I think I should say this again<====
I wrote this in my other thread but thought that it was important enough -at least to me- to give it its own thread.
I went to the doctor today on the advice of some guys here, and he was very concerned with my infected leg. He said he was glad that I came when I did because it would only get worse until I'd have to go to the hospital.
Now, while I was at the doc's office I noticed on the insurance card that it expires 10/6/03. That is TODAY. If I had waited even one more day then I would be truely fucked. The infection would have worsened, I would have received no antibiotics, and basically would be in a world of shit.
So I want to thank those who helped out. And yes I wasnt to keen on going to the doctor, nobody is when it comes to this shit. But the reality of the situation is that the trip was essential. So to all the people who think they may need to go but are worried that they'll get in trouble. I say this: If you are mature enough to use this shit, then you had better be mature enough to ask for help and risk punishment if the time comes. We all know the risks, and I presumed nothing would happen to me. But that just goes to show whats possible and probable are two different things. Dont risk anything in this game, and listen to the bros here. they know their shit
special thanks to:

EDIT: oh yeah, he suggested that I stop the cycle because this type of shit happens. I got a lecture. Then I got antibiotics. Worth it in the long run.

What was the infection from? A bad injection?

The doc I saw -at least I belive so- didnt really give a shit about me when I told him I was on test. He just wrote a script and sent me to pay. I was just happy to get some antibiotics. We shall see how this plays out. The cycle is still on. I am now repping at my old max with ease. 3 weeks in...

Glad you went to get this thing taken care of properly bro.
There are always a boat load of level headed members here that will tell you what you NEED to hear. (Although it may not always be what you WANT to hear)

hey sytm. I hope this these problems havent rendered any of your gains.

Good to follow up this post Symatech..
Everyone who reads this needs to understand that the chances of an infection are always present, even if all of the standard precautions are followed closely..What is even more important is to pay close attention to your body and to seek treatment if something such as this issue takes place..If Symatech had dismissed this problem as a minor issue, he could have helped this problem turn into a very serious infection..Be smart and listen to your body..It is your very best source of information..
And last but not least..If you are prescribed antibiotics by your Physican..
BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE REGIMINE EXACTLY AND FINISH THE ENTIRE PRESCRIPTION UNTIL IT IS GONE..AND ON TIME...
This is a serious game we play and in order to maximize our gains while maintaining a healthy body, we have to be smart and cautious..
