The odds of this being successful based on my history with this knee are slim. That is not saying I want this to fail either but after 19 surgeries which include 6 total and 1 revision and now I need another odds are not looking good. This may seem negative but I have read and been forewarned by surgeon a hinged knee does not last as long as a regular TKR and yes there are exceptions on here Pumpkin and from what I read online there is a percentage that do well years after so yes fingers crossed this will turn out okay. If it doesn't last but a few years as long as it addresses some of the issues currently having with instability swelling pain tenderness to me that would be worth it vs the way it feels currently.
