Avatar m tn Hello Dear, Although you have not specified the exact type of knee surgery you underwent. It seems that most likely it has been Knee replacement surgery [also known as total knee arthroplasty]. It might be due to loosening of the cement where the implants meet the bone or due to the wear of the polyethylene-bearing surface of a metal-backed tibial platform or a metal-backed patellar componentis a well recognized complication.
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 She is a 68 y/o African American female. January 21st, she had total knee replacement surgery to her right knee. She stayed in the phys rehab center for 8 days post-op, and was fine. The surgeon sent her home with oxycodone for pain management. She only took it 3 days because she developed hives and swollen lips. We attributed this to an oxycodone reaction. However, it is now 3 months later, and the hives have not subsided. They are manageable with prednisone and other antihistamines.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn I saw a post at this site for a person who had similar symptoms from knee replacment surgery. I had a titanium hip joint replacement and about 6 or 7 weeks after surgery I started to have itchiness (all over my body) and hives. It started with a slight itch in the late afternoon and became severed after dinner in the early evening. I have seen an allergist and had blood work done and am waiting for the results and a follow up appointment.
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 n tn Not happy with the Doctor I have been to they told me you can NOT be Allergic to Titanium, just the metal on metal hips that put off a metal Ion waist, this is what ganeteed me? So positive they replaced my rt shoulder with ther same (Titanium) immediate problems....
4397957 tn?1354280922 Has anyone else been a victim of these Metal On Metal Hip replacements failing after only a few years of having a total hip replacement? Had Totall Hip Replacement in 2006 and had to have a total revision done after a few years due to the acetabular component disintigrating and turning into shrapnel inside my body. I now have been diagnosed w/ severe spinal stinosis, nuro-foraminal narrowing, disk bulges..... All happened with in a month of having the revision surgery.
Avatar n tn I brought this up to my doctor at a follow up today and he acted as if I was crazy and tried to say it was probably medicine related, but I have a hard time accepting that since this happened only to the leg the knee replacement was on and at the exact time of the knee replacement. Thank you for any comment.
Avatar f tn I am a 30 year old female with severe arthiritis in my right knee. I have been dealing with this situation for over 10 years now. At this point, I have about 40 degrees of movement in my knee and no cartilage left. Was temporarily diagnosed with Pigmented Villanodular Synovitits, though this was not validated with Pathology reports from my first two surgeries, so we are working with Arthiritis as my diagnosis.
Avatar n tn m looking at a surgery to take out replacement and put in cement with antibiotics, then 6 weeks later a total knee replacement. If I still have blood pooling in knee after that I don't know how I will take it! Pain increasing. What happened to you Jan and Linde*?
Avatar f tn I had total knee replacement Oct. 27, 2010 and have not been pain free. It is really starting to depress me. I have a popping and pulling feeling in my knee that causes excessive pain. My doctor, who I never get to see, I see a physicans assisstant just put me in a knee brace and told me to take over the counter pain meds. She said I need to have a bone scan but can't do that until a hot spot on my knee goes away. I just want this fixed.
Avatar f tn I have arthritis through out my body. 15 months ago I had total knee replacement, now I have pain there. There is a sore spot on either side of the knee, sometimes the pain wakes me. My ortho did x-rays last wk and cannot find any reason for the pain. Have any of you had this same experience?

Avatar n tn However, when I showed my right knee last month this year I was told that I need full knee replacement. The surgeon recommended Otisknee replacement procedure. Is it possible that my right knee can deteriorate in onr year to have full replacemnt as opposed to partial. What are the reports on Otisknee replacement procedure. What are the pros & cons of partial replacement versus full replacement.
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.

I am very sick from this and need help quick! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/227286'>On-going Pain after Knee replacement surgery</a>.
Avatar f tn I had been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in the left knee and beginning in the right knee four years ago. I was told that I was bone on bone in the left knee. Since I was only 50 years old the doctor said that I was too young for surgery. Four years later, 1 less thyroid, additional weight, I have been told I am too fat and I need to get my BMI down before they would consider.
