In order I would say
Fluid Volume deficit
Acute pain
Altered Nutrition
Risk for altered skin integrity
Risk for infection (it is likly that your pt. has an infection and that is the cause so you need to read up on him/her to see if this fits)
Knowlege defict

    Wow you need a lot of nursing diagnoses! I would not think risk for infection would be up there...But you can almost always use knowledge deficit... R/T treatment plan or medication?

    only other ones I can of would be , acute pain, perhaps fatigue? and I wouldn't say risk for infection unless he has some sort of incision or open wound.
