Tkr pain

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had a total knee replacement 1 1/2 years ago. I can't bend and straighten my leg but can not pivot, lean from side to side, bare weight or Lucy my leg sideways without stabbing pain on outer side of knee. My doctor wants to do a arthroscopic surgery. Fires anyone have these issues??? What could it be?

    Did he say what he hopes to accomplish or what he thinks might be wrong. If it's in the joint itself an X Ray should define the problem. My guess is he thinks something has healded wrong and he wants to try and unlock it but needs to actually look and see what's wrong as he can't use an MRI . a scope is usually a quick heal unless he has to cut and sew, then it takes a while
