I'm not exactly sure what he meant by abnormal blood work. No I don't think that he have done any testing for metal and cement allergies, but I am going to ask him when I go back. No I have not tried myofascial release and/or acupuncture. I don't think I can deal with the acupuncture because I can't handle the needles I hear that it really hurts. I will check out the links that you sent me thanks everyone for your advice and comments.

@lynnwade54 – No acupuncture doesn't hurt. I hate needles too, but it doesn't even feel like a pinprick. After both of my TKR's, I did acupuncture to help reduce the inflammation and swelling. It really helped, and I've read of others who had the same result. Now, I'm not saying it would help with severe scar tissue build up, but it did help me recover my ROM more quickly. Will you let us know when you learn what the doctor says?
