@gator1965 Something is definitely not right for you to be in so much pain for so long. If I recall correctly, the cause of the problem the woman I knew who had pain for two years was that it was from something in the extensions being too long. I really do not remember clearly but I know it was something like that. She did some research and found a top orthopedic surgeon and he was able to fix it. The new surgeon took the knee replacement out and put a whole new one in and she was fine.

Well the surgeon discharged me, he was happy with the flexion being between 96 to 100 degrees. My pain he says is neuropathic, and will take a while to resolve.

Who was the orthopedic doctor, name and location of office

I am having the same problem as gator1965. I had a partial knee replacement in 2017. It never felt right. I was back to the Ortho several time. He did bone scans and felt it, jerked on it and said it was fine. I know something isn't right. It is crooked as could be. It is very obvious and now I have horrible neuropathy pain. The last time he seen me, he said to see a Psychiatrist. I felt awful and humiliated. I keep get prescribed Gabapentin, Lyrica, Cymbalta, and many many others. Nothing helps. I am so miserable, and most other Ortho doctor's won't touch a partial. I am so sorry I ever got it done. I am 61, ride horses, hunt, etc. I can't hardly do anything anymore since the pain and my balance is so awful. The neuropathy has moved into both legs and even burns in my back. I really feel helpless and been to every kind of doctor there is. Kidney, Rheumatism, Blood/Cancer, Neurologist, etc. Same thing, more medications. Anyone else have anything similar happen?
