Default Re: Former Bengals LB May Lose His Leg

This is a little longer read with some interesting pieces


Quote:
Reggie has a theory about how his knee became the cesspool that crippled him. He believes – and says doctors have agreed – that the infection started after a root canal he had in 1989, while still a member of the Bengals. His surgically repaired mouth became infected. The infection spread to "the weakest part of my body" which, Reggie says, would have been his right knee, which had been repaired for the second time in '86.

Dr. Jason Spector, who would be Reggie's plastic surgeon, said the theory is possible, but unproven. "Dental (surgery) is thought to cause infections in prostheses. The problem with that is, the bacteria in the knee should match (the bacteria) in the mouth. I don't know that they ever made that match."

we need CND in here STAT
