Femur Component of Knee Replacement Loose
My knee replacement is barely a year old. I have had pain that has limited my standing to 10 minutes and walking to 30 for 10 months. At first, I was told I had excess scar tissue and had a second surgery to remove that. However the same standing and pain persisted. Then I was told I had nerve damage. Now I’m being told that the femur component is not secured to the bone behind my knee and there is a gap where bone cement should be. Has anyone else had a loose femur component? My understanding is it’s mostly the tibia component that becomes loose.
What does a revision to a loose femur component entail?
Also – how would bone cement behind your knee just not be there?
