I was diagnosed 6 months ago with Cat Scratch Fever. After multiple rounds of antibiotics, the bartonella bacteria is now gone...however I still have one swollen lymph node(pecan size), which is occasionally painful.
Attempts to drain have been unsuccessful as there is no fluid. Is this normal for the lymph node to still be swollen even after blood work shows the infection is gone>
