A simple scratch on mom's leg gets infected during a fishing trip, and after 55 surgeries, she's begging doctors to amputate.

Michelle Milton was looking forward to a mini adventure with her brother on a fishing trip. The adventurer and mother of two never expected a simple wound to take over her entire life. While enjoying the great outdoors, she slipped on some rocks, and a fishing line got stuck in her leg.

The Scratch On the Leg is Infected

The scratch quickly spiraled into a nightmarish infection, catapulting Michelle from the tranquil outdoors to the cold confines of the hospital. The intensity of her suffering is palpable as she described the agony of the ‘simple scratch' that, within days, unleashed a relentless infection.

Rushed to the hospital as her leg swelled, Michelle’s misadventure took a dark turn when doctors discovered the wound’s resistance to antibiotics. This set the stage for an excruciating series of 55 surgeries.

Each Day is Marked By Pain

With a visceral plea, Michelle expressed profound desperation. “I never thought a fishing line could cause so much damage. I just want my leg off," she said. Each day is marked by unrelenting pain, rendering walking and sitting excruciatingly difficult.

The relentless cutting away at her leg leaves her fearing there will be nothing left of her. But it's not the pain that haunts her. Michelle wants to return to being a mother, even if that means chopping off her leg.

She Hasn’t Felt Like a Mom in Years

With poignant despair, she acknowledged, “I haven’t been [a mom] in years. My mom’s been doing everything for my kids.” Despite their intensity, the treatments have failed to halt the relentless march of the infection.

In a gut-wrenching reflection, Michelle lamented, “I can’t believe a simple scratch has left me like this.” Her story serves as a poignant reminder of a misadventure’s profound impact on one’s life, leaving behind a trail of anguish, desperation, and an intense plea for respite.
