Has anyone suffered complications from their limb salvage surgery?
Has anyone suffered complications from their limb salvage surgery? I first contracted a huge joint infection (nearly sepsis), and had to have a antibiotic cement spacer while I finished chemo. And since then I’ve had a number of mechanical issues, including two dislocations, requiring surgeries again. I’ve have 9 surgeries in total relating to the cancer & joint replacement. I also suffered permanent femoral neuropathy. Can anyone relate? It’s so disruptive to my life.
