Posted by Virginia "Ginnie" Leiner on May 15, 2018 at 12:00pm 5 Comments

In March 2017, I had my artificial knee on the left replaced with a new artificial knee as the old one came loose and moved left.

In October 2017, they determined the right artificial knee was infected and took it out, replacing it with a spacer for 5 weeks.  Turns out they were wrong, it was not infected (good news for me) but the…
