    Knee Infection* Still Struggling

    Hi @Celle after my washout I was seen by a member of the original surgeons team on four separate occasions and two others, one time each. I also had an MRI scan to assess soft tissue damage. After the MRI the original surgeon told me there is absolutely nothing more they can do! To get off the...

    Knee Infection* Still Struggling

    Hello everyone, well it's been a while since I have been on the thread! Short version: I have had a distal femur osteotomy, partial knee replacement and more recently Dec 15, 2017 a TKR, with an infection after and operated again Jan 9, 2018. With all this I just haven't noticed any difference...

    Knee Infection* Still Struggling

    Hi @KarriB, thanks for getting in touch. The Dr just said to get the muscles around the knee working together. Not to be over aggressive but just to be able to feel like they have a job to do. Gentle heel slides and leg raises. I have noticed tightness in my calf so will follow up with your...

    Knee Infection* Still Struggling

    Hello everyone, quick update. I’m now off the daily IV, leg has been out of the splint for 7days which is a welcome relief. My bloods are getting to where they should be. I will go back for another test on Wednesday, hopefully giving me 100% all clear in regard to infection. My questions are...

    Hi @Schenk, what is the oil blend and what is it’s purpose? I’m open to any ideas to aid in recovery outside of the ruthless PT. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh wow! I’m Ertapenem and Teicoplanin for 14 days. I’m also having further blood tests, Monday 15th. I see the surgeon who performed the washout Tuesday 16th. He is part of the surgeon who performed the TKRs team. Hopefully will get some good news! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Knee Infection* Still Struggling

    @KarriB- yes I am rest and keep my knee up, thank you. If you don’t mind me asking, did the antibiotics work for you? I’m not familiar with what the PICC line is. I have been told numerous that they type of antibiotics that I am receiving must be administered from the hospital. Sent from my...

    @Schenk: great stuff, reads like you are doing very well all bar the sleep. I’ll probably throw a big party when I get a decent nights sleep! Keep up the good work! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Knee Infection* Still Struggling

    Hi everyone-well since I have been home I am feeling a lot less stressed and frustrated. Even though I have been put into a splint for 2 weeks and on crutches I am just happy to be home! I have to go to the hospital everyday for the next 2 weeks at 6pm to receive 1hr 30min of IV antibiotics it’s...

    Knee Infection* Still Struggling

    @robhunt3, it’s St Heliers. Consultants and their teams really great. I’m talking post op care. Cardboard wee bottles handed back to reuse because they can’t find others, drugs administered but not recorded, drugs not being administered when should have been to fight infection, no information...

    Knee Infection* Still Struggling

    A light at the end of the tunnel. I have been released after negotiating! I’m now in a splint 24/7 for the next 2 weeks. I must travel to hospital and continue to receive IV antibiotics at 6pm for 2weeks. Samples taken from ‘washout’ will be continued to be grown to establish bacteria...

    @robhunt3, I’m South West London. The Orthopaedic Centre where I had previous ops, absolutely fantastic. I don’t know why I have been put in this particular hospital. The post op care that I am experiencing is non existent! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
