Total knee replacement x ray

Common Questions and Answers about Total knee replacement x ray


Avatar n tn Due to numerous work injuries - I had a total knee replacement in April of 2006. I did fine for the first 6 months postop but in the fall started feeling alot of pain and increased instability. In March of 2007 I had a partial knee replacement to remove the original spacer and replace the bottom prosthesis. The original spacer was worn down very thin in the back and I was told by my new surgeon that it was due to the wrong size spacer being used initially.
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 f tn i had total knee replacement in may.2009.but still i get pain and feeling of heaviness in knees more in right knee in night during sleep .i can walk for about half KM or so comfortably.please advise.
Avatar f tn My husband, age 72, had a left total knee replacement. Since that time, he has developed a bone spur on the outside of the knee replacement device - and the spur irritates the tendons in his knee. He has a dull pain in his leg all the time. The surgeon had never seen a spur like this after surgery and indicated any further surgery would be worse than the first; otherwise, live with the pain.
Avatar f tn Omg, I had Min. Ivase. Total Knee Replacement 5 weeks ago. Reacted badly to pain meds and stayed in the hospital 3 days then a week in a nursing home. The pain is none stop even with the drugs (may as well take water). At night is totally unbearable (yes I use a pillow between the legs and ice). Please oh Please tell me there is a time limit on pain!!! I am in Physical Therapy, limited during my hospital stay, nursing home, in house, and now outside of the home.
Avatar f tn I have arthritis through out my body. 15 months ago I had total knee replacement, now I have pain there. There is a sore spot on either side of the knee, sometimes the pain wakes me. My ortho did x-rays last wk and cannot find any reason for the pain. Have any of you had this same experience?
Avatar f tn The only solution if you have complete cartilage loss is to go for a total knee replacement surgery and you can discuss with an expert orthopedician. Take all necessary precautions, wear proper foot wear and you can go in the car and do not put much pressure on your knees. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Total knee replacement surgery completes with full recovery only with proper rehabilitation programme. Have you been on physical therapy after surgery? The other causes could be fabellar snapping or loosening of prosthesis. For these conditions fabellectomy or revision surgery can help treating your problem. Discuss with your doctor regarding these possibilities. All the best.
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 I had my right total knee replacement 11/10/11 and my left total knee replacement 1 1/2 years prior to that. As of today both of my knees continue to throb, shooting pains down my legs, mostly at night. My orthopedic M.D. has done x-rays several times and sees nothing. He claims that it "could" be tendinitis. I currently take 2-5mg. ea. immediate release Oxycodone every 4 hours. THAT is his solution. It does help, but not all the time.
Avatar m tn my Orthopedic Surgeon in canada told me that the Doctor Talwar in Ganga Ram hospital only did partial knee replacement and not total knee replacement and that is why i have this knee pain. it is hard to believe that a highly reputed hospital like Ganga Ram can do such a cheating. also advise me of the qualifications of Dr. naveen Talwar.
Avatar n tn I'm so sorry that you are encountering so much pain with your knee. May I ask which type of surgery you had done on your knee. 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.

1027575 tn?1390964018 22nd, i got a good report on my wrist progress. it appears in the x-ray all looks normal, i guess that means the bones are fusing. the doctor was extreamly happy that i had full flextion of my fingers, he noted that was one the main problems with people that have total fusion, they don't work on streightening there fingers mainly the middle finger. my next appt. is in 4 weeks and if he's happy with the progress then i'll start strenghing my arm or what ever is done.
1097402 tn?1257390243 Hi, I had a hip replacement in Feb 2008. It's been great up until 3 weeks ago when I experienced sudden pain from my grion to my knee after walking up about 400 steps (I was on holiday in Laos & was walking up a mountain to a temple). The pain resolved after 24 hours and I was able to go terkking through the jungle for a couple of days. After I returned home the pain returned a couple of times but is now more frequent & severe. I've had an x-ray which has shown nothings wrong.
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 He said all the x-rays looked fine, and that he'd never heard of this specific type of knee pain. He recommended Advil and not kneeling (uh, thanks, doc.) I'm miserable because there's no way to avoid kneeling in yoga class. And this isn't just an dull achy annoying pain, it's a really sharp sudden you-better-stop-what-you-are-doing pain.
Avatar n tn Surgical options are reserved for persistent or severe symptoms and include arthroscopy, osteotomy, and total knee replacement. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.

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 n tn I had a total knee replacement in early July and then had to have a manipulation in early October. The flexion is somewhat better extension not so much. But the pain and sweeling is much worse plus heat. Why? I am sorry I ever did this I think the pain and restrictions I had before were better at this point. It is all on me and my therapist at this point. Back to the doctor again tomorrow see what he says. Are we just the lucky ones? I hope you get answers and are better soon.
1733156 tn?1310301457 If they don't suggest it, ask for an x-ray to be sure that there is nothing new going on with your knee. Again, I'm so very saddened that this has happened to you and especially all of the increased pain and side-effects that you are having from your surgery!! I'll be looking for your updates and I hope and pray that you get some really good results so that you won't have to suffer anymore than you already have. Sending some "good thoughts" your way...........
Avatar n tn My last set of x-ray looked good so I will see what he says about the stiffness at my one month appointment. To all of you thinking about disk replacement: I have had a good experience. I am happy with the results. However, there is not a lot of known information about the procedure. I have heard some "I just cannot answer that" and "nobody really knows that for sure" from my doctor (who I add is the most arrogant man I have ever met.
Avatar n tn I had the same problem in my right knee on the past 15 moths, I do many blood analysis, X-ray, and MRI and all of them is good without founding any problems!
Avatar m tn Finally i was referred to an Orthopedic Surgeon who said I was a good canidate for total knee replacement but I was much too young for such an operation. This is usually done on older patients. He did suggest I have an operation called "High Tibial Osteotomy" He cuts the top (Femer) bone and the bottom(tibia)bone and moves them over slightly so they are not rubbing in the same spot. Then he pins it to its stabalized. This should last for about 5 years or so.
