Letter About My Osteomyelitis to Dr. C. Leung

June 3rd, 2017

Re: Osteomyelitis

Dear Dr. C. Leung,

All this started the end of March, with the official diagnosis April 2nd, 2017, from Dr. Jan Hayjek. I expressed my concerns at the time about losing my leg, and he laughed it off as if it were a silly question, or something that was indeed not going to happen.

Here we are, going to enter my third IV treatment via PICC Line along with oral antibiotics as there has been little important. My leg is getting large, I am limited on what I can do in terms of physical activity due to my leg bone infection or the Osteomyelitis and actual leg wound, without causing more damage.

I do fear that this leg will not make it as I see professionals struggle to find the proper treatment to cure the infection raging in my leg. I know weighing 375lbs is not helping my situation, but also when I stress I binge eat. They go hand in hand.

I know I can only take it one day at a time, but it just seems so overwhelming right now.
