Okay so, my story's a bit confusing and I've been trying for five days to fix my problem so I figured I would ask here.
I had both dlcs for skyrim downloaded on PS3. Then one day I go to load my game and after the load screen (with the spinning things and info about the game) it just went black. I looked up how to fix it and it said delete the dlcs then reinstall them. So I did.
I was stupid enough to open the game (which I was in skaal village at the save) when the dlc was downloading and not installed. I wound up in riverwood and my follower (Calder) was no where to be found. After I reinstalled dragon born I went back to skaal village but he wasn't there. I tried waiting in solsthiem and in skyrim in case he was just catching up to me but that didn't work. I also tried the "go to jail" trick many times too (I got a 45 bounty for punching a chicken)
I tried getting a new follower but they all say I still have one so I can't get a hardy pack mule for all my quests. I have no idea what to do and it's just annoying me at this point.
