I had leg surgery a year ago, arid placed in

I had leg surgery a year ago, arid placed in my left femur. When I've had dental procedures, the dentist has had me take 2 clindamycin before the dental work. Is this something I will have to do for a period of time? I can only take 2 or 3 antibiotics, without a lot of side effects.
Thank you, Jill

My Father-in-law is 97 recently broke a leg and has been in re-hab for about a week post surgery. A few minutes ago our brother-in-law texted that he is being rushed to ER and is on oxygen b/c his blood pressure has dropped. He is otherwise very healthy and is not on medication of any sort except pain moderation. Is DVT in the realm of possibility here?
