On May 11th, 2017, I went for my follow-up appointment with the Infectious Disease Department with Dr. R. Lester at Vancouver General Hospital. He had become my primary doctor after Dr. J. Hajek headed to Africa to treat a bound of individuals with Ebola. Dr. Hajek was the first ID (Infectious Disease) doctor to diagnosis me with OM (Osteomylitis).
As there had been no follow up since my inital appointment on April 2nd, 2017, and my PICC Line via antibiotic treatment was running out, Dr. Lester took over my file and treatment plan which was a relief. As at this point my calve was still extremely swollen, red, and the wound itself was draining still, not a good sign. This time around I was also experiencing pain
It turns out that the infection was getting worse, so another six weeks of PICC Line via antibiotics were indeed ordered along with an oral antibiotic. My GP prescribed me some Tylenol 3 to help with the pain, which keeps it under control.
My next appointment with Dr. Lester is June 15th, at 10am. Then will see what the next step it.
