knee replacement allergy

Posted by denver @denver, Fri, Mar 15 10:15am

I’ve had constant pain since my TKR 6/17. I’ve now found I’m allergic to cement and moderate allergy to nickel. The KR is coming loose, and is unstable. I need a custom made joint that will take 10 mos to make. Has anyone gone through this?

I have severe allergies to gluten, nightshades. After a failed TKR, I've been tested with allergies to the bone cement and possibly nickel. Now I need to find a surgeon who can do this type of revision. It's been a nightmare for 2 years of constant pain, swelling. Now the hardware is coming apart.

Hi @denver and welcome to Connect. You may have noticed I moved your post to your original post about being allergic to your knee replacement so that your discussion with others can be found in one place. Simply click VIEW & REPLY in your email notification to find your post.

I wanted to introduce you to fellow Connect member @gutthookd who has mentioned allergies to knee replacement's in the past and may be able to offer you support.

Back to you @denver, is there anything you can do that will limit the pain while you wait for the custom made joint?

I would like to know if anyone who has had knee replacement still has burning pain after 25 days?

@auntb1947 I had pain for about six weeks that actually brought tears to my eyes. Then it suddenly went away! I have been great ever since.

@denver Would I be correct in assuming you are in Denver? If you were close to Boston I would recommend my surgeon. I have not had that problem but I suspect he would be a good one for this type of problem. He was one of the developers of the Conformis knee, and he really is tops.
