Hi and thanks for your query,
I am not in your country but would love to contribute something to your management,
management of bone infections or osetomyelitis, especially in adults is a very delicate issue. It should take not less than about months of intensive anti biotherapy.
Compliance with these drugs is very important to avoid resistance and chronic pain. In some settings, specific exams like cultures should be done to determine the causative organism and antibiotic sensitivity tests done. If your physician could do everything possible that the bone infection is not a tuberculosis bone infection, which is becoming very common, with a particular treatment protocol, it would be of help.
Thanks and hope this helps,
Best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
