What causes frequent fever after vertebrate fracture?

My mother fractured 2 vertebrates in her back in June, she has had a couple injections for pain that have not helped much. She is still in a lot of pain yet, she spent almost 2 months mostly in bed. She has lost 50 lbs since then, and now has no appetite, feels nauseous all the time. I just don t know what to do anymore to help her, they did an endoscopy last week, said the stomach looked fine. I wanted them to do a biopsy while they were in there to check for H. Pylori, but he said he only did that if the stomach was inflamed. She also runs a fever off and on, she was in the hospital for 3 days, and they sent her home with a fever.

you haven't mentioned if she is diabetic or not, her age , her build etc which are all factors needed to assess, try Inj. decadurabolin, 25 mg I'm weekly for 3 doses at weekly intervals once a week, Inj. diclofenac or trauma doll I'm on alternate and see along with a course of Antibiotics tab, ce folic 200 mg twice daily.
