Bill New Problem

I am still recovering from CELLULITIS in my arm, Wrist and hand. My left arm doubled in size and I was on antibiotic drip plus fusions in Hospital for 2 weeks. Very pain full but slowly getting better after 2 months now. Has any one had experience of this in the arm, because it usually goes into the leg. I hope I am on the right site here. Please advice.

Kind Regards Bill

Yes you are on right site and your experience sounds all too common for both arm and leg lymphies. The LSN does a really good leaflet on Cellulitis as noticing symptoms earlier can mean getting on to antibiotics earlier. Your GP may agree to give you a supply of antibiotics to have on standby in case it happens again which might save another hospital stay.

Good luck x
