They found out I had another bad uti and they treated the abcess. The doctor didn't even look at my knee that I still can't walk on. So I got IV antibiotics and fluids then I was released with a packed abcess and told to take out the packing in 2 days and more antibiotics to take at home. Nothing for pain at all. So I'm still hurting and all.

On the knee thing, if there is no immidiate break or something they can take care of immidiately they should have told you "follow up with an orthpidist) idk maybe they were busy and forgot to tell you, but generally they will only take care of ostio issues if you're in immidiate danger of something serious. I'm very sorry about your pain

I'm glad you're home. You should follow up with an orthopedist, and if they find nothing see a rheumy doc. Hugs love and prayers your infx clears and your pain reduced greatly! 🙂💕🙏🌸
