Knee replacement nerve block

Common Questions and Answers about Knee replacement nerve block


Avatar f tn I dislocated my knee while instructing a class and did major damage and ended up having a knee replacement in December 2013. Upon waking up in recovery I was given a femoral nerve block for pain. While they were inserting the nerve block I experienced extreme pain that felt like I was being shocked repeatedly in my knee for about 10seconds which caused me to scream like I have never before. That was 10 weeks ago and I am having major problems since.
Avatar n tn I'm having total knee replacement surgery soon. I can't have a nerve block due to my spine. I'll have general Anesthesia, but was told the pain will be increased since I can't have the block. I'm concerned about managing pain afterward since I have Barrett's. Has anyone had knee or hip surgery and have Barrett's? What type of pain medication did you have?
Avatar m tn it seems to me to be some kind of nerve damage related to either the tourniquet or the femoral nerve block. . . I also have EXTREME sensitivity on my middle to outer thigh. . . .

Avatar m tn t function on my job without the percoset and am wondering whether a nerve block or total knee replacement is an option?
874521 tn?1424116797 A Medial Nerve Block is what is referred to as a Facet Injection. I copied this information on it when I thought I was going to have one. Also, as I posted on your other post, you probably WILL NOT be able to take Oxycontin on the day of this procedure because of the time release element of the medication. Please check with you doctor on that.
Avatar f tn My knee was very damaged and I had many surgeries prior to total knee replacement had Donated bone placed in the knee many years before this procedure. I am in Ted hose and have been doing my exercises they did a nerve block during surgery and I can tell that helped me a lot it hurts under my knee on the right side of knee and my thigh hurts very bad. Have a lot of fluid on top of knee not red or leaking I have a lot of heat coming from the knee and ice helps a lot.
Avatar f tn I spoke with the Pain Clinic yesterday. The doctor thinks that I just "over did" it after the nerve block last week. I guess he didn't take into account that I'd done absolutely nothing between the numbing wearing off and the pain starting. I went to physical therapy last night, the therapist did a few manual tests and said that the ankle pain is from "neural tension", not muscular or tendon related.
Avatar n tn I called my orthopedic doctor and he referred me to a specialist that he had worked with, that doctor sent me to pain mangement and they started to do nerve blocks through my back to my knee, the nerve blocks helped block the pain which allowed me to walk properly and after about two months I was doing great and haven't had a problem since and that was two years ago, as the meniscus will heal itself if given the opportunity. Best of luck to you and I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn If they gave you a femoral nerve block during surgery, there may have been some damage done to the nerve itself. Pain in the buttock area also would indicate to me sciatic nerve damage as well. What are you doing for the pain as of now? If acquiring pain medication is out of the question, i would suggest a more holistic approach: massage therapy, Range of Motion exercises (don't strain), warm or cool compresses (whichever you find more relieving).
Avatar n tn Cluneal nerve entrapment syndrome isn't often under appreciated and under diagnosed condition. The site of entrapment is at the upper aspect of the iliac crest above the buttock, approximately 8 cm from the middle of the spine. I am not quite sure what was targeted with the injection you had, but it certainly does not cluneal nerve.
Avatar f tn Hi i have had total knee replacement, and belive all was good ,was walking very quick after severe pain for five weeks . But now when laying in bed at night get sharpe pains shoot through my thigh and knee, like a electric shock or cramp, does anybody else get this ??
Avatar f tn I had total knee replacement in April of 2007 and continue to have a nagging pain in the knee area as well as it stays slightly swollen all the time. The pain is a burning and stinging sensation and is made worse when I try to walk any length of time. Therefore, I don't get much exercise. The pain subsides with rest at night but when arisinig in the morning it's back and still swollen. Due to the swelling the knee doesn't bend as far as it should.
655727 tn?1283296048 My Dr recommended that I have a total knee replacement for my left knee and I have a question I am a bit too embarrassed to ask him and I am hoping you answer it for me. I am a 42 yr old woman and I enjoy “being on top” when I have sex, will I be able to kneel on the bed without causing damage once my knee is replaced? Thank you so much in advance.
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 n tn I recently learned that during my right knee replacement, the surgeon severed a nerve in the back of my knee near the right side. After 4 years of pain, drugs and almost loosing my job, I saw a new pain doctor who sent me for a 3D sonogram which is how I discovered this. Can this nerve be repaired?
Avatar f tn I also have medial knee pain and am having a nerve block just below the knee in a few weeks.
Avatar f tn My Dad wants to avoid the joint replacement surgery and so he went for the Nerve Block treatment. I have seen his x-ray and the AVN looks pretty bad. He got the first injection yesterday and says he has been feeling better and said that he could walk in the morning but limps otherwise. I can literally hear his bones crack as he walks, he needs my support for walking. But he says he feels better and it has been just around 28 hours from the first injection.
Avatar n tn Why am I having numbness and pain in my foot after total knee replacement? It really physician is giving me Lyrica. Any info on this will be appreciated.
Avatar f tn Oh - also wanted to mention, in additional to general anesthesia, I had a nerve block done the morning of surgery, which not only permitted them to use less of the general anesthesia, but it also helped with post op pain - yes, I still had a good deal of pain, but at least I was still numb when I first woke up so I wasn't waking up in agony.
Avatar m tn The good news is that the doctors seem to have found a bone growth which is pushing on the peroneal nerve . A nerve block is scheduled to further confirm that hypothesis. The bad news is that the knee orthopedic surgeon says that he is nervous about operating in the popliteal cavity with its mess of nerves and blood vessels. He says that I should go see one of his associates who is a cancer orthopedic specialist who has operated more often in that challenging area of the knee.
