Avatar m tn My next option is probably a knee replacement. Any suggestion on the best replacement in terms of movement and durability for an very active skier? I have heared that Smith and Nephew makes a new ACL Sparing Unit used in Europe. Is it available in the US and by whom? Your input would be much appreciated.
Avatar n tn My mom is going to have bilateral knee replacement surgery in India. From the conversation with my parents, what I figured, the doctor is going to use oxinium Knee replacement implant (which is from Smith and nephew). From another source, I was suggested to use Johnson and Johnson knee implant. Which one is best and what should I know before going for knee replacement implant? What could be the implant cost per knee implant (for one leg)? Any pros and cons?

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.
98474 tn?1240108874 Am home from the hospital day surgery and my knee is feeling so much better even with the surgery pain. He cleaned it up and shaved off the torm meniscul. I have grade three arthritis in the knee joint and will eventually need replacement but am hoping this buys me at least a couple of years but that might be wishful thinking. This surgery is a peace of cake next to my two hip replacements. No big deal! Talked to the same anethesiologist as I had for my hip surgery last Aug.

Avatar f tn My question is can this shortness of breath and arrythmia on sleeping and waking, and sometimes the attacks of dreadful pain be caused by something other than my heart? Also Im nervous to have knee replacement surgery, involving a long anethesetic, with all this going on, and no trusted physician, plus the antibiotocs and other drugs ill have to take after, that are dangerous for QT. very worrying!

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.

Her bloody towels were a testament to the blood loss. She has even more health issues too.

The key is being responsible..
Avatar n tn I feel better knowing you can relate and maybe we can help each other. I had a back injury years ago, and partial knee replacement over a year ago. Well, my knee still hurts and my doctor now says I need a total knee replacement. And my back, which was doing great for years has started hurting in the last 2 months, as bad or worse than my knee. I have so many duties to fulfill every day, especially after my husband has foot surgery next Wednesday.
1700643 tn?1464850282 My back is as bad as it was n07when I first got hurt.Hubbys knee went n2the steering column right underneath is all broke.E.R.we went of course they give me script of45-10mg tabs+30soma(told me2c my Dr2check.up&if I couldn't c him soon I can get a refill).I said to the doctor who I assumed heard when I told the nurse I have a script from the dentist&that info as well as"I wrote n my info but Ill tell u I took&eventually abused lortab".Couldn't b clearer I thought photos.
Avatar n tn I am in constant pain and my leg has red spots on the aria of the knee replacement and is always wormer then the other leg. Now I have developed a severe allergy in my sinus, with the tubes plug and water on one ear. No one can tell me what I am allergic to. I read many people having the idea of allergies to titanium and I have read that the medical community say it not possible. The last two night I have had a temperature of 101, that comes and goes.
Avatar n tn I have taken one pill 4-5 times weekly. In September of this year, I had a total knee replacement. Since that time I have taken first percocet, and then lortab for pain. I currently have to take one lortab-10 almost daily. On very bad days I have to take two pills. I am concerned about becoming addicted not due to the amount of medication that I have to take, but due to the amount of time that I have been taking them.
Avatar n tn I have an appointment today with my doc and he wants me back on it.But my knee replacement surgery will be coming up next week unless I chicken out.So I will need some pain relief. Well thanks for the thought this morning.I need all the thoughts and prayers I can get.

Avatar n tn 90% of the time I get the pain which is about 4 inches above my knee on the inside of the thigh at night and it is very painful and long lasting. During the day I have times when it feels like someone has driven a knife in me but it only lasts a few seconds. I have a spot where you can press and it hurts alot but otherwise it doesn't affect my daily life. I am very athletic and have not stopped doing anything but this is really affecting my sleep. If anyone learns anything, please post.
Avatar n tn Thanks for your support
Avatar n tn is multiple trauma w/ injuries also involving the knee. I do believe that knee surgeries are rough. I had arthroscopic knee surg. last year, and the doc said this will buy me a couple of years, and I too may be facing a knee replacement,not to mention the hip replacement also. Anyway, I was given Oxycontin after a long 8 year battle to find or receive pain relief of any sort.
Avatar n tn Yes... I am from the Philly area... South Jersey to be exact and he is well known. I have known of him for some years. In fact my daugher went to school with his son, they lived in our neighborhood, and his niece was my daugher's drug buddy... some small world isn't it ?? I live in Florida now. Anyway, I just posted in a thread below here on opiate withdrawl and depression and he is the doctor who said "no mood enhancers for addicts" to my friend's nephew... HOWEVER...
Avatar n tn You are taking the steps needed to recover and hopefully you will be able to rebuild the trust necessary for you to continue your relationship with your nephew. By the way, has your sister considered the damage she is doing to her son by denying him his relationship with someone who is obviously very important in his life?? Furthermore, why can't you be with him in a setting where you are not alone with him (which to me is still ridiculous, it's not as if you got caught murdering someone!!).
