ur right, all the tests are negative but yes it eats the endplates. i worked upto the vanko, after a year of paiun.. i still have pain and cant walk comfy after 6 weeks iv vanko, but seem to be getting better..
did u have 12 weeks IV vanko?? man, thats must have been bad.. i have stopped all antibiotics.. since the doc says he can see nwe bone formation.. does this mean that the infection is killed?
i still have the deep disk space pain, does this mean the infection is still there??
last year i had the infection, it seemed to get better with 1 week fortum iv, but it never really went away.. kept paining deep inside.. which is how it is right now as well.. they gave me vanko only after seeing the endplate changes..
i spoke to jenn,..
this infection, will it ever ever go away??? i cant live until it does..
for 2 months my idea of happiness was getting up in the morning and not having to scream in pain..
at least now i am in lesser pain, is this a good sign or is this just "adjustment" of the body with the infection still there?? my doc sees me walking and concludes that i am well on my way to recovery but i am afraid that like last year, the problem will again be only half solved only to resurface yet again with a more severe attack as it did this time..
fusion seems risky..
coz im not debilitated.. just my disk space pains..
shall keep u updated. am walking around 10 mins a day now, ALMOST normally but got lotta pain deeeep inside.
