Replacement Knee Rejection?
toomanyinfections posted:
In September, 2012 I had a total knee replacement. From the beginning I experienced a lot of pain and never felt like it fit right. In January 2014 my surgeon scoped it, thinking that maybe scar tissue was the issue but instead he found an infection. In March 2014 and a different doctor I underwent surgery to remove the infected knee and had a metal rod inserted from my ankle to mid thigh. Lots of medication for 6 weeks and at week 8, April 2014, after many many test for additional infections I received a new knee. Within one week I developed not one but two separate infections, one bacterial and one yeast. Right now I'm on mega doses of meds and my stomach is sick all the time. My doctors are trying to keep me out of the hospital so the previous surgeries do not happen again. I am heartsick and losing hope that I will ever be able to be rid of these infections. Any ideas? Anyone?
