Any TKR graduates out there with noisy knee?

@ellerbracke When you said your PT said that 50% of the people with TKRs complain of this I wondered if mine do and I just didn't hear them since I have a hearing problem, so I asked my husband. He said mine do not click. I wonder if your therapist inflated that percentage to make you feel better. I have a PT appointment on Thursday for my hip bursitis so I will try to remember to ask him if he has heard of that much with other patients.

Please do. I’ve known my PT guy for almost a decade, and he is pretty much straightforward. Either the local OS’s all have lousy knees (not their own, the ones they put into people), which is unlikely, or the reference was to people who have some issues with some noise with movements with their artificial knees. I basically asked the therapist how many of his patients had audible noise in their knee post TKR without specifying if all the time, with all movement, or any other specifics. Perhaps his clientele is older and stiffer than average (I’m not, at least not stiff). Not sure.

JK – meant to ask how the hip bursitis is going. We both had it come up pretty much the same time, and I have more or less fixed it with exercises, although it may only have been part bursitis, part other issues. Since cortisone shots don’t do diddly for me.
