Please help?


Q: Hi, my name is Tiffany and I'm 17 years old. In the past 2 years I've had loads of knee problems that came with loads of pain. In 2009, I had surgery on both of my knees to fix my knee caps (they were slightly off center, which caused me pain playing sports). During my recovery I began to have pains and so I went to get it checked out and found that I had staff infection in my left knee. They then emitted me int the hospital where I stayed for 3 weeks during the process of 7 more surgeries to get infection out or examine on my knee. Since then, I've had pains and went back to where they say nothing is wrong I just need to get liquid out, or mesh that added up over time. Recently I've been with a friend who got staff infecion, unaware that I could get it from her. If I got it from her, how long would it take me to notice with the pain and sickness I am begining to feel?
