    So the saga continues... my knee now crackles at the side where I’m having the pain. It’s also happening much quicker than it was. I’m just sick over this, I can’t walk more than a few minutes and then it gets that awful pain. I made a surgeon appointment for next week but I’m not sure I will...

    [REVISION TKR] Hmm. Not thrilled with the revision yet<

    I am so with you:( I’m calling my surgeon I’m in so much pain. It takes nothing for my knee to flare up and cause so much pain. I just am hoping it’s just the it band but I can’t believe the pain excruciating when going down a slight hill or stairs.. I sure hope you feel relief soon!! Xx

    [REVISION TKR] Jolease's knee saga part 3<^
