The doctor put me on "partial weight bearing" status for two more weeks. What is anybody's experience here? My meniscus cartilage was worn out on the inside before surgery.

on my 14 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>, a right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> fusion. my doctor left my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>p in just in case I was able to get a knee replacement in the future. MY leg got infected with a MRSa ( aka the super bug) staff infection. the waited 18 months for the leg to fuse and took out the infected hardware (2 paltes and 36 screws) and started me on IV vancomyosen for 3 months. The infection healrd inside my distal femur. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> outbreaks of fever, swelling, and severe pain. I also an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> RSD in my right knee to top it off.
I am starting to get the locks and popping along with pain again an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> I move the knee, but the pain is not as bad as before the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. The therapist says he can feel a catch in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>p so I assuming it's from the work he did to my knee cap for the arthritis. My questions are, did I set myself back by getting off the crutches too soon? On the third week after surgery I started travelling again making a couple of long trips by air, dealing with airports, luggage and all that goes with it.
although the pain doesn't show up an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> I poke or touch my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span>, I can duplicate the pain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> is slightly bent and I press below the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>p and rub to the painward side while still pressing.

If they won't do <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> this would be worst trying ONCE.

It was done before I was diagnosed with MS but I surely had the disease at the time the surgery was done. I do think my recovery was a little slower than average since I fatigue easily and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> some muscle problems. My surgeon knows my diagnosis now. It's noted on the chart BUT he didn't seem to care much. He certainly never indicated I wouldn't an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> qualified just because of the MS.

I had the arthroscopy on the 30/11/2010 and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> done much rehabilitation with Hydro and gym exercises(3-5 times a week) but the left knee still has pain on the underside of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>p and inside area.

This was the last resort for me before <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. I wanted to try it and left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> is better than the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> but with this new med I may be ok for a while. I am very excited about the injections and the gel as well.
Hello, I am a 34 year old female and underwent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> repl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>cement <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> approximately 2 1/2 years ago. approximately 7 weeks post surgery I had a right knee manipulation done. at this time my range of motion is great at +150 degrees. I am able to bend my knee equal to that prior to surgery. I am however having continued pain, swelling and heat. I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> not been pain free for any time since my surgery. The pain is definately different than prior to surgery.
I knew my right knee seemed correct after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> (spot on), but my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> was high. I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> to correct this issue, but after the PT period an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> could easly notice that it was still high. The issue is, most doctors do NOT make any repair work, unless if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> are really persistent (my case). Most of them prefer to fix an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> it’s already broken. Oh, doesn't help to complain now.
I scheduled arthroscopic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> anyway, because I can’t function. then THIS MORNING L <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> showed same symptoms as R <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> did 6 weeks ago! today I am moving around my house in tears, either on crutches or scooting on my butt on the floor because I am scheduled for R knee surgery tomorrow. Now my L knee can’t bear weight! I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> a very healthy lifestyle of good food and regular exercise (only helath issue is hypothyroid—use low dose synthroid).
I am in constant pain and my leg has red spots on the aria of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span></span> repl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>cement and is always wormer then the other leg. Now I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> developed a severe allergy in my sinus, with the tubes plug and water on one ear. No one can tell me what I am allergic to. I read many people having the idea of allergies to titanium and I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> read that the medical community say it not possible. The last two night I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>havean> had a temperature of 101, that comes and goes.
