I had bone on bone before my replacement it was initially a TKR than the surgeon decided to do a partial. Fast forward 10 weeks still need assistance to walk can't walk without either the walker or cane. Can not stand on my own even when using the cane or walker there is a lot of pressure to the front of the leg. Still have sensation issue cant wear anything over it or lay underneath blanket at night. Also feel this throbbing jumping in the front of the knee. Went to get a second opinion from another OS as to why I feel like im not healing properly and was told my implant is metal on metal and there may be a problem with the implant but I won't know until it has been removed. So I ask who is at fault for this being I have to have a 2nd surgery to hopefully fix the problem. No answers given just saying it can be several things that can cause this. Is there some oath that says one MD cannot accuse another MD of wrong doing. Anybody else considering sueing the OS due to additional surgery needed?
