Cuase of Infection?

So today my doc was happy to see the signs of infection faded slightly and he told me that the culture they took Tuesday came back and it is confirmed that it is a staph infection. I mentioned the coincidence that earlier this year I went to the Emergency room with food poisoning with turned out to be staph related as well. My doctor was very intrigued by this and will get the records from my emergency room visit and see if he can make a connection. I think he is interested since a staph infection four weeks post surgery is so uncommon. We will see what turns up.
