I am scheduled for surgery in November because of a fungal infection in my right hip. The infected prosthesis will be removed and spacers treated with antibiotics and anti-fungal medicine will be inserted. Following that there will be a minimum of six weeks before a test is done to see if the infection has cleared up. I am told fungal infections are very difficult to get rid of. It’s likely that I will not be able to put any weight on that right leg I’ve already been through three months of limited moblity and pain. I’d like to hear from anyone who has been through this procedure. Right now I have many more questions than answers.
