you now.
