Sat, Mar 2 3:30am · What kind of mobility can I expect with an antibiotic spacer in my hip in Joint Replacements

@izabel congrats that's awesome. My aspiration came back negative but Sed and CRP are still elevated so I still don't have surgery date. I go back to the surgeon on the 5th of April. You got this everything is going to work out.

@bbreckenridge, my aspiration also went well yesterday. I'm not sure what my sed rate and crp levels are. I will find out on the 27th of this month. Good luck with everything

@bbreckenridge mine are still elevated as well, but the I'd doctor had my picc line removed as well. My aspiration test is also tomorrow morning, but my surgery hasn't been scheduled yet. The surgeon told me maybe in 2 to 3 months. Good luck tomorrow

@linjane
Hi, just a little update went to see my Id doc last week but he wasn't in the office so I had to meet with his colleague and of course my ESR and CRP levels were still elevated, but this doctor said he doesn't like to go by the ESR and CRP. He said it's best to do an aspiration test and see what comes from that so he said he would talk to my ortho surgeon and see what he says. I did find out Monday morning that they will be stopping antibiotic treatments on the 21st of this month. Hope all is going well with you!!

@linjane yes they have decreased some but not enough. The doctor said next week they will be starting me on stronger antibiotics. Thanks for the prayers I really appreciate it, I will also pray for you all

@Iturn9 I'm so sorry your going through this I pray they don't have to amputate your leg. I'm 36 and I'm starting to wish I would have waited as well

@linjane well I jjust got back from the doctors office and unfortunately my levels aren't low enough so I have to continue with my antibiotic treatments.

@linjane I was taking three different antibiotics at first vancomycin, rosephin, and ranvampyn. I hope I spelled them correctly…lol, but I started having a reaction to vancomycin and the rosephin, and the ranvampyn (which was an oral antibiotic). So they took me off the vancomycin and rosephin. And replaced it with ranvampyn in iv form, and teflero. I'm just hoping they cleared the infection, because this spacer is very uncomfortable and painful. I've had the spacer in now since November 7
