Thank you. My doctors are saying nothing right now – we’re just in a holding pattern until the needle aspiration 2 weeks after the IV antibiotic course is done. And my surgeon says he doesn’t know when the custom joint will be ready; only that it’s being made. MeanwhileI’ve lost my whole summer – no swimming, no cycling, not even walks. AndI’m a cellist who can’t play the cello with the spacer (& is missing out on my summer concert series, of which I missed 2 of 4 concerts due to last year’s emergency surgery for the staph infection. This whole thing has shaken me to the core – surgery has never faxed me, but this terrifies me -all the more because I keep seeing stories of patients who had to have the spacer repeated 2 or more times or took years to have their infection eradicated.
