My surgeon said I'd need to take antibiotics for dental work for the rest of my life.
After doing a bit of research for myself, I decided I would take antibiotics for the first year after surgery and then stop.
So somehow I've managed to get a UTI. Never had one before but I think I caught it early and I'm on antibiotics. I'm very concerned with my new knee getting infected. Has anyone been in this boat before?
I had my first UTI after my TKR, too. It seems to happen for some reason. I ended up getting them frequently and went going to a urologist. I was doing one of the worst things I could do for cleansing. I had been using antibiotic wipes and killing off my good bacteria. Make sure your wipes do not contain an antibiotic. My urologist recommended a bidet for cleaning and since I've been following her advice I've not had another one...praise God! I hope these suggestions will help you.
