Many online sites, and acquaintences, warn about infection
in the knee after knee replacement. Although the docto
r uses a pre-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>
antibiotic and tests for MRSA (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>staph</span>
) and treats if needed, the threat of infection
still seems to
hover over such surgeries.
The hospital has given me a special cleanser to
use the week before surgery
. I have had my teeth cleaned. And, I do understand that if I get sick, surgery
will be rescheduled.
