  • You can waste a lot of time stressing about things that will never happen.
    I do know though, that once you are stressing about something, there is not an off switch!
    I think Keith has given some good advice, and keeping a list of your meds and who prescribed them is a brilliant idea.

    I think the infectious disease doctor referral is normal, and Dan / pccstudent, who is also suffering with this infection had a similar referral.

    Thank you for the lovely things you said about me Donna :-) That is a real encouragement, which has really picked me up after a difficult meeting at work on my return yesterday. :-)

    I feel that I am pretty good as far as my recovery from the ACDF has gone. :-)

    Now I hope that you will be able to rest, relax and let the antibiotics and your body do the healing. This is going to delay your recovery, but in the long run, hopefully you will get there.
    God bless and heal you! xxx :-)

    Hi My name is Marla and I have the same exact thing you have:discitis/osteomyletis. Our MRI's are almost identical and I have an infectious disease dr too and had a lumbar biopsy-waiting 4-6 wks for the results. I also had lots of blood cultures, Sed Rate, CBC with Differental, and the lymphocytes are increased. Keep your spirit up and be encouraged this too shall pass. I am a new member and would love to hear your progress, Keep in touch. Hugs, Marla
