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

Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear sir, It will be very difficult to answer it as it depends how serious an infection is and what organisms are causing that . It cannot be predicted as now but generally infections respond to the treatment . You need to see a doctor for this evaluation. Dr. Shruti
