Common Questions and Answers about Total knee replacement x ray


Avatar f tn I am 53 years of age.I also got a THR due to AVN more than an year ago. My X-RAY, Bone scan etc are normal. There is no loosening, no infection and X ray looks normal. I still have pain sensation on lower part of the thigh which faces the chair while sitting i.e when it touches the hard surface and the pain while walking starting from thigh to knee and lower part of the legs. The good leg and thigh also pains while walking and sitting but lesser than the operated one.. Is there a treatment.

Avatar m tn The best treatment, presently for Osteoarthritis , is Total knee replacement.Can you upload her knee X-rays on the photo section, so that i will be able to comment on that.
Avatar n tn Pain in the knee after total knee replacement can occur due to knee infection or loosening, resurfaced patella, with effusion in the joint occuring due to worn out polyethylene components, due to damage to the vessels and nerves around the knee etc. In case of infection antibiotics would help. In case of worn out polyethylene components may be reoperation could be considered. Also you mentioned that a cyst is present in the knee area, this could have been the cause of pain in the knee.
Avatar f tn Total knee replacements take time to heal properly. Trust me, I have had both knees replaced and know many other with arthritis, bot osteo and rhematoid that have had knee replacement as well. Each of us heal in our own time frame but the general length of time for all to be really right again seems to be around 5 - 6 months. At three months, which was what I was told I should be doing well, I still had a lot of PT and work to do.
Avatar m tn You need to run some basic tests for rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune diseases, diabetes and hypothyroidism as all can cause multiple joint pains. Also, an X-ray and MRI of the knee joint will be helpful. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
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 If total knee is stiff (less than 90 degrees of flexion) although you have had a good range of motion in your knee before the operation and if the X-ray picture shows that the total knee prosthesis is placed correctly, then a manipulation of your knee under narcosis may be considered. The manipulation under narcosis may be done under the first three postoperative months. Later on, the soft tissue scares have matured and the tissues cannot be stretched passively.
Avatar f tn Her throat ultrasound was OK, her chest x-ray fine and the barium swallow GI tract x-ray confirmed acid reflux. My mother is afraid to eat now (because she feels worse after eating), is losing weight and her strength. She feels worse in the morning and usually better in the latter part of the day. She has not gotten better in all of those three weeks. She is on some kind of prescription acid medication and has been so for several years.
Avatar n tn He took an x-ray, it looked fine, so he said I had IT band syndrome and it would take 12 to 18 months to heal. I was returning to work and had a lot of knee and now thigh pain. When I walk too much or use the stairs I limp. I went back to my doctor in June, he scheduled an MRI of the right knee and I had a meniscus tear. An x-ray of my hip said the prosthesis was fine. I then had an arthroscopy to shave the meniscus in Aug.2008. My knee feels better, but I still have a lot of thigh pain.
Avatar f tn I am 58 year old female. I just had my second total knee replacement to the rt knee on Nov 18,2014. This one has hurt and swelled so bad. I felt pretty good on morning after surgery. Got up with therapy and walked 300 ft. did all the other stuff, heel slides, etc. Well they killed me that night, they put me in that cpn machine and set it for 110. I was in that thing all night. I could hardly walk to the bathroom little alone do anything else.
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 n tn Was it a Total Knee Replacement (TKR) or was it one of the Arthroscopic Surgeries on your knee or was it something else? I have never had any knee surgery but have had 3 Total Hip Replacements (THR) on the same hip so I understand the pain and discomfort that you are going through. I've had a very dear Friend that had the TKR several years ago and know what she went through after it.
Avatar f tn hi Thanks i will try all that stuff as it is really sore, The reason im worried is because there has never been any injury to the knee its just appeared, My Gp said my x ray is baffling as it is showing things that would appear in an elderly persons x ray not a girl in her early twenties.
Avatar n tn I'm a 66 yr old female, normal weight. Had a total knee replacement six months ago because of a torn ACL, torn meniscus and arthritic knee. The pain is now worse than before I had the replacement surgery. My knee is always swollen, stiff and hot to touch since surgery. I have taken Celebrex that helped the pain but had to stop because my kidney function BU/CU ratio is now elevated. I cannot take other NSAID's because they elevate my blood pressure.
Avatar f tn I am increasing weight bearing a little at a time and in physical therapy. A year ago I also had a total knee replacement on the same side. I want to know realistically how long it will be before I can drive and ditch the crutches and walking air cast? I also need to do the same total knee replacement and foot reconstruction on the other leg. Has anyone else had similar experiences?
452066 tn?1400626877 At what point does an orthopedic surgeon come to a conclusion that a partial knee replacement is the only option? I had surgery for a torn meniscus on my left knee over a year and a half ago. Since then, the knee feels worse and is progressively getting worse. I have been on steroids, had injections, take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, went through PT...and even continue to exercise the knee now.
Avatar f tn I am 47 and had total knee replacement in May of this year, all went well and I was released by my doctor and therapy after 5 weeks. As of a week ago I have started to have a great deal of pain in the knee and stiffness and very sore on the outside to the touch. i have not injured it and do use the stairs and walk in my home on a daily basis. why would this start giving me such pain. I had a check up 3 weeks ago with x-rays and all looked well.
Avatar n tn Is the symptoms have been more prominent in the morning, when you put your first step out to work? Take an X ray and if symptoms mimic osteoarthritis then take some pain killers like ibuprofen and glucosamine for better joint lubrication.
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 m tn I researches this and have read many posts that actually support what he said . What is the difference between a routine knee replacement and one where 2/3 of the knee cap is gone???? Maybe my new doc will better explain this but am waiting until my next PCP visit to request a different specialist .
