I had hip replacement 3 weeks later its infected, and had to be removed, corse of IV antibiotics for 6 weeks, now its going on 7months waiting to have it replaced, but my CRP levels are elevated, so they won't do surgery! getting so frustrated, I have to live at my Daughters house, because there are no stairs! I just want to get home, anyone else having this problem! how do I lower my CRP levels?

Well, I heard many cases about having hip difficulties due to depuy's defective hip devices. Others were complaining to it. See here for more information .
