Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Your daughter is having a urine infection due to which her TLC is raised and she is having fever. She has to take a broad spectrum antiobiotic to control the infection. Also, her haemoglobin is very low. Put her on regular iron supplments with a high protein diet for at least six months.

PLEASE HELP!!! Freedom, and Freedom From the PAIN!!! Please Help!!! I have been diagnosed, (at U.C.D.M.C. Sutter Coast Hospital, Mad River Hospital) with AVN/ON, full skeletal system, with “special complications, vascular and arterial reroute, RHD{Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, etc., etc., just to name a few complications” from steroid, Solu Medrol and Prednisone Poisoning. I have had both hips replaced. Left hip twice, due to rare infection! Found via Radio Active Isotopes, Bone Scan. Hip removed, bedridden without a hip, for over a year, then replaced. Three Teeth Surgically Removed . Due to complications of Avascular Necrosis of the Teeth and Jaw Bone! Have had recurrent, asepsis and sepsis every 2-3 years. Being taken via ambulance, just day’s, sometimes month’s, after having pain meds cut in half, or more, each time, and again! Exactly what he was told not to do, repeatedly, by my Dr. s at U.C.D.M.C., S.C.H. and M.R.H.! I have tried everything my current Dr. has asked, or pushed me into, that I am capable of doing. I ve had endure endless, painful test, retest, pills and more pills. That I have had to bring in information on, from U.C.D.M.C.. To prove to him, that I should not even of tried it, or had it done. That it was hurting me and crippling me even more! I just want not to be in pain, hurt anymore and have something resembling a life back! I have been trying to get a referral for a Medtronic Pain Pump. U.C.D.M.C., Follow Up Care calls me every year, that I m hospitalized, with a pain pump, or a new pain pump comes out. Asking, if I had all up to date information, parts, pieces and if I wanted to try out, or have my current pain pump replaced. Is there anyway I can expedite getting a referral, or skype to see a physician. So I don t have to endure another lonely and painful year, of unnecessary, painful test and pills that hurt me! Specialist that have no experience, patients with or have even heard of AVN/ON. I do not wish to burden, risk my life or those around me. To be taken via ambulance, only to awaken in the hospital for the 9th time. Being asked by Dr.s , the same questions, why, how, and who, has let my pain gotten, so far out of control, yet again?! Why is your current Dr. not listening to you, or followed our instructions and orders?! All Dr. s I ve spoken with agree, with the proper nutrition, exercise and pain management, I should be able, to do anything, (non weight bearing) within reason. Right now, I am not, because of all of the above, all due to pain management. I would like to be healthy enough, that I am able to have surgery, safely, when and if needed, including Stem Cell Therapy. To date, they have had no success, to cure it that way, as of yet. Please, Please Help! I can t take the pain or abuse much longer. Any direction, guidance or help would be more than greatly appreciated. Please Help!!! Thank You, Mr. Robert E.
