Hi, my name is Tracey and I'm from Kent in England...my story is long as I expect can be said for alot of us! I'm 46 and after very successful limb salvage when I was 21 and 19 very healthy years with just a couple of revisions, at the age of 40 I developed a pseudomonas infection which has lead to 6 years of cnstant revisions, clean outs, and antibiotics. My last major surgery was to have a total femoral replacement for the second time. Mechanically I am great but my limb (left leg) seems unable to stop producing fluid and opening at weak points. I would really appreciate and feeback if any of you are living with chronic infection or a fluid problem in just the salvaged limb. Sorry to crash your American site but when i came across you you all seemed so helpful and supportive with each other. Many thanks Tracey
