WHY 1 YEAR AFTER I HAD TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY DO I STILL HAVE PAIN AND BURNING IN MY KNEE. MY DR, SAYS THIS IS OK. SHOULD I GO TO ANOTHER ORTHAPEDIC SURGEON FOR A SECOND OPINION? MY FAMILY DR. SAYS THIS WILL HEAL ON ITS OWN. BUT THE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT IS INTERFERRING WITH MY LIFE. IS IT POSSIBLE THE SURGEON DID SOMETHING WRONG?
My first knee replacement was done, 6 week recovery on crutches, not quite straight away but I think about 10 months later (I could look it up) I had the other one done. A lady in my riding group has had a knee replacement and canters over fields, I have also heard of people cycling. 11 years ago we went on holiday and I can remember hubby pushing me in a wheelchair with rug wrapped around me. I can also do a little dancing (not twisting). I would say go for it sherrie!
I had a total knee replacement February 17, 2012, so I'm almost 7 weeks post op. Please don't get discouraged! I would encourage you to remember to use ice after you exercise and many times during the day. I have had many surgeries, most on my spinal cord or fusions in the back. I had heard that the knee was the worst for recovery, but I found it was a piece of cake. This is NOT usual, but I am thankful.
The swelling is down, but my knee feels like a jammed finger (stiff and painful to move). I know a thing or two about total knee replacement since I had my left knee done in 2008. Last June my OS went back into my knee because of the presence of some floating debris under my knee cap, which I believe was some cement that had broken free, or some pieces of bone. Regardless, prior to removing the debris I couldn't do much of anything without some serious pain in my knee.
my rt knee was replaced with a stryker triathalone knee 11/09. recovery was excellent-great flexibility-no pain until 14 months later. severe burning sensation across the top of the knee when doing steps or going from a sitting to standing position or standing to sitting position. i find i have to use my arms to support the move. Walking is still basically pain free. Flexibility is excellent. I did not fall or twist knee' I do not do high impact excercises.

I had a total knee replacement done over 14 weeks ago and still have quite a bit discomfort. My knee down to my ankle will swell and I get a burning sensation that will last for hours. I have been to the doctors several times and i am being told that this is normal and could last up to 1 year. I had the other knee replaced and didn't have anywhere near the pain I am having with this knee.
I am 53 yrs olds on Feb 19,2010 I had a total knee replacement. Manipulation of the knee occurred on March 15, 2010.

Hi, I have Spinocellerbelar Ataxia (SCA) 1 and am 43 year old male and I am still fairly active. I recently had a total knee replacement, last November 08. I have had some troubles healing and am looking for any info out there on Ataxias and healing from major surgeries, specifically joint replacements. I cannot seem to find any info. SCA is a dominant genetic disease that causes cell death in regions of the brain that control coordination.
On September 7/12 I received a total knee replacement of my left knee. I suffer from severe osteoarthrits and am only 59 years of age. I previously had shoulder replacements in 2008 and 2010 respectively. My right knee is scheduled for replacement on March 25th of this year. My initial recovery from the left knee replacement was excellent. I was walking without a cane within 7 days, and no longer needed any medication stronger than ibupuprofen.
He told me that due to my age (I'm only 46) and having some other health issues (lupus, fibromyalgia, asthma), he would strongly suggest going with a total knee FUSION as opposed to a total knee REPLACEMENT. He said that because I am relatively young (although I don't feel young most days) and have the autimmune problems, there is an increased chance that a knee replacement would not last very long for me and would have to be done at least one more time, if not several times.

Any successful total knee replacement(TKR) surgery will give you a fair range of movement and active lifestyle for a period of 15-20 years and you can get another replacement done if required in the future. There are instances where the successful replacement lasted for more than 20 years. Discuss with an expert orthopedician and take a second opinion and if you have severe arthritis then this is the way to improve your quality of life.

Can a Tens Unit be used on a knee replacement? My Aunt had a full knee replacement done last year, and she's still in pain. I bought one for my back. I was wondering if it could used for her.
would do since they have such a wide range of sizes, others said possibly a custom knee replacement would be needed, and then another said knee fusion or a replacement that would require drilling 5 inches into the tib and fem to install the hardware. Haven't found anyone who has done TKR on a leg with lower limb paralysis using an AFO. That's the kind of surgeon I'm trying to find.
I have to see the surgeon that did my ankle tomorrow. He also did the knee about 28 years ago. My uncle has had three total knee replacements on both knees, six all together. He is always in alot of pain but since they were both last replaced he has been able to lower is daily dose of pain medication by more than double. I know that he was having problems similar to what you are describing as well as the early replacement joints were not as good as what they use today.
I had a total knee replacement on my left knee on June 27th of this year. I've been doing very well with recovery, physical therapy and doing what I want to do again. I just turned 63 this past August. For about a mont or so I've been having quite a bit of swelling in my left ankle and part way up my leg. I asked my PCP about it and he said that swelling was common after surgery.
Long story, loose knee, bone loss, no idea why. Knee removed, spent 20 days without knee to insure no infection, knee replaced 2/20/13, so far so good. I believe I didn't do proper rehab which contributed to problem(s). Used a motion machine at home with PT and completed rehab in record time, big mistake. I'm a golfer and played too soon.. I suggest you really research everything and get several opinions. If you have insurance or financially able to cover it push research to the hilt.

can I give myself my Avonex injection in the leg that I'm going to have a total knee replacement on, the night before surgery?

Do I really have to avoid the gym for my final three weeks before surgery to stay away from other virus possibilities, realllly? My final three weeks of Zumba before a very long rehab after surgery.
