As we told you earlier in this thread, clam shells are never a suitable exercise for a new knee. We recommend never doing them until much, much later in recovery, if at all.My advice... if you can't do a clam shell - you may have a loose prosthetic - Big Swell Events - it may be caused by a loose prosthetic.
You didn't need to start a new thread for the Revision. In fact, it's better if you keep your entire history about your knee in this one thread, so I've merged the two threads together.I'm starting a new thread to post updates from this Bacteria thing.
Your OS and infection doctor (ID) will know wether you need further surgery or a different approach.They're just treating the infection..
