I am in the Uk and a few years ago I had a hip replacement operation redone. Fortunately, the operation was successful and a few weeks after the operation I received a card from the National Joint Registry with details of the name of the implant and what it is made of.
So far, I have not received a card with details of the implant used in my knee operation which was done in August, and just wondered whether it is normal practice to be informed about which knee implant has been used.
Secondly, do other people take antibiotics before visiting the hygenist at the dentist. I am supposed to go every three months and it is becoming harder and harder to persuade my GP to give me antibiotic cover before attending the dentist to have my teeth cleaned.
I know that there is divided opinions about this, but after going through hip surgery twice and now a knee replacement a few months ago, I feel much happier it I am able to take anti biotics before visiting the dentist.
Just wondered how other people cope.
