I had a right TKR in 2005 and has been no trouble whatsoever, over the past six months or so it has started to clunk inside when I walk so I think it is probably coming to the end of its natural lifespan.
Two weeks ago I had a fall and broke my right ankle. I was admitted to hospital because the cause of the fall was a blackout, now the ankle pain was bad enough but the pain in my right knee was something else, I had to argue to get the knee x rayed, but was told there was nothing wrong with it. After a very bad night pain wise I tried to get the hospital staff to understand how bad this pain was and in the end a CT scan was done, again I was told there was nothing wrong, now I know my own body and how it behaves, I still do not believe there is nothing wrong, and the reason being I was sent home with one of those big ski boot walkers, but even now two weeks later it is the terrible pain on both sides of my knee that is giving me the most problem, it is so bad I don't want to walk on it at all.
Is it possible to dislodge a TKR because of a fall ?
Apologies for the long post.
