Hello, I have read many stories and posts over the years but have never posted. After only 2 years my left TKR failed. The wound had problems healing from the start. I also noticed a pain every now and then that would blast through my knee when vacuuming after it healed. (My right TKR has never hurt since it healed.) Other than that occasional pain - nothing until recently. I moved last fall. My arches started falling after I moved. My feet were very painful as well as my groin on the right side, strange I thought. My knee started to get sore and around February I noticed it bowing in the left knee. I also started hearing grinding in my right hip. Soon after I had some of the worse pain I ever felt below my left knee- accompanied by horrible pain in my right hip making walking to the bathroom pretty much impossible without my Mom’s walker! I moved from outside Atlanta to help my mom in Pennsylvania (90 minutes east of Pittsburgh) in the mountains. I already seen one surgeon who would only xray knee or hip not both. He waltzed in saying I need a hip replacement, going over my BMI, saying I need to drop 20 pounds before I’m eligible. I saw no xray so I asked for a copy in case I go back to Atlanta by the time I lose 20 pounds. He threw the biggest fit...stating if I’m not going have him as a hip surgeon to not bother making an appointment to come back for my knee. Dr Katz in Johnstown, PA, He’s well known for being rude to EVERYONE. I’m reporting him. Keep your parents away from him. Fast forward to new surgeon. Got a shot in my hip that really helped the burning pain but when I go from sitting to a standing position. My hip has been screaming with pain. My knee doesn’t hurt 24/7 but when it hurts, I can’t walk on it period. So all that to ask if anyone had a knee replacement/revision surgery with a bad hip? I'm 52, a widow with a 9 year old son. Came here to help my 78 year old mother but she’s helping me at the moment.
