I have just had a medial partial knee replacement 5 weeks ago (left knee). However June 2017 I had the same operation on the right knee. So two PKR's.
I am looking for anyone's experience on this procedure. I know the recovery is very similar, my physio says in his experience partials can be more painful as they have to knit with more of you.
i have definitely found it to be excruciating in both instances. My problem is the first knee at ten months still hurts. If I poke it, it's like a toothache, it seems to be getting worse. I don't remember it being this sore after 6 months. Commen sense tells me it is because it is having to do all the work for the newly operated knee. But there is that element of doubt that this is here to stay. I would like to know if anyone has had the same. Walking is very painful and prior to all this walking was my life.
thanks for all your input on this forum it's very enlightening.
