Re: Chances of Having Another Staph Infection

Thank you all for your quick replies - I really appreciate it!

I will be having a screw placed through my calcaneous and talas bones in my foot. I understand there is always a chance of contracting or aquiring staph when you have surgery, especially when foreign objects are placed in the bone. So, I know I am taking that risk by having that surgery.

I guess what I am really asking, is am I at a greater risk of another infection because I have had two previously?

Thanks again!
Amy
