Amputation secondary to infection

Please help. I'm stuck. We admitted a patient who had a R-BKA due to cellulitis, osteomyelitis and septic arthritis of R-MTP joints. Do I code aftercare as the patient is no longer on abx? (Then second dilemma: what code do I use for M1017?) Or do I still code the reason for the amputation. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
