Here is my story in a short version. I'm 38 years old on Nov. 2 went to have right knee scoped due to arthritis, clean out some loose pieces. Everything went fine. next day around noon, major pain came to the knee. 2 days later back in the hospital for another scope to clean infection out on knee. After 4 day in the hospital I was released. Then Wednesday before Thanksgiving doctor called and told me that a blood test earlier in the week showed the infection still present and going back in on Friday to open the knee up this time and clean it out. Again another 4 day stay in the hospital. Now it's Jan. 17 the infection is gone but, the knee is still swelled and I can only bend it 90 degrees. I have been taking psychical therapy for a month and the knee seems to have come to a stand still (no more progress). The knee feels tight and I believe it's the muscle that are keeping it from bending instead of the joint. So somebody else been down this road with staph? Does the infection keep the tissue around the knee irritated for a while? Is this the reason for my knee only bending 90 degree? Here are some pictures from my blog. http://grayhawkgrinders.blogspot.com...our-world.html The photos was taken after the 2nd surgery.
