Knee replacement

Aug will be 3 years since my knee replacement - and I HATE my knee!
1 month after the surgery, I had to have scar bands broke up - then in March after my surgery (7 Months) I had to have a scope done on the same knee to have a fluid pocket removed. I still do the PT exercises, I ride the bike, do treadmill but I can not do stairs. I have pain every day on the top of my knee - and if anything even touches my knee i cringe in pain. I can not sit with my leg at a down angle for very long. I fall all the time. I have been to the ER 4 times for severe falls. I just fell yesterday while standing still in the shower. I HATE my knee. I have more pain with the replacement than I did with my old knee - and I never fell before.

I am having the same kind of issues with a partial replacement... I don't know what to do. I am so sorry that you are suffering as well. I know how awful it is.
