No redness or swelling of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> - just sharp pain on weight-bearing.

01PM To: Physician comments regarding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> surgery I have a problem with my left knee giving away which it did in February, 2008. I tried to stop my fall by grabbing the railing of the steps causing my right knee to twist. I ignored it and figured it was probably a soft tissue injury that would heal in 8 to 12 weeks. It has been several months and I finally went to an Orthopaedic Surgeon. I was told that both knees were arthritic.
I had a total hip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span> in 1999, and the hip did well for about 2 years. Then, out of the blue, I began having increasingly bad hip pain, swelling, and redness. Eventually this alarmed me to the point of having the implanted joint removed, and the surgeon really destroyed a lot of bone getting the device out. He diagnosed me with mrsa; and put a ceramic antibiotic filled temporary hip in, and put me on a pic line with 6 initual weeks of vancomycin ttherapy.

one went from the top of her inner thigh to her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> and the other from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> to the ankle.

I had a total knee replacement of my right knee (Smith & Nephew titanium knee) on May 4th. The last couple of weeks I have been experiencing moderate muscle spasms. I was prescribed muscle relaxers to help me. In the last couple of days the spasms have increased considerably and the pain in my knee has been excruciating. I had constant throbbing pain at my incision site all last night that was almost more than I could bear.
Hi, i'm not sure about the precedures your talking about, 7-8 yrs ago i had my right ACL reconstructed. all i know is i had two orthoscoptic ports and one 3-4" incision below the knee cap. the reason i responded is to let you know how important physical therapy is right away, if you don't take this seriously you will have scar tissue build up that may be more painful than the injury its self.
Hello Dear, Most patients develop an area of decreased sensation (numbness) on the lateral (outer) aspect of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>. This is normal after a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span>. This area typically decreases in size over 6-12 months after the knee replacement. This numbness is expected and normal after knee replacement.It is not a sign of any problem. You should focus on rehabilitation exercises and physiotherapy. Refer http://www.jrsi.org/files/Meneghini-Partial-knee-Discharge-Instructions.

I underwent a left, Cemented Total knee <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span> in May 2007 and experienced terrible pain behind the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> and also felt like my my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> was going to explode when trying to bend it. My orthopedic surgeon was quite confident it was scar tissue causing the problem. He performed a manipulation under anesthesia in October, this is where he forced the knee to bend repeatedly to break up the scar tissue.
I went back to see my knee surgeon today. This is what he told me. "I see a cement fragment. The space is too big between the bones, and you MCL is weak and stretched." "But you can have diagnostic arthroscopy, or you can not." I said, can I wait until the summer? He says, "Sure, you can wait as long as you like, but in the mean time you need to do weight bearing exercise to strengthen your muscles.
Since recovering from a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span> operation in March my bowel activity has been affected.

I had a right hip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span> due to dysplasia in Nov. 2007. In Jan. 2008 I was still using my cane outside the house because of the weather, and my right leg slipped going up steps to church. Later that day my knee was swollen and painful. But, I thought great, my hip doesn't hurt so at least I did not dislocate anything. I was still going to physical therapy and they told me to ice it and take some pain relievers then call my dooctor. My doctor was out of town so I saw a partner.
