Constat Clicking

Posted , 6 users are following.

Almost 7 mo post op, anyone experiencing a CONSTANT clicking/popping? Every single step is at least 2 to 3 hard loud pops/clicks. So loud my wife can hear me walking around the house over the tv. Is this common and anyone else experiencing this?

    How is your bend? I had am awful clunking noise in mine and I couldn't bend it like I needed to, so I had surgery and the Dr, removed a huge band of scar tissue. Glad I had it done. No more clunking and I can bend better now!

      Hi Kimmers -- I was reading Bruce's problem and you mention that your doctor performed surgery and removed scar tissue. Can I please ask you a question:  how many months you are post TKR and what type of surgery dud the dictor perform. I am 10 months post TKR and I could only bend my knee between 105-110. The doctor told me that I have adhesions/scar tissue, but there is nothing that he can do about it because I am 10 months post TKR.  I appreciate if you can let me know what type of surgery you had done. Thanks a million. J-21370

      I am 9 1/2 months post TKR. I just had my surgery aboit 5 1/2 weeks ago. Basically my Dr. went in and remoced a huge band of scar tissue and now I don't have any noise. He also tried to bed it a little more but did not much because he was afraid he would break my leg. I was at 1bout 105- 110 and now since this surgery I am alreadt at 125!! 

      Good luck and keep us updated.

    I'm not sure about "constant" but all those noises are normal.  Docs say they could last 12-18 months.  I'm 17 months p/o and I still get them from time to time.  I just ignore them.  Doc said: "You've got a giant mechanical device implanted in your body.  And you expected...what?"

    Hi Bruce, sorry not heard of this happening, have you been to see your GP/consultant? It might be worth it just for reassurance that all is ok.
