My son is 21 and had knee surgery. They appeared to get cellulitus and was treated with Iv antibiotics . Leg got better other sympton worse. Ended up Er for 6 days had 103 temps, high white count, high creactive protien, high sed rate, low HG which keeps flectuating from 9, 13.2, now 12.4 Low red. His neck was stiff T which came back moderatley enlarges lymphgland possible chronic infection or abcess in Submadibluar gland. all glads are enlarges some necrotic. He is getting better, no fever, no high white count, but still low Hemoglobin slightly low red and sed rate is in 650 range. They ve talked about biopsie but still leaning towards infection more then lymphoma . Its been 2 weeks now he looks pale and short of breath going up stairs weight loss from being sick is still 10 pds lighter. Do we just weight the month and do another ct and blood or test every week? so worried.
