    Revision TKR My Revision after a Loose Implant

    @Jean houston, a regular x-ray should show if your knee replacement is loose. Then they do a bone scan that should confirm it. They also, do blood work to rule out infection. My original knee replacement hurt from the beginning. It was hard to lean over and touch the floor without tibia pain. My...

    Revision TKR Never give up, keep trying, don't settle - that's me, Bonnie

    @RunA42K, I looked into that clinical trail and when they told me it involved injecting Capsaicin (chili peppers) into the knee, I thought twice about it! Let me know if you get in and if it works. I might reconsider it for my other knee.

    Revision TKR Patella Button Failure

    @Double Trouble, Did they have to open you up again like a TKR revision? Is your scar as big for the revision? So, you say the surgery and recovery isn't as bad as a revision?

    TKR Loosening of implant.

    @bookread, did you have to fast for 4 hrs prior to the CT scan? Did you have to drink any prep?

    TKR Loosening of implant.

    @ Jockette, I don't think so. I didn't ask. I believe it is iodine they inject via IV. My internist ask me if I want contrast and I said, why not! I just found out I have to drink something plus get something thru an IV. They said I would have to fast even if it was without contrast! :nah...

    TKR Loosening of implant.

    @bookread, I am having a CT scan of my Left knee on Dec. 18th. Do I need to have contrast with this scan or is without fine? If I have it with contrast, they want me to fast 4 hrs. before.....I don't want to do that!

    Revision TKR Patella Button Failure

    @Double Trouble, good post. I might be having a loose patella button with my revision. I saw my internist yesterday and she ordered a CT scan with and without contrast so we can see what is going on! I will let you know when I know something. Take care.
