JUST CUROUIS I HAD A COMPLETE KNEE REPLACEMENT 5/4/2010 BUT IN JULY OF 2010 THEY WENT BACK IN CAUSE THE KNEE WOULD NOT STRAIGHTEN. SO THE SURGEON SAID I HAD ALOT OF SCAR TISSUE AND HE REMOVE SOME MUSCLES AND TRIED TO FIX. WELL NEEDLESS TO SAYU MY KNEE IS SWOLLEN AND VERY PAINFUL AND I CANNOT EXTEND ONLY HALF WAY BACK. HE TOOK SEVERAL EXRAYS AND ALL KINDS OF TESTS BASICALLY MY BODY IS TRYING TO REJECT. HE SAID I WILL NEED ANOTHER KNEE I MUST BE ALLERGIC TO THE NICKEL IN THE KNEE. WELL I GUESS I WILL HAVE TO WAIT ALONG AS I CAN CANNOT AFFORD, STILL PAYING FOR THE FIRST TWO SCREWUPS. JUST NEEDING ANY SUPPORT. THNKS
