    Here's a clip from 1-2 months ago, so might be a little worse now. Might need to turn up the volume. Would this defentinly be bone on bone? It doesn't hurt to much right away, it's like 3 mins later when the pain kickes in. Maybe I'm just getting used to the pain lol.



    My pain management dr said it's bone on bone rubbing, I just don't get I recently had 2 surgeries on this knee, why woukd it be bone on bone alteady?

    Thank you for any in put

    I can hear some crepitus, @Mr.ink , but I don't think that's absolutely diagnostic of bone on bone.

    An X-Ray would be more help.

    Do you have an X-Ray you can post, for @Josephine , our Nurse Director, to look at?
    A few tips on posting xrays

    It certainly could be bone on bone. Arthritis is a sneaky little devil and sometimes having multiple surgeries can accelerate the arthritic process of cartilage loss. As Celle says, though, the real indication of what's going on will come with some xrays.

    @Celle thank you for the reply. I unfortuantley don't have a picture of the xray at the time.

    @Jamie ohh ok. Yeah I've had 2 surgeries on each knee, one was a patella realignment, the other was hardware removal because of my issues.

    But yeah I definitely understand it's hard to tell without seeing the xray.

    It's good that your surgeon is sending you to a specialist. Do let us know what the MRI shows and what the specialist says, won't you?

    @Celle, of course I Will!

    I'm just hoping the specialist isnt a waste of time. Since its 8 hour round trip. I've done everything so far (more surgeries, shots, pt) so I finally want to get something that will work.

    Well, it's not. It's the sound of gristle. If you've ever pulled apart a joint of meat, in the last few stages of it coming apart, you will hear a noise very similar to that. Our joints are, after all, partly gristle.

    Hi Josephine, when you say the last few stages of it does that mean before it goes bone on bone?

    If you read what I said carefully, you will see I am describing pulling a joint of meat apart!

    So I had the MRI today. Just gotta wait till the surgeon calls back to have me come back in for results.

    The specialist called today. The surgeon that deals with knee replacement is actually an hour further (5 hours away one way) and is booked until January 29th 2018....
    So I have to talk to my surgeon about that. I can't wait that long and deal with that ride back after surgery.

    IT is important that you have the best surgeon - one who is skilled at doing knee replacements and does at least a hundred every year.
    More than any other factor, the skill of your surgeon is the one thing that has the most e\influence on the success of a knee replacement.

    Some people have travelled distances like yours and chosen to stay in a hotel for a while after discharge from hospital, so they can have the best surgeon.
