  • Knee revision timing

    I had the 1st knee operation of a 2-stage revision for staph 8 weeks ago. I'm not sure I'm ready for the 2nd operation because I am very, very weak. My considerable pain is probably not relevant. For those of you who had this grueling procedure, how long was it between your 2 operations?
