My TKR done in October 2013 is giving Me pain and is aching constantly it's now painful on walking. it's never been completely right. The patella has never smoothly moved. I could never do straight leg raises with that knee, because it had to click into place. I went back to see my surgeon for check ups he always assured me it was normal and it should improve but it hasn't. I always had my doubts. After my latest check up with a hospital orthopedic doctor he looked at the exrays And said it will have to come out. I nearly fainted. He told me its best to go back to the surgeon who did it. He also ordered an nuclear medicine scan using radioactive dye that will apparently show up my bones. The surgeon who did my op has now left that hospital and has gone to another hospital. What is the best way to approach this once I get my scan results?? I'm very disappointed and worried. I will have to pay privately to see my surgeon who did this.
