I had septic shock about a month ago! Just wondering what the chances of me now getting septic arthritis as I'm having allot of pain in my elbow?
Septic shock: Recurrence of septic shock after having one depends on what caused the first episode. For example, if the first episode was due to a foreign source that has since been removed, the chance of recurrence is low. Certainly see your doctor soon for any concerns of recurrence as this can be life threatening. Joint pain after an ICU stay is common and this may be something unrelated to infection.
Osteomyelitis n septic arthritis surgery today. What chances of full recovery? Recovery time? How long does it take to clear the infection? Thank you
Depends: Infection in the joint and bone needs to be removed surgically. Typically one surgery is enough to remove all infected areas and a course of antibiotics for at least 10-14 days after. In many patients this operation needs to be repeated and can take months to heal. Your surgeon will best give you the expected time of healing and recovery. Good luck!

Low likelihood: Sternal clavicular septic arthritis is an unusual form of septic arthritis generally seen in diabetics. It is usually caused by Staphylococcus aureus though Gram negatives can cause this. Given the definitive procedure of washout and cartilage removal was performed, the risk of relapse is low. Work on addressing the risk factors that led this. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer

Infected joint: Septic means infection. A septic joiint is an infected joint. The treatment is to treat the infection and save the joint.
Low, but possible!: If properly treated, sometimes needing debridement as well as antibiotic therapy, it is likely you would be cured. In some instances debritis inside the joint "hides" bacteria from the antibiotics and it returns. This usually happens fairly quickly. With time passage, the chance of recurrence is quite low!
Septic arthritis: Hi Andrew: Septic arthritis, or infection of a joint is a medical emergency. Joint infection comes on rapidly with intense pain, joint swelling, inability to move the affected joint / limb and fever/ chills. If there is suspicion of infection, joint fluid must be aspirated and tested for bacteria (and also things like gout crystals). I hope this note is not for you! NishaSee 1 more doctor answer
