Three years ago my wife underwent a surgery for a prosthesis revision after an explant and two spacers. Prior to this, she had submitted to dozens of under endoscopy samples to ascertain the absolute wound healing.
On November 8 she underwent an L4, L5 lamino- and L4-L5_S1 recessotomy surgery. On November 20 she moved to the rehabilitation department and some infection signs appeared in the wound: the CRP increased from 56 to 163.
Since then it always dropped until 9.2 at the end of January, thanks to the virologist’s antibiotic treatment, that still continues today. After the visit of the surgeon who operated her, she started perceiving pain and the knee started to swell.
I kindly ask you if your treatment can be useful to avoid a potential prosthesis re-infection.
Waiting for your reply, I thank you in advance for your advice.
