    That's some scary stuff. Glad to hear that you pulled through all of it AND found the only way to make it look like a tall guy has a big calf.

    Angry looking infection, sore to put weight on the leg I'm sure.

    Chris -
    Skin infection from an open wound on my shin from where the DL bar hits.
    No DL from now on without knee high socks....

    Went from a good squat session at 7pm Monday night to the emergency room at 6am Tuesday morning, absolutely impossible to put weight on the foot without excruciating pain. Not sure how many bags if saline and Vancomycin they put into me, but I left
    the hospital 9 lbs heavier than I arrived, a whole bunch of that in my leg.

    Has anyone else in your gym had skin infections after deadlifting?

    The reason I ask is when I was in my residency, my resident mate was doing her research project on the spread of infectious organisms like MRSA from humans to animals or animals to humans. One of the topics we talked about often was powerlifting (obviously, because of me) and the risk of spread of infection during meets and in the gym. Its something that has had my interest for the last several years.
    Finally ELITE @ SHW..

    Single ply: 931 squat, 760 bench, 530 deadlift and 2180 total
    Multi ply: 960 squat, 770 bench, 550 deadlift and 2250 total.

    The next stop: PRO total.

    Interesting you asked that.
    BTW, they tested specifically for MRSA, it wasn't that.
    One of the other lifters we have, who does bench only, came down with a very
    similar leg infection in his lower leg about 2 weeks after mine. But, he doesn't
    deadlift with us, so we are not sure if there is any relation at all. We do now pay
    much more attention to the gym cleanliness (wipe stuff down with bleach solution,
    etc.) than we did before.

    For sure watch out for that stuff. I got it on my forearm two years ago from one of my gyms.
