Re: Total Hip Replacement
Hi Shirley H.
Thank you for your answer, My wife had a total knee rpl. 12 years ago and she still takes the antibiotics so we each get an order from our dentist each time we have our teeth cleaned.
The real reason for my posting:
I had my surgery in August and after therapy was doing fine when suddenly I couldn't put any weight on my operated leg; several ex-rays have shown nothing to indicate a problem with the prosthesis, we have tried steriod shots on two occasions plus another session of therapy, a series of excersises that I do twice a day, and now we are trying a two month period of walking with cane(sometimes I try without) but i can't walk without a limp. My wife(bless her, she has been such a faithful caregiver), our doctor, and I, have agreed to try this two month period since the next option would probably be further surgery and we want that to be the final option.
