It is in a well-circumscribed area, in an area where she had lesions previously. She had cultures done back in May, on May 10th. It occurred first in January of this year. She had light growth of coagulase-negative staphylococcus and that was all on her last bacterial culture. She has had multiple sex partners in her life.

Her back is really bothering her. She has had physical therapy but really has not noted any real improvement thus far. She was suggested to try Pilates, which she is doing daily. The pain is worse after working for several days and, although she had the injury on the left, it radiates all the way through to the right. At the end of the week, she has difficulty even walking around in the mall. She takes Naprosyn and Prilosec for her pain. She notes a slight improvement.
