Since I had my first clot in March 2011 I have had infection after infection. I take antibiotics but after a week or 2 off them the infection comes back.I did have pnumonia at the time I had the first clot and 3 times since and I have also been told by my rhumy that because I had multiple clots the bottom of my lung, on boh sides has died and this is a 'playground' for germs. I am also allergic to most antibiotics they cant give me the ones they would normally give. so i am going to be prone to infections but im getting them every couple of weeks. I wondered if any one else has had these kind of problems and did it eventually settle down.
