I have been told that I have infection in my artificial hip as well as my femur bone on the left side plus very weak bones
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have an artificial hip which I was told 2 years ago has an infection in it and that the infection has spread into the femur bone. Due to me having very weak bones they are not able to remove the hip to clean out part of the infection. I was on antibiotics for 2 years but they wasn't working any longer so the doctor discontinued those. The past few months I have been having a lot of problems such as a rather high temperature, severe pain and swelling in my left foot, ankle and lower leg. My hip haa been giving out on me a lot so I have been having to use my wheelchair the majority of the time. I'm 36 years old with 2 teenage children and I would really like to find someone to help me.
