    Yes, Jo... He said the pain is most probably shin splints.

    Need fusion information or advice? Im back!!!

    I saw the "new guy" that took Dr. Kelly's place... Dr. Goldberg. He was great! Let me ask questions, listened and spent over an hour with me. Bottom line, now that I have RA, my complicated situation is more complicated and complex... and at high risk for complications and a bad outcome for...

    Need fusion information or advice? Im back!!!

    Hi Jo! Yes, it was a huge moment for me to not only only trust myself, bug the horse beneath me. You can only imagine my emotions as I sat in that saddle with my fusion leg sticking straight out! I will treasure that moment forever!!! Ive been having some trouble lately with the after effects...

    TKR my leg is not going straight after TKR surgery

    I agree! Its waaaay too early to be forcing your knee/leg straight with a weight. The old saying "no pain... no gain" is exactly that. Old! Some pressure and some "pain" is normal, but pain above a "4" is too much at only 6 weeks out. I think Jo suggested at one point that I keep a daily...

    TKR My new knee

    Wow!!! I just read the thread and now my mind is filled with "could I do this?"... My "savior", Dr. Kelly, is no longer in the state, so I am seeing a new surgeon on June 12th. Im discussing with him the status of my "good" knee, which is now medial bone-on-bone. Im worried that with the...

    TKR my leg is not going straight after TKR surgery

    Wow! Did you have a problem with your foot turning out before the surgery? I didn't. I knew after waking up from anesthesia and looking at my foot that something was wrong. I questioned it constantly, but was told I had weak leg muscles. Ha! I rode horses every day and my legs were super...

    TKR my leg is not going straight after TKR surgery

    Hi! This also happened to me. After my TKR, my foot turned out. When I pointed my toes straight up, it felt like my foot was pointing in. Painful PT, and months of pain. I had an UAM and was never told that while I was under, the surgeon could get my leg to zero degrees, but it would not...

    Need fusion information or advice? Im back!!!

    Hi everyone! Well... Its been since 2012 since Ive been active. My story is a long one, which you can search on Bonesmart. Basically, after a botched left knee TKR which also left me with RSD/CRPS, I had several surgeries to correct and free me from dependence on pain killers and to attempt a...

    Need fusion information or advice? Im back!!!

    Hi everyone!....I'm sorry it's been so long since I posted. Things are going pretty good. I obtained complete fusion in September....yay! My RSD has started to bother me again since the cold weather is now here. I decided it was easier getting around without the lift in my shoe. For some...
