    Revision TKR Right Knee Take Two

    On Jan 15, I had an EMG on the left arm for the numb fingers. It was inconclusive but showed a potential compression. The OS is reluctant to operate until it’s “worse” but couldn’t articulate what worse looks like it. Maybe it’s when it wakes me up at night or when they tingle all the time...

    Revision TKR Right Knee Take Two

    December 23,2019 Update It’s been a long time since my last update so here’s the latest. The implant is fine. The challenge I continue to face is pes anserina bursitis in the artificial knee. I’ve had three cortisone shots in 2019. The first two lasted a good while. The third wasn’t in the right...

    Finger/Thumb Now for the right CMC

    @Josephine, have you ever heard of swan neck deformity? What I thought might be a trigger finger is actually swan neck deformity and I have it in at least three fingers. I don’t have rheumatoid arthritis so it’s probably a result of the cerebral palsy I have. When I go back to have the stitches...

    Finger/Thumb Now for the right CMC

    Had the pre-op for thumb surgery today. All systems go for The 29th. I asked the surgeon about the left index finger. It’s not another trigger. It’s something called Swan Neck deformity. The only thing to do is get a ring type splint. Or, stop knitting which isn’t an option.

    Finger/Thumb Now for the right CMC

    You are probably right. I’ll ask him to do a steroid shot instead and that should keep me happy for a couple of months.

    Finger/Thumb Now for the right CMC

    Thanks. I’ll see if the hand surgeon will do another trigger release while he’s working on the other hand.

    Finger/Thumb Now for the right CMC

    In April of 2016, I had a arthroplasty/carpo-meta-carpal joint: left thumb carpo-meta-carpal arthroplasty, left index trigger finger release. On March 29 of this year, I will have the same thing on the right hand. The weird thing is the left index finger is bothering me again. It's painful and...

    Revision TKR Right Knee Take Two

    My two business trips were cancelled so I could work on a high priority project. Which is good. the not so good news is is my right hand is acting up and I’m having hand surgery at the end of March to repair the CMC (thumb) joint and a trigger finger of the Index finger. I had this same surgery...

    Revision TKR Right Knee Take Two

    The bakers cyst did resolve without further intervention. I’m going to make an appointment with the OS Jamie recommendation in late March. I have two business trips planned in the next month and had four So far in 2019. This much activity is really a lot on my poor knees.

    @Jamie, I sent you a PM to ask a somewhat related question.

    Revision TKR Right Knee Take Two

    Thanks, @Jamie. I’ll try doctor H in Orlando in a month or if I’m not doing better. My 1 year kneeversary is March 15 and I’m going give PT a try. As my revision was at Mayo in Jacksonville and the other OS I saw for possible scar tissue is also at Mayo, I don’t think I should try the 3rd knee...

    Revision TKR Right Knee Take Two

    @Jamie, do you have any recommendations for surgeons in Florida? My ZIP 32806 and I’m willing to drive uptown 250 miles.

    Revision TKR Right Knee Take Two

    Thanks, Josephine. I will call the OS tomorrow and see if I can get some clarification. In the meantime, the new NSAID isn’t helping and with my current pain levels, I am not keen on starting PT. I think I may just try walking in the pool or in my neighborhood while it’s cool. Yesterday, I...

    Revision TKR Right Knee Take Two

    This Baja thing doesn’t sound good. Should I go back to original OS and ask why he didn’t mention it and how is he/we gonna fix it? Or, should I seek out another unrelated doc? @Jamie, anyone on your magic list of great doctors in Florida? Within 300 miles of 32806.
