    TKR Malaligned Valgus knee following TKR

    Hi to both @Sara61 and "Mrs. Ciz" Thanks for your thoughts. I don't believe any sort of robotic assistance was carried out on my knee. I was the last to go down to theatre at about 3pm and he had already carried out 3 before mine, so not ideal :sad:. I have a lot to be grateful for and am...

    TKR Malaligned Valgus knee following TKR

    Hi Karen That is great news, that your knee has improved a lot, and long may it continue for you. It is indeed one of those conundrums isn’t it? I can do all those things I struggled with, pre TKR - long walks, golf and cycling - so why take a risk and opt for revision surgery. I think some of...

    TKR Malaligned Valgus knee following TKR

    Hi to all from the UK Thought I would post an update, nearly a year since my TKR. I continued with all my exercises, including daily walks. I still have a clonking sound from my knee and it feels lax or loose at times. I have slight pain on the outside of the knee and referred pain, still, in my...

    @Celle - apologies for that, I was unaware of the instruction concerning tagging. Thank you for your observations and comments. I expect my talk of a revision is more to do with my disappointment concerning the 12 degree valgus and the pain associated with me having a different gait. I will, of...

    TKR Malaligned Valgus knee following TKR

    Hiya Karen, Naturelover, Jamie, Jockette, Jaycey, and Tykey. Hope you are all well. Saw the physio on Friday and he measured the valgus for me at 12 degrees. My ROM is now at +3 to 117, which I am pleased about. He doesn’t think that he will be able to alter the valgus too much with exercises...

    Hiya Jockette, thanks for the replies and for steering me towards the other posts. I will have to come to terms with it and bide my time won’t I? Cjackso, no I am not confident in it’s stability but it has not given way yet. I have been strengthening it and can descend and ascend stairs okay. I...

    TKR Malaligned Valgus knee following TKR

    Hi to Naturelover. Sounds like you do have a similar outcome to me and that you are equally frustrated. The general advice seems to be that we both must wait it out, but keep up with our exercises and stretches. I have worked hard on my ROM and took on board everything about encouraging the leg...

    TKR Malaligned Valgus knee following TKR

    Thanks Jaycey and Tykey for your quick replies. I am icing and elevating when necessary. I appreciate it is early days but you can probably appreciate my disappointment, having gone into surgery with a straight, albeit painful and unstable, leg and come out with a misaligned lower limb. I just...

    Hello to all from Steve in the UK. Just looking for some advice and info please. Had my right knee replaced on November 14th because of bone on bone arthritis due to sports injuries. I am 61 years old. I had had a previous ACL replacement a few years ago on same knee but had now developed a...
