    I had a TKR done on my left knee May 2015. It seemed to heal and had no noticeable problems. I had the right TKR done on November 4th 2015. Did wonderful. Finished PT by November 14th. All of sudden I started really bad pain in both knees while doing stairs and getting up from regular height chairs. My knees feel like they are on fire like the skin is totally raw and bleeding. Doc said I did to many stairs and I have tendinitis in both knees. Can't understand why I would suddenly have pain in my other knee that had already healed. He said to rest it and don't do anything that caused me any pain. After resting for six weeks with no improvement at all I return back to my doctor. I am in so much pain I should probably have used my walker but didn't. Doctor has no idea what is wrong. Every X-ray (and there were plenty) showed everything was perfect. He thinks I an allergy to the metal. My symptoms are some itching around the knee, awful pain when doing stairs and muscle soreness all over my body. Some joints, like tennis elbow have started to act up. I can't get scheduled for metal testing until October 31st 2016. I live in Kentucky. Don't think I can stand to wait that long. Can anyone tell me what they would do?
