Still Having Pain after taking Levaquin
I had a hysterectomy because of cancer and during the procedure both my ureters were damaged. I was put on Levaquin for almost 6 weeks. Within days my Achilles as well as my elbows began to hurt. I thought it was me just recovering from both the cancer and the following surgeries on my ureters. I could barely walk it was so painful.
Every Doctor I saw asked how I was doing and I told them I felt fine as long as I wasn't moving. I was an avid runner before becoming sick so once I got the go ahead I loaded up on Alieve and started walking and eventually running. At times the pain was so intense I had to stop. I started alternating it with Tennis and eventually I had a complete rupture on my right foot. I had surgery and it was reattached. That was six months ago and it is still very painful to walk everyday. Both feet and both elbows hurt.
I have been in PT for 4 months with very little improvement from the pain. I walk with a limp and feel that I will always be in pain and never be able to be active without pain medicine (which I do try not to take). I started lifting weights and will ride the bike or elliptical but once I stop I am in a great deal of much pain. Please let me know what I can do for treatment. I was once a marathon runner and now have trouble walking.
