Milledgeville Man Continues To Fight Flesh-Eating Bacteria

Paul Bales, the Milledgeville man fighting the flesh-eating bacteria could face more surgery. 13WMAZ talked to Mike Bales, Paul's son, on Tuesday morning about his father's condition.

On Wednesday, Mike Bales says doctors removed part of his dad's left leg, just below the knee. Bales says the doctors are focused on getting the bacteria out. 

 "The surgeon came in this past weekend to observe the leg, change the dressing," said Mike Bales in a phone interview. "They still see signs of redness and infection around the knee area, and possibly more amputation because there's even more infection."

Bales said his father is going in and out of consciousness.
