Total knee replacement infection after 9 years.
Hello @jlflynn123 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I am so sorry to read about the difficulties your husband has had with his surgery and recovery.
Where are things at with his knee and his pain now?

Hello, thanks for sharing your experience. My husband is facing revision surgery since his levels of cobalt and chromium continue to trend upward. He has pervasive joint pains and brain fog which he believes is from metallosis. Did you experience symptoms from metallosis and were they relieved after revision? He has always been an active athlete playing baseball and skiing for many years on his new hips. Thank you.
