I learn my lesson from my first TKR experience to document everything. I tried to sue my OS for botching my knee In 2012. I went to two highly recommended lawyers who are experienced in joint replacement failures.Timebuster—I love your idea of documenting everything while in hospital.
Well, she's not wrong.do you have any experience with Chondromalacia?
My OS did not put a button behind my patella during surgery. She said my patella was to degenerated to drill holes in it to place the button.
You might think it okay but your pain is directly as a result from not having a patellar button. I think you need to find another surgeon.I have no issues with the kneecap moving around or slipping out of place. But the pain I'm having when I put bear weight on my knee is right behind the kneecap.

That's all great news!So after yesterday appointment with the OS, we can now rule out infection, thank goodness. That's a big, big weight lifted off my shoulders. Bloodwork and x-rays came back clean. I have no swelling, the incision is healing nicely, she checked for any looseness in my knee no issues there, and since my last visit with my OS at week 6 my ROM has improved from 100/0 to 120/0. All indications that I should be having a good recovery.
That sounds like a logical plan.The bottom line, she feels the pain I'm having stems from having weak muscles and tendons since there is no other obvious reason for my pain. She recommended I start physical therapy right away and in six weeks if I don't feel any improvement to make another appointment with her and we'll go from there.
