Nurses and all joint replacements...Please
Hi all you wonderful ladies and gentlemen that are nurses. I'm hoping someone can give me some ideas on this. Bill had a total hip replacement last MAy 19th. Surgery, healing, PT were all a major success. All of a sudden he started to have severe pain the his thigh on that side. Saw the surgeon, did an x-ray, hip is intact then wanted some blood work done to rule out infection. They called yesterday and said two # were sky high so now they want to do an aspiration. He can't stand to be in pain anymore. The aspiration will be done in the hospital so I hope they will sedate him. they did not verify whether or not he has an infection so we don't know what they're looking for in the aspiration.
1) would an infection come out of the blue all these months later? 7 months later?
2) what do they do about it when it's a total joint replacement.
3) dangerous?

Any and all thought swould be appreciated.
