I have pvns, and have had it since I was 12. I have had 9 synovectomies, the last one at age 26 ( I now 44) then radiation after my last surgery in 1996. I was told at that time I needed a knee replacement, but they wouldn't do it until I was older. I wentered through cortisone shots, syncvisc, syncvisc-1, pysicall therapy and aspirations once a week for years. I have not rode a bike since age 12, and havent been able to run since then either. I had a total knee replacement on January 8, 2015 and today is the 9th at 2:11 am I am. I have not had ANTHING for pain since 1 pm (4 1/2 hours after surgery) I can bend my knee almost 90 degrees alreasy and have been up walking with a walker since I got to my room. I have almost no pain! I cried because for 32 years my pain has never been lower than a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. I feel like I have carried such a weight on me for that time and it was lifted off! I want to ride a bike, and run for no reason but just to run. Is this weird having virtually no pain after TKR? I f this us not a dream, I truly have experienced a MIRACLE!
