my grandaubter has had 3 surgeries to replace all of her heart valves with pigs valves but infection has closed off 2 of the pigs valves and the other 2 have infection in them but are partly functioning. How long can she live. She is in the Hospice Hospital in serious condition. Anti biotics are not attacking the staph infection. She is a drug addict and contracted this bacterial infection from dirty needles. According to her Dr there is no known exact antibiotic for this bacteria in her blood .
