Your knee will stay warmer than the other even if it’s just from swelling. I hope your blood work begins to drop again and your infection clears soon.

Good news! My CR-P has dropped to 7. I saw the Ortho Consultant today and all my bloods are looking very positive so he has suggested a halt to the daily Teicoplanin and a move on to oral Augmentin, an enhanced penicillin, three times a day with a review in two weeks time, then maybe stay on this regime for a longer period. My knee is still a bit swollen and tires very quickly so I am hopeful I can improve it gradually with physio and exercise. I am happy.
