I first became infected with Osteomyletis at the age of 9 and was operated on after a stupid delay in getting me to the hospital. That was in my left hip and thigh initially. I have a large open type scar from that which was kept open so it could drain. I suppose my bone was scraped but naturally I can't remember that. It was and is I believe in both bone and bone marrow.
A day or so after the operation my face became hugely swollen and red. My leg never did swell or show the classic signs of the big O and hasn't since even when my temperature has been 106 deg F or just over 41 deg C.
I have had numerous attacks since then which I will talk about later but at the moment although I am in pain all tests so far have not shown it. I believe it is deep in my bone marrow and this is perhaps why it is hard to pick up on even with scans.
I have some questions regarding the Anemia that I have. My iron content is 5 instead of the 150 to 350 I believe. That sounds very low to me but I guess it explains why I feel so very weak, my brain is muddled and I find it hard to breathe properly to mention a few.
My White blood cell count have bees low for ages (years) but at the moment is 11.
My Red blood cell count has gone up from 102 to 107 versus whatever is normal.
Can anyone give me an idea about what this all means especially the Anemia as I am so very weak.
Thanks all .. I am hoping Bruce How will be able to help me.
