Everyone said give it time to feel better. While a year doesn't guarantee a TKR will feel better, it was the magical time when my surgeon said " I want you to get another opinion bc you're miserable. You should not be in this kind of pain and if I miss something on your xrays or if something is not right, I want to know about it." Girst time the man talked to me, not st me.
So I got two other opinions. Both of these said;
1. The bottom part that is drilled into your shin is not in correct position.
2. You now have bone spurs on the thigh bone where the upper part is rubbing bc of improper placement.
3. You also have bursitis in shin ( said technical name of area, but I can't remember it)
Has anyone else had this happen? What did you do about it?
They are suggesting draining bursitis area, injecting bone spur area and doing another revision of replacement. My work requires me to be on my feet, walking and flexible. I also ride horses. My work schedule has me committed until the end of Spring right now. Then I have a month's break, unless I pick up more work, but July 1st, I start non stop until November or December.
Do you feel a month will be long enough to get me walking comfortably again? Last revision, I climbedback in the saddle in 9 weeks, really riding in 11. Currently, I probably walk about 5 miles a day, stand for about 7 -10 non consecutive hours, and ride for 1-3. I can't afford to give up my clients and spent the last two years building a nice clientele base. I'll get the surgery eventually. Trying to figure out when is the issue I am facing, but that's my problem.
