I have had seven (7) knee surgeries in the last 10 years. (3) Three Strep infections in the Knee replacement has been the main cause. Antibiotic cement spacers, PCCLines, and antibiotic infusions followed. After all this my spirits remain high. I'll have the third knee after September 2020. I'm told by the Infectious Disease Dept. "Although blood tests have normalized, we think we have it this time." My question, Has anyone been given alternatives if this infection cannot be defeated?
