I have a hip infection for the second time in 4 years, had 4 replacements over 30 years and have been very unwell with sepsis. Also been in hospital 7 weeks on IV. I am now home with spacer until February when hopefully another new hip will be implanted, huge doses of antibiotics and some discomfort and pain, but nothing like 4 years ago when my spacer bent. I am managing to do most things on my crutches but get worried about my blood tests and how the future will pan out. Any suggestions? Has anyone else had 2 infections?
