Avatar f tn A bone island is an area of dense bone that is usually found on an xray taken for another reason. This is known as an incidental finding. They are benign, do not cause pain, and are rarely cause for alarm. As far as I know, there is no reason for surgical excision of a bone island.
Avatar f tn I am sitting here minus my right leg from above the knee. I had knee replacement surgery after they refused to fix the problem and caused me to spend 8 years becoming crippled and severely dependent on opiates. I have been told by drs. that cortesone injections speed up the degeneration of the meniscus (cartlidge) and help speed up the bone on bone situation that occurs when the meniscus is gone. One of the symptoms of that is bone spurs developing where it is bone on bone.
159619 tn?1538180937 Knee has healed slowly and is grinding bone on bone with pain, swelling and locking up. Start a series of injections to get some lubricant in there so it can help it heal. Hope this is the ticket.
Avatar n tn I had an implant that failed, it was removed and I had bone grafting, then I had another implant surgery. The bone and gum on the out-facing side of the implant receded and a good portion of the implant is exposed. It was recommended that I have gum surgery prior to having the crown placed on the implant because so much of the implant is exposed - it is very ugly looking. The other option is to have a special crown made that extends up over the implant with a fake gum line.
Avatar n tn What causes a bone cyst in the knee ? I have had an m r I done on my knee and the results came back to say that I have a well defined T2 hyperintensity consistent with a bone cyst in the medullary bone of the distal femur , could you break this down in laymans terms for me please , so I can better understand .
1108194 tn?1378424522 You are correct, they only occur in the ankle, wrist, hand, fingers, foot,and knee. I have not found anything that says they can occur on the collar bone. Uhm maybe you should find a new doctor and get a second opinion. That is what I would do if I were you, especially if you are considering surgery to have it removed.
Avatar n tn In September my 20 year old boyfriend found out he had bone cancer in his knee. The sugery that was preformed involved his whole knee being removed, his tibia was also removed and connected to his femur and then a titaium rod replaced where the tibia had been. The surgery took almost 15 hours to complete and he won't be fully recovered for a year. He is know home from the hospital and getting a fairly depressed with everything that has happened.
405614 tn?1329144114 a good knee brace, the pain finally drove me to visit an orthopedic surgeon. X-rays alone were enough to make it clear that it was time for a new knee. Bone on bone, bone spurs galore, and exam shows ACL is about totally gone again (third time in this knee) I'm 51 years old. So, any words of wisdom? Advice or helpful hints for an easy & successful rehab from this trip to the hospital?
Avatar f tn I was told I had bone on bone in my knee cap...has anyone used synvisc with success for this type of pain. I also was told that I would need to have both my knees replaced, would like to avoid this.
Avatar f tn Just like you I had been told after Arthroscopic surgery on both knees that I was bone on bone and needed TKR on both knees. After lots of pain and meds plus more than one doctor's opinion I decided to go forward. So last August (2012) I had my left knee done. Long story short! The pain I feel today is worse than EVER, encompassing my knee, leg, hip, ankle and now back. I cannot walk, sit down, get up, cook, kneel, lay dpwn on my back without severe pain.
Avatar m tn I had chrondo-orthoscopic on my knee due to an injury. the injury occurred 2 yrs ago. now I'm post surgery since 6/2/2011 - still have pain. still can't run. any one out there w similar circumstance, and are you recovering.. did you recover completely from such a surgery/injury?
Avatar m tn Unfortunately once your joint becomes bone on bone there is little left to do other then a total knee replacement. Cartilage replacement procedure is not a simple task. Procedures and products are being tested every day but to my knowledge the usual "cure" is a knee replacement. There are some "injections" that are used for some ppl that have minimal cartilage damage. They work for some and not for others.
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.
Avatar f tn Went to doctor and exrays showed many bone spurs and a large bone mass growing on the outside of the replaced knee. I am on a anti inflammatory to reduce inflammation which has taken away a great deal of my pain but my only options are a shot in the knee for pain relief and surgery and physical therapy for my patellar which are also not in place. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated for a longer term fix.
452066 tn?1400626877 a partial knee replacement may be needed. The inside of my knee is basically rubbing bone-on-bone, whereas the outside is normal. The catch to all of this is, I cannot have an MRI done due to having an implanted defibrillator and my current orthopedic doc is prolonging a surgery due to an upcoming cardiac ablation... which could be within the next month... or up to 6 or more months. (This ablation can be scheduled at a later date) Should I push the issue?
20826829 tn?1525539210 My surgeon put the hardware clearly through my other bone causing pain everyday for the last 7 years. I was 24 years old. And now I have bone on bone from the grinding to become to look like a 70-80 year old. I'm sick of being in pain. My new doc said he would do a total knee replacement surgery. I don't want to go through this again, recovery sucks. I put off my total knee replacement surgery because I am nervous. Help me in pain.
Avatar f tn t heal eventually without surgery? and 2. Is the bone graft the right way to go or are there other choices? I cant have a rod because they would have to remove/replace my knee replacement, which is below the break, and it was put it only in January, 2009. I have not walked with full weight on my leg since this whole thing started and have not had PT for the past 3 months (doctor's orders).
Avatar f tn An x ray will determine if your problem is arthritis. Remember it doesn't happen to just old people. And it will hurt all the way up to the buttocks if the knee is bone on bone. - A cortizone shot usually brings relief. You are young enough that the doctor may recommend surgery.
Avatar m tn I have had three MRI done on my right Knee the first did see anything wrong but have had pain for years and is getting worse. I had a CT done and they found a bone tumor on my tiba the rad doctor wanted a MRI done on this. I have had a family history of bone cancer is this something that I should be concened about and how should I be treated.
Avatar n tn After about 5 months, my doctor told me the top of my femur was fully healed but the middle had stopped healing and he needed to go in and replace the rod with a bigger one to stimulate bone growth. While in surgery, the doctor also put cadaver bone chips by the break to make things stronger. Things were going okay, but my leg was still very weak (and I busted my butt in PT) when the doctor told me my femur again stopped healing. This leads me to my 3rd surgery, just 4 weeks ago.
1524655 tn?1291420532 According to the surgeon, the damage was not all the way to the bone and is located underneath the knee cap. He said that I do not need surgery and just need to wait for it to go away. It's been two months since the injury. The pain has gotten less indeed. However, after reading articles about articular cartilage, I understand that articular cartilage has limited ability for healing, escpecially if its not all the way to the bone (Grade 4).
559803 tn?1215906890 I am scheduled to get my first injection of Synvisc on July 31st. I had the arthroscopic surgery done on my right knee several months ago and it seems the pain is worse since I had that done. My Dr. said it's bone on bone basically and he doesn't want to do a total knee replacement right now because I'm "too young"...( I am 41 ...nice to have that be called too young..lol ) ..anyway..I just want to know if the injections hurt?
Avatar f tn I have been taking Meloxicam and painkillers. Today I have been to see a specialist with the view to having knee replacement surgery. After looking at my recent x rays he has informed me that I have Avascular Necrosis in both knees. My left knee joint has collapsed and the right one is heading for collapse. Can you tell me if Avascular Necrosis is a form of Arthritis? If so what do you get first Osteoarthritis or Avascular Necrosis?I am 55 years old.
Avatar f tn t doing anything except standing when this happened..she recently had surgery on Nov 30Th to repair it.her orthopedic surgeon said that with the repair he is not optimistic about the knee cap staying in place due to bone shifting and as well as tissue degenerating..is there anyone who has been through this with their children or anyone know if there is a disorder that is associated with this type of injury?
Avatar f tn There is a defect in the cartilage covering the surface of the thigh bone that forms the knee joint and a similar defect in the bone of the lower leg with associated degenerative/ inflammatory changes. There are two small body bodies seen within the joint with increased fluid in the joint space. Hope this helps. Take care!
