Knee surgery side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Knee surgery side effects


Avatar f tn I needed to be pre-medicated with benadryl and prednisone due to a reaction i had shortly after my first taxitier treatment. Does my body reacting adversely to the chemo in the first place cause more severe side effects? I'm curious to know because i have had lumbar pain and knee pain ever since my chemotherapy.
Avatar f tn The doctor injected me in my right knee joint and I thought I would die from the pain. The left knee joint was not as painful. After I felf pain relief. However, when I awoke yesterday both my knees where the injection was given , as I bent my knee, felt crackly. The right knee now "catches" as I walk-almost like something got dislodged. What is going on? I will see my doctor Monday cause he was not in. I am afraid to get the other injections now.
Avatar f tn and found a Mayo Clinic article which stated that not only Prevacid, but Prilosec, and the other PPI drugs could in certain people cause severe colitis lasting for weeks. Different people have different side effects, some people have no side effects to the the same drug.
Avatar n tn Have been researching things about positions I have to be in. Almost impossible seeing I just had knee surgery, which I have trouble bending,restless leg syndrom which drives me nuts, can't lay on my stomach due to a bad veterbrae and constant back pain, fybromyalgia,neck and shoulder pains from surgery to both, also it's the second surgery to the same knee within an 8 month period which both were for total peplacement. First one was unsucessful.
Avatar n tn The treatment requires close medical supervision by a dermatologist because the drug has many known side effects (many of which can be severe). About 25% of patients may relapse after one treatment. In those cases, a second treatment for another 4-6 months may be indicated to obtain desired results.
Avatar f tn He was on top of transplant list but all 3 livers that became available were unacceptable. Treatment side effects are nothing compared to end stage liver disease so I am very motivated to get through this for my son and myself. I was able to work FT and care for an aging parent in 2005. She passed away in January of this year. I will miss her support but unfortunately will have more free time.
Avatar m tn I was prescribed Effient which seemed to make my heart race sonI stopped it in Oct. I had knee surgery and found out in process that withou Effient I am at risk for a clot and heart attack. I am ready to go back on it but I want my knee surgery to heal. Will the Effient slow the healing process on the knee?
Avatar n tn I am curious, those of you who have had surgery for CM1 what are some of the side effects you are or have dealt with? My Neurologist was telling me about one patient who after surgery anytime she hits a bump in the road she becomes disoriented. So I am just trying to find out what other side effects there are. Thank you all for you help!
Avatar n tn How long after taking gabapentin will the side effects last. I have hair loss. I stopped taking gabapentin about four or five months ago.
Avatar n tn Not allergic but he just hated the side effects. He had open heart surgery where they actually opened his chest to fix one of the valves. He only had Extra Strength Tylenol. I was pretty stunned. But truthfully, when we went to see him, he didn't look even uncomfortable.
378273 tn?1262097621 it makes my knee and hip joints hurt some plus makes me tired but doesnt have quite as bad of side effects as the amioderone.. I ride and exercise bike for about 2 hours a day with pretty good resistance and I have it in my head that it helps my heart rhythm to stay better...dunno...
Avatar f tn I am 26 years old and I am going in for my second knee surgery due to multiple patella dislocations. My first surgery was similar to a lateral release. Now my surgeon is going to try something more extensive. My question is after my first surgery I was given hydrocodone 10mg/325, which didn't do a whole lot. Now right now before my surgery my surgeon prescribed me percocet 5/325, which doesn't do anything, I have to take 2 (so it amounts to 10/325 to feel relief).
Avatar f tn The side effects I had from the steroids was hot flashes, facial flushing, increased night sweats and weight gain. I sweat a lot normally. I'm on Wellbutrin and it's one of the side effects but while I was getting the injections it was horrible. I'd sweat for no reason just sitting in my office chair. My night sweats got 10x worse. Everything has finally calmed down now 2 months after my last injection. I gained 10lbs in a month and I'm still trying to get rid of it.6 to go.
Avatar n tn t want to get the surgery and not be able to play again. What is your opinion? should i get the surgery or not, what are the side effects? Help Please!!
Avatar m tn t help either but I am getting some small relief from nasal strips. The doctor who performed the surgery said there was absolutely no danger of any problems after surgery. I never gave this any thought but I never had a cold since the surgery and my nose is always dry .Instead of a runny nose I would always get bronchitus when cold symptoms appeared. I also developed tinnitus about 10 years ago.
Avatar f tn I've found that Aggrenox seems to work without side effects. It's primarily baby aspirin, but also contains a drug that prevents platelets from sticking together. I've taken it twice a day since my stroke, and it appears to work, but who ever knows?
Avatar m tn Hi. Some questions have you taken oxycodone previously? The nausea and headaches could be due to the amount of oxycodone you are taking, specifically if you have not been on a doseage this high... Have you told your dr you are experiencing these side effects, if you don't have anti nausea medication then it would be beneficial to ask for something to be prescribed. Also are you taking the oxycodone when required or regularly?
Avatar f tn My wife a few hours after knee replacement surgery which was otherwise uncomplicated suffered significant naseau and threw up several times folowed by low temperature in the 94 range.
Avatar f tn s more comfortable giving me one larger injection than giving me three injections over the course of three weeks. Do you agree with this and are there any increased side effects that could happen doing it this way? 3) If the Euflexxa injection works to reduce my pain and mobility issues, are there any other joints that this injection can be used in - i.e., my shoulder, ankle, etc.? Thank you for any and all advice/information you can provide.
