I had TKR in June 2018, my knee has been paining me since day one. I had a review 5 weeks after and told everything was ok....I wasn't called back since, so I had to contact hospital for an appointment which I had last Monday...7 months post op,
I was so shocked when I was told my knee implant is loose and stretched....he told me I had 2 options...1, do nothing and wear a knee brace or 2, have the operation again..( revision )
This was based on an X-ray and physical examination. I have decided not to have op again, I'll wear knee brace and pain relief.
I had blood tests done and told if I dont hear from them everything normal and if abnormal they'll be in touch.
I'm so worried and frightened and anxious now because I got letter to have an aspiration done next Friday...
Does this mean I might have an infection in my new joint and might have no choice but to have the operation again 😨.
The surgeon's secretary told me my bloods were a little off and nothing to worry about...I'm convinced this is just something they tell everyone....
Please help with your thoughts, I'm hoping if I have an infection it's only superficial and anti-biotics will work...or maybe i have no infection at all, they just doing aspiration to rule out infection...I'm so nervous, I'll be feeling sick until I know. Has anyone out there have similar problems.
