Avatar n tn The incision was made on the inside of his leg below the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> (extending another incision which was made back in 1969 from a football injury). Since the surgery he has had little to no feeling in his last three toes and the ball of his foot his very painful. The doctor says that he may have moved a nerve but that the feeling will come back. It is now November and still no sign of any feeling. He says he feels like he has a club foot. What do you suggest.
Avatar n tn I AM POST TOTAL <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span> X 6 MOS. I HAVE HEAT IN THE <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> WITH SOME DISCOMFORT AND SWELLING. IS THE HEAT A CONCERN? THERE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE AN INFECTION AND INCISION IS GOOD.
Avatar n tn I had my right total <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span> 11/10/11 and my left total <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span> 1 1/2 years prior to that. As of today both of my knees continue to throb, shooting pains down my legs, mostly at night. My orthopedic M.D. has done x-rays several times and sees nothing. He claims that it "could" be tendinitis. I currently take 2-5mg. ea. immediate release Oxycodone every 4 hours. THAT is his solution. It does help, but not all the time.
Avatar n tn Other option that can be foreseen with such a bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> would be an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span>. To comment on such a surgery requires in depth analysis of your condition.
Avatar f tn Can this pain indicate an infection in or under the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span>. No redness or swelling of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> - just sharp pain on weight-bearing. It just occurred to me (at 3am) that I may need to consider this in light of the other infection. Just wondering what is the likelihood of infection?
Avatar n tn I'm now 43 years old. I've been waiting 3 years for disc <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span> surgery to be a little more mainstream treatment. I'm interested in hearing anything about this procedure for the C-spine. I'm considered a surgery candidtate for c-5/6 and c-6/7 levels.
Avatar m tn Is it normal to have constant pain after a total <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span>. I'm only taking pain meds at night because I'm scared of getting addicted, and the meds weren't helping that much anyway 10/325 norco. The incision looks fine. My range of motion is great. I had 4 weeks of theraphy and did great. I put ice on the knee but it doesn't help and it doesn't look swollen anyway. its a constant ache in my knee and calf and ankle.

Avatar f tn The pain is below the knee cap on the left and right side and ontop of the knee cap on the right side and on the inside of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> from above the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> to below the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>. For the last week and a half I've been getting sharp pains on the right inside of the knee and above the knee while walking or turning from right to left. When this happens the pain is so bad that I can hardly walk. I've also been getting needle type pain below the knee cap in the center.
Avatar n tn Hello; for the past few months I have been experiencing a pain in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span>, it is just to the outside of the patella. It is a very sharp pain, like an electrical shock. It happens totally at random. It can happen when I am walking, sitting, sleeping, etc. When the pain is not occurring, my knee feels completely normal. When it happens, it usually happens every few seconds or minutes, then stops for several hours. I am not aware of any injury or unusual stress to that area.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.

Avatar n tn 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. The day after her surgery, I was told the CICU night shift nurse forgot to turn my mother during the night and she had internal bleeding in her thigh. The blood pooled around the incision site and the entire back of her thigh was black.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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
Avatar f tn i had total <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knee</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>replacement</span> surgery on january 12th and had the staples removed on the 25th. that was the most painful ordeal i have ever experienced. others i've spoken to said their knees seemed numb and they barely felt a thing. my incision was like a live oopen wound and ever snip and tug was excruciating. my dr. ignored my cries and i believe it was because this is an unusdual happening. has anyone out there had a similar experience and have gotten a medical explanation.
