I had TKR in February 2017 I developed a blood clot in my calf three days after my op. Once I got over that things seemed to be going well until six months when I started to get really bad pain in my knee. This has continued to get worse. I have had all sorts of scans and ex-rays but nothing conclusive has been found. On my last visit to my consultant I found out that they did not replace or do anything with my knee cap. This where most of pain is, some days it is like when you fall over and graze your knee. It is like a burning sensation with pain also. It is my belief that the cartilage and bone of my knee cap is now rubbing on metal and plastic thus causing the severe pain particularly when I go up and down stairs. Has anyone else got this problem and is it in fact due to nothing being done with the knee cap?
