I am scheduled to have TKR in July, 2019 but am now having second thoughts. Since 2012, I have had 3 staph infections treated with oral antibiotics. I am not afraid of the pain of recovery but am terrified that I am at higher risk for an infection and I am thinking I will be at risk the rest of my life. Is anyone out there in a similar position or have any comments. From what I read, getting a knee infection is a very messy and highly problematic situation. Thanks.
