Infection after TKR
I had a TKR revision last October and three weeks later came down with staph infection. IV antibiotics then oral antibiotics were working, after a reopen and clean out, until I got a stomach bug in Feb 2019 and antibiotics couldn't stay in my system. Staph came raging back and now am facing removal and antibiotic spacers put in. I have a lot of questions for anyone else who has gone through this. First of all, I'm 56, healthy – other than my stupid knee – and an executive running a large department. I only missed a week with the revision, I did great and felt like a million bucks. I didn't drive for about three weeks, but could walk just fine. With the mobility spacer, can you walk? Can you drive at some point? I am really struggling with putting my life on hold for this and want to know if there is anyone out there who has had this done, is about my age and what your experience was. I can't stand being "taken care of" although my husband will do it, if I let him. 🙂 thank you!
