Im writing a question regarding my father's right knee which has traces of infection in the bone. Despite 20 years- doctors keep denying him and even though he has gone to a knee specialist;in Kings College i feel that there is so much more that can be done.
Due to his arthritis and overwhelming pain he finds it very hard to stand up and walk and the more he gains weight the worse it becomes for his knee -however he literally can't walk for long periods yet a lone exercise.
He has even tried more than 6 different painkillers however they don't help to reduce the extreme pain.
We live in the UK however i feel that there is so much more that can be done
I just wanted to know is it true that it's impossible to operate on a leg that has a tace of infection and if so is there anyway around it ?
Many thanks, John
