Well if any of you have been following along with my threads and posts I have mentioned I am going to need another surgery. I finally heard back from the Dr. he reviewed my lab results but he still feels ( maybe its a gut feeling ?? ) I may have an infection. Yesterday afternoon he called me and he wants me to see him Thursday morning to have some fluid taken out to be checked. I think he mentioned something about white blood cell count?? Based on the findings ( and boy do I hope there is no infection !!! ) I am looking at 2 options. The easy one fingers crossed no infection then I just need a revision however if there is an infection ( life will suck ) I will need 2 surgeries. The first one he needs to take out the current prosthesis and put a spacer in and I will have to have a PICC line for the antibiotics 2X a day for 6 weeks. ( I have had one before these are absolutely no fun period ). After the 6 weeks the spacer comes out and the hopefully last prosthesis goes in. So pretty much my summer is almost over it all depens on the lab results and when I can have the surgery.
