Knee replacement jogging

Common Questions and Answers about Knee replacement jogging


Avatar m tn I agree that there are multiple causes of knee and back pain. I will offer what I have learned about knee and back pain. Degenerative diseases like Degenerative Disc Disease of the back and Degenerative Joint Disease can lead to arthritis. Arthritis is an inflamation and degeneration is a tearing down so to speak of parts of a joint, When the lining of the knee joint becomes inflamed it is sinovitis and this can become an arthritic joint..
Avatar f tn 1 week later whilst crossing the road my knee popped like and elastic band twanging and i experienced a hot pain in the BACK of the knee area i was rendered lame as i couldnt put any pressure on my leg at all I was refered to an surgeon whom operated on my left knee (cleaning it out of debris) he said i had severe arthritis which would only get worse and that i needed a knee replacement now the problem has again reared its ugly head and affected my right knee this pain is the same but i am now
Avatar n tn Other option that can be foreseen with such a bad knee would be an knee replacement. To comment on such a surgery requires in depth analysis of your condition.
Avatar n tn I'm now 43 years old. I've been waiting 3 years for disc replacement 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 I started having something very similar a few weeks ago; only difference is my pain is right on the knee cap. I hit my knee on something and it hurt pretty bad for about 5-10 seconds and then I didn't have any pain at all until 3 days later in the middle of the night. It was as if I had hit my knee again and it keeps happening since then. The pain is very severe. It has happened 5-6 times in the last 3 weeks, about 10-15 sec. long, always in the middle of the night.
Avatar n tn I am 53 year old female and I have started jogging for 15 minutes each time. m problem is my knee's and chins are so painful after my jog that it takes hours before the pain subside's please could anyone help as I would love to keep running?
Avatar n tn I have heard great progress in hip and knee surgery, even athletes running and jogging again. But are there any improvements in shoulder replacement. I have heard nightmare stores of minimal usage after replacement surgery. 18 months ago I had shoulder surgery to clean up my shoulder joint (arthritis and old damage). He wanted to replace the shoulder at that time. I asked if I could continue to lift weights and work after surgery.
Avatar n tn I have not been able to sustain physical activities to keep weight off while being in A-Fib. Also, I have a bad knee that prevents me from doing any type of running, very painful. What activities (limited income) can be done to promote weight loss? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I read your note to josh 344 and I think that you may have helped me with my knee pain. Since total knee replacement of left knee 2 and a half years ago I have suffered chroniv knee pain worse than before surgery also not being able to flex more than 65 as the knee becomes so tight and the pain extremley bad. On x-ray shows a slighyly tilted knee cap with some bone on metal.
Avatar n tn I have worn out cartiledge in left knee and was going to have an Oxford partial knee replacement, when something told me to get a second opinion. Great doctor gave me a cortisone shot that lasted seven weeks (zero pain) and yesterday I had my first Synvisc shot (9 am). Shot hurt a little (3 or 4) at first, then nothing until about 5pm when I put an ice pack and took an Aleve. Pain went completely away and had a good nights sleep. Little pain today (a 2) after working a normal day.

Avatar m tn I had partial knee replacement in both knees at the end of June. All was going well until 2 months into rehab, I was in an auto accident. Apparently in the accident, I hit my left knee and injured or tore the Patellar tendon. I have a burning, stabbing pain below my knee cap that has progressively worsened. My doc said to tough it out, as there is no broken bones, nor apparent problem with the implant. Its been 2 months since the accident and am not getting better.
Avatar n tn Now 20 years later I need to have knee replacement and the dr says the rod comes down so low it will interfere with the new knee and he will have to back the rod out of the femur in order to replace the knee. I am scared and I am also in a great deal of pain with the knee. I want so badly to resume a normal life. I have been dealing with this accident for 40 years. Does the bone grow to the titanium rod? He seems to think he can remove the three screws and back out the rod?
Avatar n tn I had a unicompartment knee replacement on Oct 17, 2006. I am a Home Health Nurse I fell in a patient's bathroom on June 8 '07. After several months almost a year since I was injuried the MD who did the replacement - I was pain free at 7 weeks with -5 degree to 180 degree ROM - told me at the last visit to "suck it up" regarding the severe pain.
Avatar f tn The doctor suggested ankle replacement surgery, but the recovery time is too long right now. Besides the fact that we don't have health insurance and would be paying 100% ourselves, he would not be able to get 2 to 3 months off from work. The doctor then suggested the Synvisc. So my question is, has anyone here tried it? What has your experience been? Sorry if this so long. I look forward to hearing from someone. Thank You!
Avatar n tn my leg with my hand under my knee. I can trace it back to when I had meniscus surgery and for months didn't bend my knee to lift my leg from the floor onto the couch when sitting. I let my groin muscles do all the lifting and rotating of the leg. It was then the pain started. What I think it is now is the formation of scar tissue from that injury. I have tried to stretch and it feels better.
Avatar n tn I have always had problems with pain in both legs, mostly the left that radiates from my knee down, knee up,or from my hip all the way down..its so bad I have to take vicodin or at least 4 asprin to get rid of the pain. So, I wonder if its all associated. I heard of people that have back problems having issues with their legs or arms like numbness, tingling and pain.
Avatar f tn The doctors seem to think that I have begun feeling the effects of arthritis and are talking eventual hip replacement as soon as 10 years from now. Is there anyone to whom this has happened? If so, how have you gone about physically making the best of it? What courses of action have you taken (cortisone, arthroscopic surgery, etc?) I just want some guidance from someone who has been through it, not a doctor telling me what "could" happen. Thanks.

401095 tn?1351395370 My mother had a botched total knee replacement 5 years ago. She takes 3 Vicopforen (7.5) per day. For 5 years. She started at 2 per day but added the mid-day pill as her tolerance grew. For 5 years she has not over taken, never ran out etc. However she also worries about getting to the pharmacy on time and making sure the doc calls in the refill. She does not consider herself an addict but knows she is physically dependent.
Avatar n tn The brain sends out a signal to the affected part of the body(her knee) but does not get a return signal due to a neurological problem. The brain keeps increasing the signal strength to the point of intractible pain. Apparently, a lot of physicians believe this condition is "all in the head". Know what I mean? J.B.
Avatar m tn It's a bit like being told you have damaged knee joints and you need to rest for several weeks, but you go jogging every night. Personally I believe bypass surgery will eventually become a thing of the past. I also believe stenting of the coronary arteries will too. For years now they have been researching into growing artificial artery frames which will withstand the pressure of blood inside them. They are coated with stem cells and these grow a brand new artery.
Avatar f tn Just returned home from having outpatient joint replacement on my right big toe. No pain, no crutches, just the shoe. Laying here applying ice packs now with little swelling. I have a follow-up visit to my Doctor on Thurday, so I'll keep you posted.
Avatar n tn Exercises include stretching, pushups, crunches, knee bends, calf raises, curls and lat raises. Usually just 1 set of as many as I can do of each. It sounds like a lot but other than the walking it only takes 15-20 minutes before breakfast and after the initial first 3 months it became a piece of cake. My diet is still the same except I now get my protein from egg-beaters, yogurt and fish. I treat myself to a ½ lb steak about every 4 months.
Avatar n tn Numbness and burning and itchy. It started out the size of a quarter just above my knee cap during my last pregnancy. Docs said it would go away after I delivered because most likely a nerve was being pressed on...Needless to say it did not go away, and has only been progressivley getting worse. It now starts just above the knee cap and covers almost the whole upper thigh in numbness or anything on the back of my leg.
Avatar n tn Generally, above 5 cm replacement is indicated because that is generally when the risk of rupture really increases. Before that the risk of the surgery is considered greater then the risk of rupture.
Avatar n tn I had a knee injury and need a knee replacement I get pins and needles in that knee a lot at night but now this itching....and on both legs. I have been taking Morphine sulphate for about 8 months for the pain. I feel stupid for asking but do you think Morphine sulfate has sulphate in it? lol now what?
Avatar n tn It happens about 2x a day, lasts a few seconds and it has moved around my body. Started in the left wrist, went to the left knee, then ankle, and the over to the right knee. Now it's been happening behind my right thigh for about 2 weeks. Very strange.
Avatar n tn Boxing is a good alternative to arm and shoulder workouts. Swim or bike instead of jogging. You get the idea. Watch what you eat, get rid of packaged processed foods and eat whole foods. Consider juicing. Get at least 20 minutes of sunshine without sunscreen each day. If you are worried about cancer, stay in the shade, go out in the early mornings or late in the day when the sun isn't so strong.
