2nd knee revision
janetph posted:
I had my six month checkup today and the news was good! The clunking I hear/feel when I straighten out my leg is because there's a positive stop in what is the hinged knee that I now have. I can stop that from occuring by keeping my knee slightly bent all the time vs. more surgery or wearing a brace. I will work on strenthening my quadriceps and hope that alleviates the problem.

I look forward to hearing what others have to say about their hinged knee.
