Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for revErting back. Infection can take place even in healthy tissues and bones where no prior injury is there so the chances are always there . But as the period after healing increases the chances are less . And it can occur after one year also. Take care. Dr. Shruti
