Pathologist and Microbiologist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to HCM,

You have mentioned the culture report of blood, body fluid, wound swab, swab from left hip and fluid from left hip.
The sensitivity for all these samples need to be done.
The antibiotic which is most sensitive for the organism has to be found out from this investigation.
In order to get rid of the infection, you will have to take this antibiotic, oral or injectable to get rid of the infection.
Get the sensitivity test done as soon as possible under the supervision of your doctor.

Thanks and take care
