Revision Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Posted by ladybee @ladybee, May 4, 2020

Has anyone had revision surgery? I have a bruise on the side of my knee that will not go away. It’s not purple or red anymore. It’s just ugly and and dark. After 3 months

Occasionally when I get to the point of pain doing seated heel drag ROM exercises, I hold that position for a minute and then when I release and return my leg to a straight position, I get an acute pain behind my knee. I am surprised that I would get this pain while releasing the ROM tension. Anyone else experiencing this? I an 30 days post-op TKR.

Hello @jrmesser2003 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I would think that the answer to your question would be highly individualized and based on specifics of each person's doctor as well as knee health.

Are you concerned about looking at a 5th revision? If so, what about it is concerning that members can best help with in terms of support?
