Nerve block

Posted by healthtalk @healthtalk, Apr 1 9:49am

I had knee replacement done about 15 months back.
I have sharp pain in the knee. Range of motion is limited. Actually I am worse situation than before my surgery. I have been directed to pain management dr and nerve block is recommended
Has anyone had this done
Thanks for your help

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Bones, Joints & Muscles Support Group.

I would go to different ortho surgeon to have replacement evaluated

Nerve block is done by pain management dr not Ortho surgeon
Still checking if that is right procedure for me.

Have you had post surgical imaging?

Yes X-ray and MRI

Ascertain that you are not experiencing incorrect positioning of of the replacement joint. Since you have an MRI you might want to send it to a different institution for a second opinion. A nerve block in the interum might be helpful and wouldn't hinder your broader search. It is the restrictive movement that would make me want additional information.
