Chances of Having Another Staph Infection

OK, so I am scheduled for another surgery - same dr, same foot, subtalar fusion.

I had complications in each of the last two surgeries I had on this foot - MSSA, osteomyelitis in my fibula following ankle fusion and osteomyelitis in my first metatarsal/great toe following bunionectomy.

My dr will be doing this procedure at a different location, but I will be inpatient for a couple of days following while I receive some IV antibiotics.

What are the chances that I will have another infection?

Any help that can be provided will be appreciated.

Thanks!
