Need Help

Postby WayneSC » Sat Dec 27, 2008 4:30 am

My wife is in the hospital in a small city with meningitis apparently contracted through her MS baclofen pump. The pump was surgically removed and she is being treated for bacterial meningitis, although they can't grow a culture. Their baclofen withdrawal plan seems very funny to me. She has had a small brain infarct and her kidneys are failing from the antibiotic. She is cycling through different awareness presentations every day.

Question: does anyone know of a hospital in So Cal that has had significant experience with this combination of MS, meninigitis (that may be mis-diagnosed) and baclofen withdrwal management? UCLA, Loma Linda?
