TKR problem after 21 months

Posted , 7 users are following.

I had a TKR in my left leg almost two years ago. Everything was going reasonably good until a week ago when I was woken up out of my sleep with the most excruciating pain. It subsided after a time but since then my knee is sore and stiff and feels like it is going to collapse under me. I would love to hear if anyone else experienced anything like this. I lost my Dad 4 weeks ago and was wondering if this triggered something. Any advice welcome. THANK YOU

    Don't understand this. Had RTKR 2 years ago with 0 issues since healed. Get to your Dr. asap.

    Hi I had TKR 2 yrs ago & this time approx, last Yr I had excruciating pain &swelling in my knee. It would subside after a while but then would start up again for no reason that I could fathom. Eventually after a particularly bad episode my husband took me to a&e. They admitted me & while I was in had several more episodes. Consultant took me to theatre to take off some fluid from swelling for testing. Meanwhile they sent me home again with morphine. When I saw consultant again he said results of tests were negetive but he want to do more checks for infection. Was sent for bone scan & that came bk negetive as well. All tests I had showed nothing. Consultant could only presume I'd torn a ligament & had a bleed. Had no more episodes of pain, so still a bit of a mystery. Knee still not great tho. Struggle on stairs & hills. Feels like a tight band round it. If your pain carries on go to Dr or A&E. I wish you luck.
