Hospitalized

I was hospitalized for 5 days!! The infection on my left foot was getting worse each day...and the (oral) antibiotics I was taking weren't working.

My left foot is where I had the tumor (cancer) that was removed and now has a skin graft, that's why this was so scary! My primary doctor thought the cancer had returned, and the orthopoedic oncologist was worried that the infection had gone deep into the bone, thereby needing an amputation! Thank God, cancer was not found, nor was there any infection in the bone.

My left foot is now alot better, but the infection has spread to my right foot!! It's not as swollen, or red/purple as the left foor had been, but there is definitely an infection!! So, I just called my primay doctor requesting a referral to see a specialist that deals with infection.

Yes, I'm still on antibiotics...UGH! Unfortunately, I am having a few side effects from the antibiotics.

No, I was not able to go to the Indian wedding...

Estuve internada en el hospital por 5 dias! Si, cinco dias!! Mi pie izquierdo estaba infectado...aun no sabemos que tipo de infeccion era/es. Los antibioticos que me estaba tomando no me estaban ayudando...no habia mejoria con mi pie.

El pie izquierdo era donde tenia el tumor canceroso y ese "pozo" (donde estaba el tumor) esta cubierto con un injerto...por esta razon fue de que me internaron. Mi medico general pensaba que el cancer me habia regresado, el oncologo en ortopedia pensaba que la infeccion habia llegado al hueso y tuviera que intervenir quirujicamente (amputacion). Gracias a Dios, nada de esto.

Mi pie izq. esta mucho mejor, pero ahora el pie derecho esta infectado!! No esta igual de infectado como lo estuvo el izq. pero si hay infeccion! Recien le llame a mi doctor pidiendole que me mandara con un especialista en infecciones. Vamos a ver que pasa...

Sigo con los antibioticos, pero tengo algunas molestias debido a esto...UGH!

Lamentablemente, no pude asistir a la boda India.
