Had my right knee replaced 10/16 - recovering normally. In 11/16 i was doing yardwork when i experienced great pain and swelling. I called my dr he said, ice, elevate. I couldn't do anything to alleviate the pain. I ended up going to the ER and was diagnosed with a bakers cyst. For 10 weeks following that my knee would have "epidsodes" i'd feel a pain across the top of the knee and it would be hard to bend - this happened 1,2,3,4 times a week. Went back to dr, said just part of the healing, hang in there, etc. After 12 weeks i went back to Dr and demanded an MRI and a bloodtest to rule out infection. Blood work came back negative. MRI showed tendonitis in the pateller and the quad and a bakers cyst. Basically go back to PT. SO i went to a new PT. For 6 weeks no episodes - great! A month ago today i was putting something in the oven and i felt something. Knee has been swelling up and has everyday sometimes 2-3 times. I ice, I use a portable tens unit but it is non-stop. Sometimes it is so bad I can't bend it. I even went to another dr and he is at a loss. Suggested a Bonescan but also said to "hang in there" till the one year mark cuz the Bonescan may show warm on a 6 month old knee. Basically told me to go back to my original dr - I'm at a loss - i've been to the dr 3 times in the past 3 weeks. Help!
