I had knee surgery about a month ago and about 80% of the medical personal believe that's where it came from. Woke up one morning with a dull back ache and thought it was from the physical therapy I was doing for my knee. As the day progressed it got so bad my sister and husband had to take me to the emergency room that night (just barely able to get in the car). When I got to the ER they pumped me up with morphine
and chalked it up to just favoring one leg over the other while sending me home with oxycodone. The next day while on oxy the pain got even worse and that night I was taken back by ambulance two parameds and cops to get me on the stretcher. When I got back to the ER they said I had a 101 fever. Long story short and after the second mri with contrast I was diagnosed with it. The doctor had a suspicion since I had no sciatica pain and was started on antibiotics. Now that I'm home I have to take an infusion of an antibiotic everyday for weeks along with multiple pain killers. The pain is brutal
