Hope no one here is in my shoes it stinks. To date I have had 17 surgeries on my L knee and another on the way. Since my last TKR ( May 9th 2016 ) I have had increased pain in left knee. The surgeon that did several of my knee surgeries retired and he referred me to another surgeon. No matter how many times I sent a message about how my knee felt nothing. Finally I got tired and found another surgeon. Had lab work and Bone scan done. The lab work shows no infection the bone scan was glowing!! To confirm whether it was infection or loosening more lab still no signs of infection. That is great had an infection before no fun. Now I find out the implant was put in wrong not aligned properly. I was told there is supposed to be 2mm of spacing and on my left its almost 40mm. Another issue I have had 5 TKR and there is going to be significant bone loss when they take this implant out. Now I am waiting to see a specialist who treat cancer and bone tumor patients since from what I have been told this will be a very complicated surgery . Has anyone gone thru anything like this?? I have had 17 surgeries so far on my L knee now I am in constant pain. Even with jeans on the average person can tell I have lots of swelling this really stinks.
