I have tore some ligaments in my leg. I had been on cipro for 2 weeks for kidney infection, and one side effect is torn ligaments, and with lupus etc. I cannot take this med anymore. I go next week for some physical therapy. I was a bit concerned, because in the past I have had a blood clot in my leg, but I am thinking this one will be ok with therapy, and rest. I will just have to work on some more of my quilt. That is always good therapy.
