There isn’t much to tell. I had my knee replaced 7 1/2 years ago. It wasn’t ever quite right. I had a revision 5 1/2 years ago and had phenomenal improvement. It’s starting to bother me now. If I recall, only one part was replaced as the rest looked okay.

@limpy7 ,
You can have multiple revisions on the same knee.
Sounds like it is time to see your OS to see if anything is has happened. If you are not satisfied with their response, seek a second opinion for your revision TKR. Find a surgeon specializing in Revisions, they have the education and background to determine what is happening with troubled knees. Look for a surgeon specializing in complex joint reconstruction or revisions. They should have no relationship with your present OS, not even golf buddies.
