recurrent MRSA & joint replacement

Lets see....
my husband has gotten MRSA infections. (due to low immune system):
Quite a few times. (finger, buttox, leg, foot (cellulitis infection: He ended up in the hosptial).
My husband is supposed to have hip (joint) replacement surgery. I"m not sure how easy it is if you have recurrent MRSA infection & are supposed to have a hip replacement, to catch MRSA in the hip or joint you are having replaced?
are there any special precautions we should take before getting his hip done?

Thanks,
Bonnie

Re: recurrent MRSA & joint replacement

Hi Bonnie:

It seems to me the best person to ask about the possibility of having a recurrent MRSA infection in a newly replaced hip, is a hip replacement surgeon. Infection is a very serious possiblity in replaced hips.

We hipsters even have to take an anti biotic an hour before simple dental cleaning and exam. My hip surgeon said I must wait for 90 days after my hip replacement to have my teeth cleaned and examined. One more month to go yet.
