Aug 25, 2018 · After knee replacement surgery in Joint Replacements

After months of multiple xrays and a bone scan the doctor determined there is a lack of blood flow to the patella and it is dying / calcifiing in addition to having shifted. It may heal it self, continue to die or worse case crumble. If it is the later then it will need to be replaced. Thankfully there is no infection. Doctor says my wife may have to live with the minor pain, 3 on a scale of 10. Hoping someone else may have similar occurrence and see what they were given as next steps.
Thanks for your feedback!

Glued and stapled. This was my seconded knee replacement. The first on my left knee,2 years ago, has been great with no problems. The scar tissue tear was on my right knee which was replaced last July. This is not a common problem so you shouldn't worry. I'm hoping that someone else who may have the same problem can offer some options or diagnosis from their doctor.

Seven months after my knee replacement surgery I had a small tear in the scar tissue that caused bleeding and swelling about 6 weeks ago. My surgeon said this was not common but he has seen it before with several of his patients. It has occurred again and he said to wait to see if the blood, swelling and pain subside before he will discuss arthroscopic surgery to fix the tear. Has anyone had this occur and what was the outcome?
Thank you. Ken
