Revision 2017

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hey I'm still not too happy about my revision surgery next month. The ligaments in my knee were really loose before the original TKR in July 2016 and the doctor thought he repaired them enough to tighten back up but that didn't happen. It caused the plastic piece to loosen as well, causing me unbearable pain. January 31, 2017, he's going to go back in and retighten my ligaments and insert a thicker piece of plastic. I'm praying that this eliminates my pain. Has anyone experienced ligament issues with their TKR? I opted for the surgery instead of wearing a brace for the rest of my life.

    Hello yes I know how you feel, I had a total knee replacement in August, 

    i have lots of movement with knee, lots of cracking, and movement in back of knee, and discomfort.

    ive had a x Ray and Iam told the reason all this is happening is at the time if the operation, they stretched my ligament, hence the problems, it's all to lose.

    what a pain, also had operation in December  last year on the same knee.
