NOVEMBER 2015 – Did you Suffer an Infection After Your Knee Replacement Surgery? Does this sound like your experience with an infection after knee replacement surgery?
- When released to rehab, I almost went comatose because of a fever. I was taken to the ER, where they found that I had sepsis. I was hospitalized because of it.
- After two knee replacements, I went into a nursing home. I stayed in bed for 6 weeks, but still got an infection. They cultured it, and found that it was two different infections. I have been hospitalized three times because of recurring infections.
- I was in rehab 4 days after my knee replacement surgery. On day 5, I woke up, and my knee was bleeding and full of pus. I was hospitalized due to infection.
- After my knee infection, I had a staph infection, and was hospitalized again.
