Received a call from the University of Iowa Infectious Disease doctors and now they feel I have mycobacterium fortuitum and not nocardia. I am getting confused as I have now had 5 misdiagnosed conditions. I've been looking on the Internet for more information and there is some general information but very little; seems it is somewhat rare and is locked away in medical journals that I can not gain access to.
Will keep you updated as I am .. and keep moving forward. Seems this exposure comes from the original surgery or the aspiration and/or skin following the surgery. Personally, I have had a problem in this area of my tummy since the initial surgery.
