You still have that open sore on your incision. Is it itchy?


No it is not. it just is there hard. Heals up and then like flakey. Weird.

Hi Angel

Mmmm it looks rather swollen

Celle is right, best for Josephine to have a look xxx

I'm not surprised you're feeling down right now but please remember you are not alone here x the pain, long recovery and little explanation is enough to get anyone down. I know it's easier said than done but think about when all this goes right eventually. The fun you'll have with your kids again, getting back into being able to feeling more able to do stuff and wanting to do stuff. It will come it's just taking time ((((((big hug))))) x

Love Nana moon 27 xxx


I tell you it's been a hassle. I think I'm doing good then boom here we go again. Time oh how I wish it was over and I felt good.

I know that I can't wait until I am pain free and can enjoy walking. As I say I'm getting a bit heavy. And oh it's making me down to.

Thanks! Just sometimes I want to give up.:: and I set and cry. But what next is all I have to say.

Doc S I assume is done with me. I know other day his nurse said oh we can't keep calling on the metal peace. We have never had this problem,the knees we do is never trouble. Cause I could not pay for the blood test. Just the way I fill. Like there brush me off.

But there has to be a reason I'm keeping swelling. Yeh I know it can last up to a year. But it's in pockets. Just odd to me. The continue of pop irks me. Xxx

Angel, have you ever asked what metals your current implant is made of? Is it cobalt/chromium, titanium alloy, or something else? The reason I ask: I was reading another member's thread that mentioned his "two golf ball sized lumps", which reminded me of your recently posted photo. This member was diagnosed as allergic to a metal component (nickel) of his first implant and has since been revised to one that is nickel-free. I thought this information might be relevant to your case. I hope you are having a pleasant, pain-free day.

Thanks for the comment. I know. It's awful. Haha I want to be the lucky one with no pain. No pop and can do all kinds stuff with out limitations.

But I guess God is giving me time. But patience is not in my book. I get so mad.

What a terrible ordeal you are going through. I looked at your videos and pictures. It certainly does not seem right after this many months. Hope your new OS can figure it out for you.

Thanks for comment. It don't seem right to me, it don't feel right to me, but what can I do. When I walk I can literally feel it moving in there, I think it's loose somewhere. I am so unstable that is pathetic. But doctors have to go through the chain of command where had the partial knee replacement and then convert to full by urevision. So I guess one day somebody will figure it out LOL. But in the meantime, I hope they figure it out before something happens and I end up falling and hurting myself. I don't want to walk very far distances, because when I do get to week and I got to stop 1 million times. LOL. Perio but in the meantime, I hope they figure it out before something happens and I and up falling and hurting myself. I don't want to walk very far distances, because when I do it gets week and I got to stop 1 million times. LOL.

I don't get on here much, but I hope you had an OK recovery. And you're doing well. I will try to go over your thread and take a look at it xx
