I had a TKR back in November 14 and now having major pain with it. Been to hospital and had two bone scans both which show nothing wrong with the metal or cement or any loosening. The pain in my knee is getting worse. The only thing the surgeon thinks the problem could be are the ligaments loosening. This being the case he may need to do a revision. Only problem now is that my hip on the same leg needs doing too and the surgeon says that this needs doing first as the hip will not cope with the knee exercises for the revision. Seem to be caught between a rock and a hard place. Do I have the hip replaced and hope the pain in the knee fades or should I have the knee done. Either way the pain in my knee is getting worse. I have been prescribed naproxen but notice now that it is not touching the pain. Any advice most welcome. Waiting for a steroid injection for the hip and this helps the knee too. Getting fed up now of hobbling around.
