Osteomyelitis Return After Only Two Days?!?!?

My Infectious Disease doctor, Dr. Richard Lester, just on June 20th had released me from the program as my leg was going a wonderful job and looking great. That Monday I was taken off all oral and antibiotics via PICC Line for the first time since April 2nd. I thought to myself, I was finally going to be getting some life back. As I was no longer going to need to go to Wound Care everyday, but rather just twice a week Thursday following that Monday was my first appointment. Sadly, the nurse on duty was already concerned about the infection returning due to the temperature in my leg and the redness moving up my left leg. So I got a hold on the pharmacist at Vancouver General Hospital that works along side my doctor and told her what was going on and she recommended that I see Dr. Lester as soon as possible. I am hoping for the best as always but prepared for the worst.

Not a fun time.

Nothing more, nothing less.
