Hi everyone, I need to know if any of you have had a problem with your knee aching, throbbing, and experiencing shooting pain if you try to lift your leg to a certain level, like getting in or out of the bath tub, or if you are sitting, move your leg back, and get another shooting pain? I saw my doctor, he said that the replacements are fine and intact, that he thinks that this is due to sciatic pain I have, due to three discs sitting on top of one another, and pinched nerves at L3,4, and 5, as well as curvature of the spine, but the thing is, my back doesn't really hurt! So, if you've had this, please let me know what it was and how you dealt with it. Thank you!

Hello @Periwinkle - and :welome:

Looking back at your old threads from 2012, I see that you had bilateral knee replacements on May 10, 2012, so I'll put that into a signature for you.

It's a bit difficult to help you without knowing a bit more about your knees. However, I'm going to ask @Josephine , our Nurse Director to advise you. She will probably need to ask you for some more specific details.

Actually, yes your back does hurt! All those symptoms you spoke of are referred pain from your back. Have you ever seen a spinal surgeon? I think that might be your best bet.
