Here is an update on my knee. I write earlier that my knee was collapsing and painful when walking and sometimes standing. I am 10 months out. I went to another doctor, on request of my regular knee Doctor to get a second option. He confirmed that my knee is unstable. It is not very bad so He suggested surgery to take out the plastic middle and replace it with a thicker one so as to tighten the ligaments. But I was to be prepare , if the doctor didn't like the way it moved,he would do a complete knee revision. Now I know what is wrong I feel better but not looking forward to having to go through this pain And rehab all over again. I was doing so good and about 7 months in this happened. This will make my 6th surgery in 4 years ( I had three foot surgeries and one knee scope before my tkr). This has been a hard one to mentally cope with. I guess because I know what I'm in for. I'm praying this surgery will go smoothly and recovery will be easier. I can always hope , right? I am thankful for this blog. It helps to be able to vent.
