- Oct 27, 2008Sitting here with my husband I read your note and we both said "That sounds familiar".I'll be keeping your brother in my prayers but know that the diagnosis is the hard part. Now that they know what they are dealing with they can treat him and get him better. Thank God he was diagnosed.Love to youKimberly----- Original Message -----From: emynems33Sent: Monday, October 27, 2008 5:55 PMSubject: [lemierres_syndrome] Brother just diagnosed
I just found this group, and could really use some support right now.
My 19 year old brother has been hospitalized since Thursday, sick for a
week before that, and today finally diagnosed with Lemierres Syndrome.
He went to both urgent care and his doctors, and was just told that he
should take tylenol and will "feel better soon." Even after admittance
to the hospital, it took them over a day to get started on antibiotics
at all, thinking it was just a severe case of mono. Today the blood
cultures came back showing the bacteria. He was so incredibly healthy,
it's just hard to imagine how sick he is right now :(.
