Had 2 partial knee replacements about 11 years ago and have been very pleased with the improvement in mobility meaning I could do most things including bowls golf and walking. However in past few weeks experienced aches  in left knee and some stiffness. Recently have found my left knee gives way and I'm afraid I might fall when this happens as I get no warning. Has anyone experience of this? Any any suggestions please.

    i'm just on week 4 of my TKR. Before I decide do have this Op my knee was also giving way plus I had difficulty walking very far

    because the knee kept letting me down I was afraid of falling

    i've read lots of different experiences on websites about TKR but I felt I had no option

    today the pain has settled down a little what tomorrow brings. I don't know

    but I'm sure in time I'll be glad I had it done

    it is definitely scary when the knee lets you down without warning 

    take care and good luck

      Many thanks. Having had partial knee  replacement on both knees 11 years ago I do appreciate the post op recovery problems. However I never had the feeling of my knee letting me down. I shall get knees Xrayed and pay for a private consultation to discuss options,,
