Infection Fear : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

In the very near future I am looking at TKR. I have heard horror stories of surgery problems steming from infections, be it knee or hip; what is the major cause of these infections?

Also, I have some time to get my weight down and build up my leg muscles prior to surgery, how strong should these muscle be?
