ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Fell april 4th 2017 and tore clavicle ligaments.went to orthopedic doctor. Was told too old to really do anything as far a surgery went. So i now have a large bone jetting from my left shoulder. 70 at the time i am now 73. Around april 14th i had a loop recorder implanted in my chest for syncopy because of the fall moving forward about a week later i started getting fevers. Every 5 to 7 days. Went to doctor's office ran labs and all were normal. Fast forwarding went to several doctors. Family, neurologist, rheumatologist, lung specialist ( lung cancer 2007 ), cardiologist and infectious disease. Infectious disease dr told me to remove loop recorder. In november of 2017 had it removed. Fevers still come and go..losing weight went from 234 down to 174. Had pet scans, ct scans. Lots of blood work ups. Stool samples checking for parasites. fungal tests and sure i am missing more to report. But everything has come back completely normal. Have been to oncogists did bone marrow biopsy. Normal! Still running fevers. Family doctor and oncologist suggests cleveland clinic
