After my husband finished the erbapenem the swelling in his legs subsided. I think that more than proves it was the erbapenem causing the swelling. He still has pain in his knee and leg from top of leg down through the knee and into the lower leg. Physical therapist advises due to twisted nerves….
My husband is now completely off prednisone. He transitioned from the prednisone to hydroxychloroquine. Has anyone else transitioned from the prednisone to the hydroxychloroquine? I would like to hear results of other people doing this. Thank you!
Thank you for the reply. My husband is the one with the cyst. He had back surgery in October & November & it was found when a doppler scan was done to rule out DVT. His knee is so painful & stiff that he is having a hard time walking. Did your wife's eventually go away on its own or does she have to have it drained periodically?
He saw his infectious disease doc last Friday and was taken off the Ertapenem IV. The doctor did not think the swelling in the feet/legs was a side effect of the Ertapenem but the swelling has now subsided……. I only asked for comments from people that had taken Ertapenem and if they had swelling of the feet/legs when doing so. I appreciate any and all comments from anyone that has taken Ertapenem in the past or is currently taking it in regards to any swelling in the feet and/or legs.
