End of my tether

Posted , 3 users are following.

I'm 9 months post TKR, had a MUA end of March, I was discharged from PT about 2 month ago. I've been having really bad pain stiffness clunking, I've been referred back to physio again, the pain today has been horrendous I'm so down with it, thought it would be a lot better by now , no one seems to know what to do I'm not sure what physio will do , I was hoping for maybe a xray as had just 1 after my op just to make sure everything is Ok, I'm sure I shouldn't be in this much pain 9 months post op

    Same here.  Going to another Orthopaedic surgeon real soon.  I suggest you do too.  Some implants are faulty and some surgeons have their resident do their/my surgery.  Not acceptable!!!

      I've been to the doctors and emergency doctors so many times but no one seems to want to know , they just say take pinkillers , I've been referred back to PT but not sure if that will help with pain etc

    I know it isn't much of a mental break but there is that old saying that for the 1st year the leg owns you and after that you may own it. This is definitely a bring. I've been through 11 leg surgeries and 5 complete rehabs and eventually there will be healing but only time will bring out the results you desire. Keep working and eventually the chips will fall your way. Just make sure you aren't showing any symptoms of infection. Go back and review the w wisdom of Chico Marx and pay attention to his advice to see if you are missing anything.
