Swollen Knee after TKR & 2 revisions & arthroscopes

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am 67 years old. Had a TKR in 2008. Then 2 revisions on same knee in 2009. Have also had Arthroscopes on same knee in 2006,2007 & 2008. Came back from Bali in June and knee was found to be bleeding internally in August and had an angiogram on my knee in September where 2 coils and a stent was inserted. Knee is now swelling painfully and GP and Specialist don't have any ideas about what to do.

    Oh Judy what to say! Can you seek other opinions? I hate it when they cannot offer solutions. So frustrating.
