Male with excessive drainage for last 3 yrs of non-bacterial fluid under right armpit.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Have severe draining of right armpit of non-bacterial fluid for last 3 yrs. I have had numerous surgeries with 7 in 2018 and two so far in 2019 with no success. I have seen an infection disease doctor, general surgeon, and dermatologist and all had no answer for me. I am still draining daily with no end in site. Looking for help. I also am in a wheel chair and dealing with disease called "Inclusion Body Myositis" (IBM). It is severe atrophy of the distal and proximal muscles. Now I have to also deal with this arm problem. In 2014 I had a reverse shoulder replacement. This could be the cause of my arm problem. I hope someone out there may have an answer and solution for me.
