I'm so frustrated 4 months after cervical disectomy and lumbar laminectomy surgery still dealing with an Acinetobacter Baumanni infection that is now has infected my hip and knee. I live in a small town of 6500 and the closest city is 25 miles away with 25000 people. Neither one of the medical facilities know how to deal with this infection because it is so rare. The pain is excruciating especially in my sacium where the surgon used an instrument to widen the opening to access the herniated disc, my hip is swollen along with my thigh, knee and foot. Each time I go to the Urgent Care or my Dr. I don't think they realize how sick I am. So far the hospital gave me 2 days days outpatient IV antibiotics, and 2 oral antibiotic 10 day treatments. Unfortunately, 3 weeks later the infection is back worse than before. So urgent care gave me an antibiotic shot and a 10 oral antibiotic. Now I'm finished with the antiobiotic, still feel sick and have the pain in my lower spine, swelling in hip, thigh, knee and foot. Please someone help me I need to do next, because obviously the medical facilities here don't understand how to deal with this infection. Thank you for your assistance. I just want to get better before Christmas and have my life back.
