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 hi lynsey163, the Range of motion depends on the type of implant you have used.Standard implamts promise about 110 degree ROM(zimmer normal knee/depur PFC) where as there are some which give about 165 degrees ROM (zimmer high flex knee / depuy rotating platform knee). so you have to tell me , which implant you have used. 2 weeks is a pretty small time. by this time ROM should be atleast 90 degrees, no matter what implant you have used.
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 f tn I had 3 surgeries on my right knee, my first in May 2008, 2nd in Oct 2008, and total knee replacement in April 2009. I have completed phsical theraphy at home for 7 weeks, and outpatient P.T for 6 add'l wks. I have more pain now than before. I can't walk without my cane for long periods, I can't sit, because my back now hurts, and I can't sleep too well. All medications and shot of cortisone don't seem to work well. I continue to search for a avenue of relief.
Avatar f tn Thank you for the information on the knee replacement. I had a shoulder replacement a little over a year ago and I believe I'm in for a revision/second surgery on it very soon. Recently I've been having intense, severe pain and loss of mobility in the shoulder that, in some respects, is worse than before the surgery.
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 m tn However, if your quality of life is poor and all other options have been exhausted. Knee replacement can be extremely effective. Whether, total knee, partial knee, or patellafemoral replacement is best can only be determined ny examining you and reviewing your xrays.
Avatar f tn I had a osteotomy on my right knee which was a total disaster and had to have a total knee replacement later. I need total knee replacement on my left knee.

I know I have to have the P.T. for about 6 weeks and all that but boy it's a painfull surgery and what type of pain medication would you think would be sufficent?
Avatar f tn m only 46) and having some other health issues (lupus, fibromyalgia, asthma), he would strongly suggest going with a total knee FUSION as opposed to a total knee REPLACEMENT. He said that because I am relatively young (although I don't feel young most days) and have the autimmune problems, there is an increased chance that a knee replacement would not last very long for me and would have to be done at least one more time, if not several times.

Avatar m tn I have been an active 66 year old male. I had successful knee replacement surgery 11 weeks ago. My father died of a massive heart attack when he was 66.
Avatar f tn I was surprised that he did not mention it before I had the arthroscopy or at a later appointment when he bluntly told me that I required a knee replacement. So, my question is, are the Synvisc injections readily available in Australia? I was considering going to Thailand or such and have them there (...and if successful, just continuing my travels from there). I would like to delay the replacement surgery and travel for few months prior to being laid up recovering from surgery.
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.

I would like to know opinions on this, success rates using this type procedure, and any other additional information since I am considering trying this route in a few months. Many thanks for any information provided!
