My husband had knee replacement last July. He has always said it just didn't "feel right". So in Feb. they took him to surgery twice to clean out the knee. Last Monday, they took him back and removed the knee and put a cement spacer in. He will be on IV antibiotics for 6 weeks, we go to the infection disease control clinic every day for new bags of his antibiotics. He cannot put any weight on that leg or bend it, so he is in a brace from ankle to thigh. The weird thing is that the cultures have not grown any infection. The dr is thinking now that he is possibly allergic to one or more of the components of the knee, so they are sending him to an allegy clinic for testing. It will be and has been a long hard hill to climb. We are praying that they find something so that when they do the next replacement in 8 weeks, this one will be alright.
