Has anyone had cement left in their knee after the TKR? I'm 4 years post, and my knee feels swollen all the time - like it has a rubber band around it. Anyone have this happen to them? And, I've had back problems since my surgery - really bad!

They say that if I had the cement removed, it could be that I could then get infection!

I really don't understand what you're asking. The cement is supposed to be left in your knee, That's what is holding the new knee in place.

Your last sentence doesn't really make sense. I don't know who "They" are but you need to be asking these questions to the surgeon who replaced the knee and not "Them".
