Re: about my knee surgery

If you are a healthy person with no vascular or diabetic issues you should be fine with removal of your hardware -however there is always risk of infection with every surgery.The reason I am replying to your mail is my spouse is presently undergoing aggressive antibiotic iv therapy (4 months already)for having developed Osteomyelitis from hardware placed 23 yrs ago for fracture of tibia and knee. I suggest getting a few opinions before making your decision and let us know how you do,
