I have just had an operation my 6th due to chronic osteomyelitis and there is an hole you could get your fist in. It all started 3 yrs ago i had a fixator frame on and one of the pinsites became infected. I have not had a day go by without pain and i'm so fed up with all the pain i have asked my consultant if he will amputate. But he says that he has some more tests to do and he is realy concerned about the pain i'm having. He will not admit it but i can tell by talking to him they is'nt much hope. I think he feels he as let me down but i just think i was unlucky and it could have happened to anyone. And i was wondering if they is anyone out there who as had amputation.

I had a lump form on my index finger just over a year ago......
after several visits to the gp and 3 months on antibiotics the lump did not go away, so ended up takin myself to a&e, after more antibiotics it was apparent the problem had gone to far. i ended up having part of my finger removed as osteomyelitis had spread to my bone....
I hope everything works out ok for you.
Wanted to find out how you are?
On Friday my partner has just had his right leg amputated below the knee.He has been in pain for 23 years with osteomyelitis and decided to have the amputation to improve his quality of life.He's in pain now , the morphine helps a bit.
Got out of hospital yesterday after having my below left leg amputated and even though its going to be hard i'm sure that i am going to be better off.
My partner has osteomyelitis in his lower femur bone and is considering amputation as the pain and discomfort it too much. Is there any chance he could email you? We are in Australia and there's no one going through this here! We've been told it's been over 20 years since they have seen anything like this!
