I had chronic osteomyelitis in my left femur as a child. I had extensive surgeries on the femur over a period of 10 years. After many years of being OK excepting a bit of arthritis, I had a bad fall two months ago, hurting my lower back. The pain has now gone into my hip and femur. I am wondering if this could have triggered anything relating to the osteomyelitis or would it be completely cured by now?
