I am about 3 1/2 months (surgery date was Jan 29 2014)out from tkr of the right knee and am awaiting another surgery for a bone cyct in my LEFT foot which is very painful at the moment and seems to be stalling my progress with my knee. I still limp quite a bit and am very unsteady although I can go up and down stairs I still go with my tkr leg first and am not strong enough to go up and down with out a hand rail or as a “normal” person would would handle stairs and I get tired out when walking a lot (use those electric carts if I going grocery shopping etc) and my back hurts from limping. I am still on pain meds (generic percocet 5/325 as they recently cut it back down and I take 1 or 2 as needed – usually having to take 2 still) and hate that when I call for refills the nurse always says you are way out from your surgery date and shouldn’t need them (its none of her business) and seems to get annoyed about me calling (I get refills about 10 days) I mostly need them at night and before phys therapy really… It is that the skin is so sensitive and that I cannot touch my knee or even have a sheet rest on it without it hurting so much it wakes me up at night and just aches. Plus as others have said my knee gets hot especially on outer side of knee (Doc says that is normal and to use ice as needed which I do) I do believe that my left ankle pain is hindering my progress (I limp because of both – knee feeling “weak” and ankle pain)and unfortunately after that surgery at the end of this month I will be in a wheelchair for 8 weeks because my right knee is not able to withstand me using crutches (won’t be able to weight bear on left foot at all after surgery)and I tried practicing with crutches but right knee just isn’t strong enough to support me on it’s own…I will still go to phys therapy while recovering from ankle surgery but will do my exercises laying down to keep my knee strong..I love my Doc and he has been great but his help is who is annoying me about my meds… So glad I am not the only one as I was thinking maybe something was wrong with me for still needing pain meds. Would LOVE to not need them and plan to tell my Doc about how his help has been with me regarding it as that is something between him and I not them! I do also still have swelling and cannot bend my knee totally (I can if I am sitting and force it to 90 degrees) but can’t like go down stairs etc…and like another poster I cannot let my leg “hang” if sitting I must have it supported (am short too)…I don’t have the pain I had BEFORE surgery which I am thankful for but this slow progress is driving me crazy!! I originally was supposed to go back to work (must lift 50 pounds steadily) and am glad I have this other surgery because there is no way I could work like this right now..and this stalling progress has me concerned…

I have had lower back pain for about 8 months now and my knees have started to hurt when I squat down, and my neck hurts. Some days I cannot even move it from side to side. I have recently gone to the Dr’s and he did some work on me trying to put things back in order. When he did my lower back area I wanted to scream it hurt so bad. He took some xrays and he said everything was fine. He also then gave me a shot in my lower back and it has not helped. And my lower back pain is worse now. This was 4 days ago. He also put me on prednisone. And i m having an allergic reaction. He did take blood as well to test for rherumitoid authritis and it came back negative. Having a MRI done on Monday but he is puzzled as to what is wrong with me. It hurts to walk and sit as well. And hurts to press on certain areas. I just want some answers. 🙁 Please help! Thank you!

I had a knee replacement 10 years ago , because I was bone on bone! Every since have my knee replaced I have had a Manipulation , surgery to remove scare tissue . Fast forward about four years still in a lot of pain with swelling , I ended up having a revision because something came loose ! Still a lot of pain and swelling , Four months after my revision I had to have a hip replacement all on the same side because my knee still had a lot of pain . So here we are 2017 my Dr retired and my new dr told me that the implants where in wrong ! Had another knee replacement in 2016 ! Still in a lot of pain and still very swollen in fact haven’t been working because it swells so bad when I stand or walk!

Lolol..well if "misery loves company" can be helpful then I'm glad but it usually isn't such a great thing. However, it does help to vent and talk to others who know you aren't exaggerating your pain. I wish we could help to heal each other...then I would really be thankful. Maybe we will huh? We will keep each other informed and hopefully we can find ways to ease the pain. My Dr won't give pain meds!!! I think I should own stock in a the Makers of Advil bc that's what I take all the time...it doesn't take the pain but it does seem to round the pointed corners sometimes...just barely takes the edge off. We will talk more my friend.....

Once I have all the above information I put together a differential diagnosis and present it to the patient.  Like I mentioned at the top, sometimes the problem is simply being incompletely healed and more time is needed.  Other possibilities include poor rehabilitation, cartilage defects, sub chondral edema from degeneration/arthritis (common), poor patella mechanics, poor range of motion, AVN (rare), IT band syndrome, pes bursitis, intra-articular ganglions, plica bands/synovitis, persistent tear that was incompletely treated (unusual).  Other problems that I also think about include rheumatoid disease, hip arthritis, and neurological disease such as a L4 radiculopathy.   I then spend a few minutes writing down my diagnostic plan and the treatment plan.  Patients appreciate it when you write down the plan as well as “the next step”.   For example I might say “lets try a steroid injection today, more therapy aimed at improving quad flexibility and 10 days of NSAIDs.  If this does not work in 6 weeks I will recommend hyaluronate injections”
