Thank you for your advice. My surgeon's office is on Long Island in NewYork, but he operates in NYC. He will see patients in NYC on days he operates, but this is very inconvenient - to drive into the city, park walk....especially when in a lot of pain. I did this once (took a car service!) and he never came to see me - sent a colleague. I did see a doctor who specializes in infectious disease a while back with a different issue. If you could refer me to someone, i would be grateful! My surgeon's attitude leaves much to be desired but I thought I should see him first. Thank you so very much@TKRsharon Welcome back to BoneSmart! You will notice I merged your latest post into your original recovery thread. That way we can see your history in one place.
From reviewing your original thread I would say you have certainly had some problems with this knee. I would suggest you as your GP to refer you to an specialist in infections. This isn't the first time you have had a problem with the knee. Time to find someone who can help you get this resolved.
Who are you seeing currently and which hospital. We may be able to help you find someone.
Thank you so much Jamie! His name is Scott Marwin. I appreciate your help@TKRsharon .... I can help you find a revision specialist. Please tell me the name of the surgeon you're currently seeing so I can do a little research on him as well. I agree that his handling of your case has not been the best and it is time to seek out someone else who will be more responsive. Infection can happen years after surgery and the story told by LaJudes illustrates how sneaky joint infections can be.
Can you post a photo of your knee so we can take a look?
