I had a tkr a year ago which failed due to problem with rotation and alignment, and it all needed to be redone 3 weeks ago after the problem was discovered on a CT scan after I got a second opinion. I have been fitted with a rotating platform long stemmed hinged prosthesis this time and am 3 weeks into my recovery and doing OK, although it's very painful and doesn't bend too well at this stage. I am a fit and active 62 year old and can't wait to get my life back after 12 months of ongoing pain and swelling (and the original surgeon telling me I was just being impatient!! )
Just wondering if anyone out there has had a similar experience and if so how the recovery went? Also any ideas how long this type of prosthesis lasts????! Advice welcome!
