    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    Hi Everyone, I’ve seen Orthos and the verdict is.... 'There is nothing to be done surgically which could have any guarantee of improving knee. Post in tibia is stable.' Due to my RA it is likely to be that making pain worse. Advice is I have to learn not to over do it! Referring to physio (and...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    Thank you - I can’t decide if i am relived X-rays show losening as the symptoms suggest it or if I am a bit devastated that after TKR in 2013 and revision in 2014. But I will carry on regardless - like I say with my RA I prefer to LIVE with it than suffer with it. Thanks again @Josephine...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    Hi @Josephine I would be really greatful if you could let me know your opinion of my X-rays. The report says “increased latency anterior aspect underneath the tibial tray indicative of loosening. Further lutencies noted medically and laterally underneath tibial tray at the cement bone interface”...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    @Cementless yes I am cemented! I have no idea what the OS will say at the appointment, I will be interested in his approach / plan and questions. Because I have now had my Rituxumab infusion I am actually a bit more relaxed as I know I have a wait at lease 5-6 months before anything would be...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    @Cementless - I’m waiting for my OS appt on 7th September so will see what they have to say. I have an oxinium implant so will also be interesting if any comments re allergies are made as I’ve never had allergy testing as such just allergic to metal things (jeans buttons, my glasses and any non...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    I have just realised I haven’t updated - so I was going to be seeing a surgeon who had never done a revision! So after a few phone calls and a sensible but frustrating wait I am now seeing a surgeon very experienced in revisions on 7th September. Because of my RA treatment of Rituxumab...

    Revision TKR 3rd TKR/2nd revision. Would appreciate input<

    Hi @Luv2Garden what a journey you have had. I can’t offer any specific advice I’m afraid - I’m in a similar situation having had L TKR March 2013, revision August 2014 and now waiting for appt (7th Sept) as current one has loosening on X-Ray, pain +++, limited mobility and also had a diagnosis...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    Thank you all - X-ray report says “increased latency anterior aspect underneath the tibial tray indicative of loosening. Further lutencies noted medically and laterally underneath tibial tray at the cement bone interface” So that’s not good - also had X-ray on Wednesday afternoon GP rang on...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    So a new chapter! RA continues to be troublesome - Ritixumab has worked a bit but still needing steroids - all joints are painful wrist splints at night, lots of meds.... never ending RA stuff. But the double whammy (or it maybe the triple) my revision has loosening on the tibial plate...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    Hi @shelli22 so sorry you are still struggling with your knee, I hope you are sorted as quickly and painlessly as possible. Thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately I am yet to find a RA treatment that works yet but last week I started a new treatment a Ritixumab infusion, I have another...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    Hello Everyone, I hope you are all OK. Today my revised knee is 3 years old. I thought I would have a "knees up" to celebrate! :rotfl::rofsign: My Humira seems to be really helping but still on steroids just can't seem to manage without them yet - this Rheumatoid lark is no fun but I think I...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    Hi Everyone - I hope everyone is doing well I have had 26 weeks of Methotrexate, Hydroxychlorquine and steroids with no response to my painful and swollen knees, shoulders, elbows and hands (my OH says holding my hand is like holding a bag of marshmallows- so romantic ) and have finally been...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    Thank you @chestnc RA certainly is a massive spanner in the works! I am currently at week 13 of treatment and still no relief! On Hydroxychlorquine Methotrexate oral prednisolone had 2 x steroid injections, folic acid, calcium &a vitamin D for the RA. My rheumatology nurse says she thinks I am a...

    Revision TKR Loosening, RA ?Second Revision

    Thank you all. I will have a look at the RA thread thanks @Pumpkln Yes please @skigirl a change of name for the thread is probably a good idea - I really thought that after TKR and revision my life could start but with RA thrown in at 45 I'm not in the best place at the moment - but that is...
