knee

Avatar f tn Hi I hav3 had five lt knee replacement . After my first one my knee was just like yours,,, no one could or wanted to help me. The first surgeon wanted me to do a Mua. I can’t believe he didn’t see it for what it was... I was in pain, chair bound and miserable. I found a dr who beil3ved in me. I believe you. This dr told me that 50 of the aspirations do not show infections. He and my pcp could see it was infected. Your leg is infected. Antibioditics will not help as a tried oral ones..
Avatar f tn So he came up with the diagnoses of skin lupus due to blood work. My knee was still swollen at a year post surgery so I scheduled an appointment with my knee surgeon. My knee surgeon comes up with the diagnoses that I am have a reaction to the graft used in my knee. He took some fluid from my knee and put me on some anti-inflammatory medication. The anti-inflammatory medication did help some but the swelling never went completely down.
Avatar n tn Why am I having numbness and pain in my foot after total knee replacement? It really hurts.....one physician is giving me Lyrica. Any info on this will be appreciated.
Avatar n tn Pain in the knee after total knee replacement can occur due to knee infection or loosening, resurfaced patella, with effusion in the joint occuring due to worn out polyethylene components, due to damage to the vessels and nerves around the knee etc. In case of infection antibiotics would help. In case of worn out polyethylene components may be reoperation could be considered. Also you mentioned that a cyst is present in the knee area, this could have been the cause of pain in the knee.
Avatar f tn I had a osteotomy on my right knee which was a total disaster and had to have a total knee replacement later. I need total knee replacement on my left knee. I am so scared to get it because of what I went through with my right leg. With tka's what is the % of surgeries that turn out normal? I know I have to have the P.T. for about 6 weeks and all that but boy it's a painfull surgery and what type of pain medication would you think would be sufficent?
Avatar f tn Ok, after reading all the negative comments about knee replacement on this site, I have just about decided not to have the surgery done. Is there anyone out there that has had success in this and would like to share? I need some positive feedback, please.
Avatar f tn There are a good many reasons for not doing both at the same time, the least of which is the trauma to your body! Knee replacement is a massive undertaking and is known to be one of, if not THE, most painful surgeries anyone can undergo. The people around you are either trying to be helpful in their own bumbling way or else they are insensitive bores and you should tell them that.......in your nice, indoor voice naturally.
Avatar m tn I had partial knee replacement 2.5 months ago. While the pain from the arthritis is mainly gone I am experiencing much tightness and numbness in the knee. Combined with limited strength in my quadricep I have a much difficulty climbing any steps. I am working with a physical therapists but still am frustrated about the limited success. Any thoughts about this. The surgeon looked at the knee through xrays and felt things are going fine.
255738 tn?1230233362 The dr said he is a good candidate for partial knee replacement. I was wondering if any of you nice folks have undergone partial knee replacement and how it has worked out for you?? Would love to hear from you on this. Thanks.
Avatar f tn t run, dance, our even walk without it giving out my dr wants me to get a knee replacement.
Avatar n tn I had "Total knee replacement" 2 months ago. I have had "pain in my leg" since I had the " and the doctor says there is nothing wrong. The pain goes "down my calf, behind my knee and a little above my knee." Once in awhile it gets slightly red and warm. Pain killers really don;t do anything for this. I don't know what to do. I had no pain before the surgery except for the knee.
Avatar m tn You can have arthritis at young age and when the joint cartilage is lost then you would need total knee replacement. Take care!
Avatar f tn This would be a difficult question to answer without the relevant clinical details. A knee replacement is not preferred in young patients as the life of a knee replacement around 10-20 years (the newer devices last longer than the older ones). Though knee replacements are usually successful and help in regaining movements around the joint conservative management is preferred due to the risk associated with the replacement surgery and a possible re-replacement surgery.
Avatar f tn knee pain. I have profound swelling in my leg below my knee replacement that I had done in 2012. I cannot wear socks because they cause me pain. Can you tell me what is wrong?
Avatar n tn Has anyone had a total knee fusion before having knee replacement. I am a 31 year old female who had a total knee fusion. After a year and half of not having full use of my leg and severe hip pain due to all my weight shifting on one side because I can not bend my leg it has now caused severe pain in my hip and both legs and lower back.
Avatar m tn My dad has gone through multiple surgeries for Knee replacement because of infection and finally they removed the implant and just kept the cement with antibiotic to rule out the infection in Knee. After first revision of the knee replacement (In January 2016), his urine shows high number of pus cell (400-500 ).
Avatar f tn Is someone willing to comment on their experience with the MAKI partial knee replacement surgery? I'm having knee pain a year following partial medial meniscus surgery a year ago & looking at all options. My knee soreness has never really gone away. I'm a 58 yr old runner who used to be very active and am very frustrated with my treatment so far. My Ortho is suggesting Synvisc injections, but I'm looking for a more durable outcome. Thanks!
Avatar m tn However, if your quality of life is poor and all other options have been exhausted. Knee replacement can be extremely effective. Whether, total knee, partial knee, or patellafemoral replacement is best can only be determined ny examining you and reviewing your xrays.
6473455 tn?1381627629 I am an active 66 year old male and have a dilemma in that I need knee replacement surgery but recently found that I have an 11mm wide necked saccular aneurysm in my left carotid artery (during a routine MRI). An eminent Australian neuro-surgeon has recommended that I have coiling of the aneurysm and stenting to hold the coil in place, to deal with this.
Avatar f tn Please let me know what your doctor says- I think your first priorities are to make sure there is no infection and nothing gone wrong with the knee replacement. Then trying to come up with a good pain management plan, exercise and diet regime are next, so you won't be hurting your body with too much ibuprofen, so your leg will have the best mobility you can attain, and so you won't be driven nuts with those unwanted additional pounds!
2194148 tn?1397323475 I had a knee replacement in 2012, and it went really well. I was the first one of the group that was up and running! Then I got a bad infection and it was so bad I was giving myself IV therapy at home for months. They couldn't isolate the infection, so finally, after 4 more surgeries, they did a biopsy and found that the bacteria that was causing my knee infection is ONLY SUPPOSED TO LIVE IN MY STOMACH! Even the doctor that performed the biopsy was confused.
Avatar n tn My mom recently had knee replacement on 6/8/19. (She had both hip replacement in 2010 previously)Can she have MR and tomography? She started having severe hip(both) aches after her right knee surgery. Especially when she moves or walks, she says her both bottoms(where she sits), sometimes hips are hurting so much. Does she need to have MRI or tomography and can she use MRI or tomography with her replacements?
Avatar f tn I had a total left knee replacement 2 1/2 months ago. For the last 3 wks my knee is sswollen, warm to touch, is swelled down into my ankle and hurts constantly. If my puppy lays against the outside of my thigh,its excruciating pain all the way down. Even behind the knee is swollen and warm to the touch. The pain is also down my shin bone. Is there a possibility of a blood clot this long after surgery? Even my calf hurts. I don't get Any Sleep and even my toes hurt to move them.
