I am so sorry I have not been on here, on September 9th I woke up and couldn’t move my left leg, I tried to force myself on with my day. I ended up taking myself to the hospital, my surgical site (which was closed) was very swollen and red. I ended up having Sepsis and a Staph infection. I was transferred to a major hospital about an hour away from where I was. On the 10th I had a revision but they only changed the liner of the cup and the ball at the end of the femoral stem. Unfortunately a hematoma formed and I had to have an additional surgery. I am still in ICU, my thigh is still hurting really bad, and the groin pain is almost unbearable. I know you guys like us to post all medications but I am not sure right now, several IV antibiotics is all I know. I will come back to post more details.

Oh my stars....so stressful for you and I hate to see you having to struggle through this.
I'm guessing they have an arsenal to attack this with and get things back on track.
Sincerest best wishes and healing vibes for you.:console2:

Oh my goodness, what an unpleasant journey you are on. Thankfully an infection was found and identified that is being treated but unfortunately you have had to go through two further surgeries.

I am sure this is all very distressing for you but please keep the faith and hang in there. I am sure you are in good hands and remember you have mental support here on BoneSmart.
