Jun 11, 2018 · scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

After TKR I did all the pt including water therapy. My knee swelled when exercising in water. I reached 121 but very painful. Now 5 years laterknee still swollen so I ignore it and continue to do my daily biking, golf , gardening. Will never do another TKR if I can help it. That is why I paid the extra cost for stem cells.

I had stem cells on left knee after TKR proved to be painful and 4 years later I have a swollen painful knee. Opted to go with stem cells on left knee 3 years ago and so far I am active, can garden on left knee, golf, bike but no more tennis. A word to the wise do your homework on who you go with . I went with a doctor trained by regenexx. You can look them up as they are located nationwide.
I do use a stem cell knee brace when I am very active. Downside is the price. Insurance covered everything but the stem cell procedure. That is the mri etc. my cost was $7000. I know the hospital where it was done is now offering the procedure to their employees at low cost. I spent 10 days at home watching tv, reading etc.no hospital stay, no pain pills etc. pain free in 10 days. The stem cells were taken from the hip, mixed with my blood. Run away from doctors who buy stem cells. Use your own. As I said, do your home work. Good luck.

I ride my bike a lot as walking becomes painful. When I walk my leg swells and it’s been 5 years. Dr stopped my p/t as was not doing me any good. Just lots of pain. Tend to ignore the pain , ice works somewhat. Golf causes pain and swelling. Comes down to what you are willing to put up with.

Have a friend who did stem cells on both hips through regenexx in toledo, ohio. Research from regenexx was 50-50 chance of working. His procedure was successful.
I had stem cells done on left knee. TKR done on right and did not go well, I was close to one on bone but so far kee with stem cells has worked. I am getting a booster in April as to ward off arthritis. Also had stem cells done on my back. It also worked. Anything to avoid surgery is my motto. I learned of stem cells from Mayo on how it worked on arthritis. Any advice I can give is be careful who does it. Lots of bad actors out there.
