I have had 6 left knee surgeries. A full fulkerson, scopes and total kneecap replacement in April. I'm still in pain, swelling, grinding, popping and stiffness. My orthopedic surgeon is still following me closely and is aware of all of this. I was told to stop physical therapy because the pain was unbearable and was told to only do what I can. The pain wakes me up all night long! My knee gives out on me quite a bit and I'm just so discouraged. I think my drs is just as disappointed as I'm? I'm 41 and feel like my life is limited. The more I live around the more the swelling and pain. I have nerve damage in my knee and I can't feel parts of it. I don't even shave my knee. Is this a common Part of a kneecap replacement or is there other options? I just want to live a day pain free and no complications. Also a goods night rest would be nice. Thanks for any and all help.
