Hi guys .. I have had one TKR and have nothing but problems (mine was due by being run over by a truck) I'm 10mths post op have now had a bursitis on my hip for 4mths and am having a 2nd ultrasound guided booster injection on Monday for it. Have just found out today that I have a bursitis in the muscle surrounding my TKR .. I had a fall full on my operated knee on day 8 after surgery. Xray came back all was clear but I personally thought something wasn't right with my knee .. even tho I had no idea what my knee would feel like. Dr says that it has shown up more and the pain associated with it has been so intense since I stopped taking narcotics. He also believes that it happened with my fall as I've always complained about it but not to this extent. So glad I'm off the narcotics as I fully want them out of my system b4 my next TKR so the drugs will work better. Dr says that he has only ever seen a bursitis on a TKR once b4, has anyone else suffered with this .. this has been one horrendous experience .. hoping the next one flies by without issues!
Thanks to all .. Cheers Tracey
