Leg and knee pain 15 months after TKR
irishiowa posted:
I see there are several people having my related problem. I told the doctor about my pain and he ordered a bone scan and checked for infection but nothing turned up. I went back to him a couple of weeks later and he asked me if I had trouble with the knee feeling like it wouldn't support me and I said that I feel like I have to hold onto something to get out of a chair, go up and downstairs and get in and out of low vehicles. He had no explanation for that. I read about a problem called flexion instability where it explained that if the components are not properly lined up you will have the problem that I am having and I showed that article to the doctor but he didn't address it directly. He checked my leg and knee by moving it around and said everything is lined up properly. He said to give it more time. I said what if I'm still having the problem in 6 months and he said he could do an exploratory but I don't want to do that if it's not going to change anything. Has anyone done this and not gotten better results?
