Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan knee replacement


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 n tn I took this as meaning there is an issue with the hardware on my knee replacement which has cause scare tissue. What else are they trying to say? In the impressions from the nuclear med physician it states that "Status post total right knee arthroplasty hardware replacement, no abnormal foci of radiotracer activity nor overlying hyperemia to suggest associated acute process, such as loosening or infection." 2.
98474 tn?1240105274 loosening of the stem of my hip replacement on the same side as my knee pain. I am wondering if this could cause the knee to degenerate faster? What happens if they remove the menicus in an older person like me? I have read somthing about arthritis being worse after that surgery. Why is it your feeling that repairing it would not work very well?
Avatar f tn I had a knee replacement a year ago and am having pain. I was curious . . . how did they know the glue was deteriorating? Did they do an MRI? I just had and MRI and have been told it could be "mild loosening, bone stress reaction, or stress response". My Dr.'s onlt response was, if it's bad enough redo the knee replacement surgery. How long ago was your replacement surgery?
Avatar m tn i had a arthroscopy on my knee in august,just been informed by the surgeon that i have to have a full knee replacement in december.i was hit down by a car august 2008,could this have brought this on,have not been able to work,scaffolding,getting very depressed.thanks for replying.
452066 tn?1400626877 MRI is not necessary to make the decision for Partial Knee Replacement. You had arthroscopic surgery one year ago. At that time the surgeon assesed the status of the lateral compartment and your ACL, two important factors in deciding whether you are a good candidate for partial versus total knee surgery. Other factors include age, weight, activity level, lifestyle, and of course, degree of symptoms and limitations.
6473455 tn?1381627629 I am an active 66 year old male and have a dilemma in that I need knee replacement surgery but recently found that I have an 11mm wide necked saccular aneurysm in my left carotid artery (during a routine MRI). An eminent Australian neuro-surgeon has recommended that I have coiling of the aneurysm and stenting to hold the coil in place, to deal with this.
Avatar n tn Well, this would depend on the severity of the condition, though these are likely to degrade with time and a knee replacement might be required at some point in the future. It would be best to discuss the prognosis and the management plan in detail with your treating orthopedician. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar m tn Instead of the workers comp panel doctor who operated on me. My doctor ordered an MRI of the knee in January. Something the other doctor never did. It revealed the following concerns. Chondromalacia Patella, and mucoid degeneration of the posterior horn of my medial meniscus. I also have a small Baker`s cyst, with small joint effusion. He gave me a cortisone injection on my last visit. And prescribed 6 weeks of physical therapy for me. I still have the same problems.
Avatar n tn I had "Total knee replacement" 2 months ago. I have had "pain in my leg" since I had the " and the doctor says there is nothing wrong. The pain goes "down my calf, behind my knee and a little above my knee." Once in awhile it gets slightly red and warm. Pain killers really don;t do anything for this. I don't know what to do. I had no pain before the surgery except for the knee.
Avatar n tn I had surgery 10/5/14 to medial meniscus and patella scraped it shows my patella is at 3 range and was told that if it reaches 4 I may need full knee replacement. The doctor said my MRI after my fall showed nothing. Yet the pictures of my surgery showed a lot of loose frayed cartilage and fraying meniscus that was removed. I went back to work at two mouths post op and my knee is killing me. it pops, grinds, and sharp pains, and aching still have swelling.
Avatar m tn So instead he wants to preform a microfracture and if it fails move onto knee replacement. He also feels I am not a canidate for any cartilage repair surgery because of the kissing lesions. I feel I have more damage on the tibia too because I have lots of pain below my knee cap and in my lower joint line behind my knee.
Avatar f tn would do since they have such a wide range of sizes, others said possibly a custom knee replacement would be needed, and then another said knee fusion or a replacement that would require drilling 5 inches into the tib and fem to install the hardware. Haven't found anyone who has done TKR on a leg with lower limb paralysis using an AFO. That's the kind of surgeon I'm trying to find.
Avatar f tn t run, dance, our even walk without it giving out my dr wants me to get a knee replacement.

Avatar f tn This would be a difficult question to answer without the relevant clinical details. A knee replacement is not preferred in young patients as the life of a knee replacement around 10-20 years (the newer devices last longer than the older ones). Though knee replacements are usually successful and help in regaining movements around the joint conservative management is preferred due to the risk associated with the replacement surgery and a possible re-replacement surgery.
Avatar f tn I found out yesterday that I have almost no cartilidge left in my left knee and there are also spurs. The MRI report contained several big words I can't remember right now but my doctor actually said to me "You're a little young for a knee replacement but........". I am scared to death. In the last six years, I have had the tendons in my right ankle reconstructed and 4 screws and two pins placed in my left hand and wrist.
Avatar m tn She recently had a replacement on the other knee and noticed the difference in recovery right away that there seemed to be a weakness still in the knee she had done a year ago. The doctor often would answer my mothers concerns by telling her the knee was fine it was just in her head, and she just needed to continue to strengthen her leg with further excersise.
Avatar f tn My main question is about knee replacement since I have been disgnosed with RA.My biggest concern is in your opinion is knee replacement necesssary?
Avatar f tn Back in 1973 & 1974, at age 19, I had both kneecaps removed due to Chondromalacia Patella. I wasn't given replacement parts. Now as a 62 female, I find myself walking with a cane and my left knee is extremely painful. I consulted with 2 orthopedic MDs. The first one wanted to do joint replacement surgery. The second one said I am not a candidate for joint replacement surgery since I don't have kneecaps. He prescribed diclofenac potassium for the pain.
Avatar n tn I had surgery 9-29-08 and had a Zimmer gender specific total knee replacement. Since then I have pain around the outer edge of my left foot and across the arch of my foot. Can you give me an answer as to why this has happened and what can I do for the pain?
Avatar f tn The inside of my knee burned and hurt to even touch at that point. I got an MRI after that visit. When I went back to see my Dr. again, he said I only have a small tear in my menisuc on the inside of my knee and that he doesn't think I need surgery. He shot me up with cortisone, warned me it would be sore for a day or two, and then said to just go get a check up in a month. I got the cortisone shot 3 days ago, the pain, popping, and knee giving out has not gone away.
Avatar m tn However, if the knee pain is due to a local knee problem then the procedure may relieve hip pain but will not remove knee pain. Please discuss this with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
