2nd TKR aka revision TKR.

Posted by mikeah47 @mikeah47, May 1 10:40am

My first TKR left leg eventually was replaced after bone scan revealed plus my continued nagging my Sports Surgeon something felt odd in the new knee(1year old) a loose implant.
The revised knee implant resulted in a bleeding set back and some 20+ staples to close the wound area .
Since then I have and still am experiencing swelling on the left knee which has been drained of fluid blood mix each 4 to 6 weeks amounts varying 60 to 90 ccs.
I have during the 18 or so months stents. To alleviate bleeding to the inside of my knee 6 iinplants and additional 8 stents by a Specialist.
My knee discomfort is a mix of swellings to the outside ( looks like half grapefruit in size) shooting pains 11 scale.
My newly added Orthopedic Specialist , the 4th in the Group has recently suggested I see a Rheumatologist to get their diagnosis.
Tired of shaking of heads and puzzled expressions from my Group of Sports Specialists , I’m hoping for any help with the exception of a Parrot, eye patch and peg leg. MH
