Knee infection questions.

Recommended Posts

Thursday night August 14th my knee started swelling at 5 pm by 9 pm I could'nt walk very good.I went to the family Doc at 3 pm the next day sick with a 102 degree fever.He felt that it was an infection in the joint of my knee so he sent me to an orthopedic doctor.The orthopedic doctor said it was not in my joint.He said he did'nt want to suck the fluid out because he did'nt want to chance penetrating the joint.He sent me to the hospital to get three doses of invanz once daily today being my last by IV.The pain has gone down but the redness has come off the top of my knee and down the side some.Just wondering if I need a second opinion or if anyone has any answers.

it sounds reasonable. You should followup with the orthopaedic guy this week.
