Hi all brief history here. 2000 first TKR after multiple reconstructive surgeries. 2001 second TKR after fall and damaged prosthetic June 2018 can't live with the pain any longer and have 3rd TKR. July 2018 3rd TKR removed due to fungal infection, first set of spacers inserted. November 2018 second set of spacers inserted again due to infection February 27 2019 4th TKR inserted with long rod instead of normal prosthetic due to the fact that a large hole was torn in femur while scraping cement out from the third TKR. Now I also have titanium plate as femur was also fractured while removing 3rd component. To date infection markers are not terribly high but they are elevated, knee is hot to the touch and swells with activity. Pain is worse than when this all started last year. Waiting 6 more weeks to see what we are going to do next. Amputation is starting to sound good.
