Knee replacement due to a lot of pain
teeka posted:
I would just like some feedback, I had a partial knee replacement going on 3 years ago on my left knee. Now it's hurting again but this time I am getting a lot of pain in the back of my knee also, that the back of my leg goes numb once in a while. I was just wondering if anyone else had or has this same issue. Have an appointment with my Orthopedic doctor for Monday, I already had a cortisone shot in both of my knees like a month ago but it didn't last long. I'm ready for the replacement surgery so I can live a normal life, just wondering if anyone has any comments on this!!!

teeka...I had a total hip replacement one year ago, and my hip is painful, feels unstable, and my leg is weak. I just got a cortisone shot in my hip joint and it feels better, but we'll see how long it lasts. I also have spinal issues so maybe that's part of the problem, but I am extremely disappointed with my THR.
