|George, I'm so sorry to hear about your infection. I am recovering from a TPLO myself and my mom has joined a group called Orthodogs on yahoo. There is a lady there who's boxer had a deep joint/bone infection following his TPLO. She ended up having to do injections into his open wound directly with a huge powerful human antibiotic. I don't want to scare you with his horror story, but she might have some good ideas based on experience of what might help. If you are interested in joining the group and getting in touch with her, I can get you all the info. She has been a huge help to those of us who either had infection scares or ended up with an actual infection. Orthodogs is a great ortho-specific group with tons of experienced people on there and I really think they might be able to help you.
By the way, you say it's a staph infection. Have the done an actual culture of your infection? Is it MRSA?
No matter what, I hope you get better soon!
