In my experience I have had to have another course of an antibiotic for a given infection.
I am glad that you have contacted your regular doctor about this. You might also want to contact your hip surgeon and ask him about this. Please let us know what you find out. The rest of us might have the same situation at some point.
I recently had the same kind of acute bronchitis that former President George HW Bush had and I had a course of an antibiotic. This is now cleared up and I have not noticed any problems with either replacement hip.
Had two hip replacements about a year apart - the last one being August 2009.
