    Revision TKR Third Surgery on Right Knee

    Hi Lynne, That’s too bad you are still having pain and issues with your Revision TKR surgery. I was still having issues with pain and swelling with mine too even after 12 weeks but my doctor said it looked fine. Now I am 24 weeks out and everything is great. Around 12-14 weeksI noticed it was...

    Revision TKR Third Surgery on Right Knee

    Hi Lynn, I think you will start to feel better beyond the 3 week mark. I was still on a bit of pain at 3 weeks but I could tell I was getting around the corner. I’m at 8 weeks today and do not have any pain at rest or walking. I think I was at this point between 4-6 weeks but can’t remember...

    Revision TKR Third Surgery on Right Knee

    Hi Lynne, I’m sorry you are having so much pain. When my doctor did my revision surgery, I was off pain pills by the third week. I only have a small pain when going up stairs and driving but Ive been able to handle it without medication. I am sorry you are having so much pain. You probably...

    Revision TKR Third Surgery on Right Knee

    Hi Lynne, Yes, My doctor replaced my spacer. It was 10 mm and now it is 13 mm. I just saw him for my 6 week follow up. He said I look great! I said I’m not great! He said I need to give it another 6 weeks. It’s been a bit over 7 weeks. It does feel like it is getting better. I still get pain...

    Revision TKR Third Surgery on Right Knee

    Ah ha!! Hee hee! No problem Jockette. Yes, pretty funny to see the operating room in the reflection. You’re probably right about the part I was referring to is a reflection. Ok I’ll give this time to recover. It definitely feels better everyday so I’m feeling positive about it. Thank you, Gary

    Revision TKR Third Surgery on Right Knee

    @Jockette - I agree with your revised assessment. I think the camera angle and the alignment of the metal bar in the hands are not aligned correctly. By the feel of my knee, it definitely feels better than the original alignment. I do have a new question. In my new photo below I highlighted...

    Revision TKR Third Surgery on Right Knee

    Thank you for that great explanation. However, the doc said that he did not remove any parts except the plastic spacer. I would think I should be able to see both metal implants. Maybe this isn’t my photo but it belongs to someone else. At my appointment today, he pulled out his phone, opened...

    Revision TKR Third Surgery on Right Knee

    I saw my new doctor today for my 6 week follow up since a Revision TKR that was on 10/15/2019, 5 1/2 weeks ago. The surgery was for fixing a problem with a ITBand problem, continued pain on stairs, in bed and driving. Original TKR surgery on 9/22/2016 that resulted with the IT Band issue that...

    TKR ITB Snaps2's recovery thread

    @ITBsnaps2 Hello, I am really sorry I did not know you had posted questions for me. This is the first time getting back on here probably for over a year but I’m not sure. What is the status of your knee now. Did you have that procedure to release your IT band? Are you still having issues with...

    TKR IT Band

    @Josephine Here is an update on my continued right knee problem. On Sep 22, 2016, I had total knee replacement. I never was able to completely heal from pain and swelling. After many months of visits with my doctor, I finally gave in to have an operation on releasing the IT Band by cutting a V...

    Rotator Cuff Shoulder Repair Surgery

    Hi, I have been icing it. I actually get more pain when I do ice it but I know how important it is to ice so I am doing it 20 min on 20 min off. I’ll probably go to ER in the later morning. I’m just hoping that I didn’t break the tendon loose from the bone. The 4 exercises I don’t think are...

    Rotator Cuff Shoulder Repair Surgery

    Hello, I'm on my first day after surgery. The block wore off this morning and the pain has continually been getting worse all day. They prescribed 2mg of Dilauded every 4 hours, 500mg Tylenol and 600mg Motrin every 6 hours. The problem is the meds were not keeping up with the pain. Midday...

    TKR IT Band

    Thank you for sharing jaschembra. Unfortunately, I am on Medicare and have used up all of my allowed PT sessions. I have already used the additional amounts due to medical need. I too got relief from deep tissue work by my Chiropractor who is an expert in IT Band Syndromes but I only...
