I need a Doctor and not a Lawyer~ I recently had hip surgery

Customer Question
and came through that well...
I need a Doctor and not a Lawyer~ I recently had hip surgery and came through that well enough~I also had a leg ulcer on the other leg which was seen by Specialists and prescribed Protopic for it and it was healing nicely~ I spent nearly a month in the hospital since I live alone and had therapy~ the ulcer had been there almost two years and my GP could never figure it out and it was nice I finally had Specialists look at it~ when I got home nurses came in to change the dressing and I also did as well~one scrapped the wound and it became infected and I blamed myself maybe for not being real careful~the Specialist seemed to feel it was not me but the scraping~ it was so painful and he put me on a high dose of anto biotics called act- ciprofloxacin 250 mg and had to take 3 tablets twice a day as the pharmacy did not carry them in such a high strength~ after two weeks he saw me again and was pleased with the results and told me to continue with the cream only and since then my stomach seems upset~he prescribed Tyenoyl 3 for pain and that did not work and bound me up~I have been off the anti biotic since Tuesday~ 4 days ago~ and still do not feel well nor feel like eating~I am so discouraged as I came home from the hospital so well and now not so after this~the pain still comes on the ulcer but a specialist on here said it is new tissue forming and stretching the skin~regular tyenoyl is better than the 3~why would I feel sort of nausea and it is upsetting when I did feel so well after surgery!!

You treated me before and felt my wound was cancer~ Three Specialists have looked at it and say it is not~I did not get back to you as I fell and broke my hip~it was good in one way as my ulcer got the best of care~it is healing finally on Protopic
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am wondering if that strong anti biotic made me sick at my stomach~I stopped it Tuesday
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 1 year ago

Definitely could have

So it wasn't cancer?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I had a Wound Specialist and an Infectious Disease Specialist and a Plastic Surgeon all dealing with it and they said it definitely was not cancer~ my main question now is why I feel so awful when I felt wonderful when I left the hospital~ then the set back with an infection getting into the ulcer~they have a name for it~it starts wit gan~ but not ganerine~I have to trust what they tell me and it was healing really well until this nurse scrapped it~ which according to the Specialist she should not have~ anyway he gave me an awful powerful anti biotic and when I saw him this week after two weeks on it he was pleased and said to continue with that ointment and it should be healed in 6 weeks~ maybe to you it does not sound right~the pain was terrible and tyenoyl 3 did not help and just bound me up~ he said it does not always work on everyone~could it be the anti biotic or my being bound up making me feel unwell~if it is how long does it take to leave your system
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 1 year ago

have you had blood work recently?

these infections and drugs can cause anemia

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I was so discouraged in there a month as they took blood everyday and I have rolling veins and I even had two different brain scans and tons of tests and they could not find one thing wrong~ even my blood pressure was better than the young nurses~as my Doctor said I had a good check uo~ she is on maternity leave now and her partner left the clinic~ she will return in six weeks however which should be soon ~ so I am left with no Doctor right now
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 1 year ago

These meds and this infection could certainly be the cause

I'm so sorry you are feeling so bad :(

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I felt really good up until I took that anti biotic for infection~ my wound is now looking good again~ they had me on this ointment the whole month I was in the hospital and I was fine and even when I came home~I also thank goodness had no pain today ~ a skin specialist~ Dr Stan on here agreed with the ointment and said I definitely did not have cancer~he also agreed with the anti biotic but at that time I did not feel ill~ I am asking you if it would have caused this feeling and also the constipation
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
He told me to take a probiotic for a while which I am doing
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
You say the infection could cause it~the infection has cleared up I told you and the Specialist was pleased on how it healed
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Maybe I am not making myself clear~ I am asking if that particular anti biotic and the tyenol 3 problem could be the cause of an upset stomach~Maybe another Doctor would know??? Is there one on Duty
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I ask if it is the anti biotic how long will this last sine I have stopped it
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Maybe also it was the extreme constant pain that caused it~ as I told you this is new tissue growing and stretching the skin according to the skin specialist~
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 1 year ago

It will take about 3 months to feel back to normal from this

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
