Had cellulitis after childbirth. Having pain in hip, knee. Swelling in toes, hands. Cyst on left ovary. Serious?

I have 3children I'm 34 years of age. My youngest daughter is 1 and 5months. 2 weeks after birth I had cellulitis in the left breast very bad infection. I was hospitalized for a week to help fight the large lump on my Breast. A few weeks later I started having left hip pain and over time this has traveled to my right hip, left knee, lower back pain. Feeling tired all the time less urinating and I also hAve damaged kidneys. I've recently had swelling appear on my left three toes it last for 3 days Also my hand might swell up on and off. X-ray showed all clear . Bloods came back with liver enzymes high. Ultra sound showed liver. Bladder, pancreas, gallbladder all normal but a large cyst is on my left ovary. I've been having stomach pains which I out down to constipation. My dr took more bloods and wants to discuss this week. I had the marina coyle put in 6 weeks after birth and I'm wondering could this be the cause and does the above look serious. Any advise would be much appreciate.

Kindest regards

Hi, your breast abscess is better now, so we need not consider it, the hip pain and back ache and leg pains could be due to the ovarian cyst. secondarily leads to the kidney problem, the to liver problem.
The marina may not have any relation with these things.
I advise you to consult a nephrologist for diagnosis and treatment. Thank you.
