Sorry, I just have to sound off a bit. I am 4 weeks post op and my knee is really hot, swollen and painful. So what's new?!? Well, I have been diagnosed with a superficial wound infection My GP has started me on 500mg Flucsoxacillin x 4 daily for a week, and hopes this will do the trick.
I am terrified that the infection will get deeper into the knee.....I gather then that the replacement has to be taken out, infection cleared and then done again. Help!!!! Has anyone else had this superficial would infection, and lived to tell the tale? Please???
