Hi. I'm 15 weeks post op from total knee replacement. I'm 41, with brittle bones disease which has left me multiple fractures throughout my life. One of which left my left knee severely disfigured with eventually osteoarthritis. Bone on bone.
Had my total knee replacement 15 weeks ago at stanmore royal orthopadic hospital London.
I had problems with bending to begin with. Now I have bet the orthopedics expectation and have a bend of 105 instead of the predicted 90.
However today I woke up with swelling on the inside of the knee cap and below, it is painful. I have a painful grinding in it when I straighten and bend it. The grinding can be felt if you put your hand on my knee.
Any ideas please as to what it could be?. Am I worrying for nothing?
Please any advice would be really appreciated.
Thank you to anyone who replies
