The picc line was pulled out today. Now I have to wait for the next surgery. I am glad because I think the prolonged use of the IV antibiotics was starting to make me sick.

Picc line is having issues. It is a P.O.S. and I told them 5 weeks ago that it isn't right. Now the thing quit working on the last week of infusions! Nurse on her way now to try to fix it. Blah! insert expletives

I sure hope one day I click on this thread and MD says "that's it; it's as good as it's going to get and I'm happy with it".

I hope that means you kept the leg, can work with it the way it is, not in pain, and no longer need continual treatments.

That's my hope for you MD.

Sorry guys...I thought I updated this. I feel bad. I have to wait until the middle of next month to go see him again. He is waiting for some sort of infection markers to come down and for the ORs to open back up.

Good news is that the incision has nearly completely healed. Almost all fluid retention in both legs and swelling is gone. It seems to stay gone as well. Too bad I will be sliced open again. I hope it goes back to this if I manage to keep my leg.

No, thank you guys for all the prayers and support since that night. I really do appreciate it. I will never physically be able to do a lot of things due to this, but I will walk again, even if straight legged!

I have to go get labs done tomorrow at my primary care doctor's office. I will then have my virtual appointment on Wednesday and hope he prescribes something for the pain since my pain management doctor has dropped the ball. I have no knee and in agony. But at least the incision has healed

MD, thanks for the update. Those pics look really encouraging. No noticeable ulcerations or 'weeping' areas. Hope/pray the next phase continues this positive progress.

I hear the operating rooms may be opening up soon! If my infection markers go down and all looks well, I may have surgery again soon!

I have nothing in place of my knee. It was taken out in February, and now they are hoping the infection is gone so they can fuse it. If it doesn't clear out, they will amputate the leg.

I have a joke for this....but it just doesn’t feel appropriate anymore .

Get the **** better soon my friend!


Don’t take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.
