Repeated fever

My father aged 73 years has been Asthmatic for ages and four years back he underwent bilateral orchiectomy for Prostrate cancer. Since then he developed cellulitis in the legs with his skin in the legs becoming dark and scaling off and with liquid oozing out from the lower limb. With medication the liquid oozing out has stopped and time and again he develops fever every 2 months which persist for 2 days with antibiotics (Ornidazole - Oflaxin or Glevo). The doctor at time brings the fever from 102 degrees Amikacin and fevastine injection and recommends the above said antibiotics for 2-3 days. I would like to understand if the fever is due to his cellulitis infection and whether the doctor is proceeding in the correct lines and what can be done to prevent this 2 day fever every alternate month. Pls advise keeping in mind that he has mobility problems and requires help in moving about as well.Pls also suggest any tests that may be required to find the root cause.

Sudden haemoglobin drop

2.5 months ago my haemoglobin level was 12.9gm/dL. Yesterday's test came out as 6.2gm/dL. I have the symptoms of anemia: lightheadedness, palpitations, weakness, etc. My blood pressure is 90/80. (Systolic blood pressure 90). I have longstanding anxiety and depression issues (past 5 years). I had been smoking regularly, but have recently reduced. Just looking for an opinion before I take more tests. What could be the reason for the sudden fall? I ate spinach the day before the test, although I have a reduced appetite. I don't know if it matters, but I've been experiencing pain in my lower left abdomen (just above the upper border of my pelvis) and have loose motions. Just want to understand what could be happening.
