Hello, I am not new to the forum. I previously was a regular on the recovery forum after my 2010 TKA. Short story: lots of pain, arthrofibrosis, MUA, arthroscopic lysis of lesions, and finally decent range of motion . . . but the TKA has excess laxity, it's been stiff due to a significant effusion the entire 8 years of its life, and now there appears to be loosening. The radiology report from recent X-rays says, "Right knee arthroplasty aligned anatomically. There is a joint effusion present. There is some radial lucency adjacent to the arthroplasty tibial component, both posteriorly and laterally, and the possibility of loosening need be considered. Bones appear to be somewhat demineralized." I'm a super healthy person (no drinking, no smoking, eat right, exercise, etc.) The demineralized part, I take personally. Or maybe that's a normal response? Your thoughts @Jamie? This is what I get for choosing an orthopedist whose practice is close and who people say they like and not checking his experience level. I have appointments in the next 3 weeks to see Dr. Andrew Freiburg at Mass. General in Boston, and Dr. Gonzalez Della Valle at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC. I'm putting my thoughts together for all the logistics that would be involved in having a surgery far from my home in Maine. In the meanwhile, I'm back working out at the gym with a general toning program I learned from a personal trainer and doing everything I can to keep a positive frame of mind, because underneath, I'm terrified of going through my hell from 2010 and 2011 again.
