Apr 30, 2018 · Scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

Unfortunately, this was not recommended. Both respected world renound specialists i had him see indicated very adamantly to “not allow anyone else to touch. He must learn to live this way.” However, I am concerned as of recent that this situation is now beginning to impact his cardiovascular health. Has anyone seen a CV component while going thru these stressful episodes of trying to force or “unstick” the scar tissue?

This is very similar to my Father’s experience! He is now 4yrs post op TKR and continues to struggle daily with pain and generalized discomfort. The only relief he gets is thru movement- walking and exercise bike however one cannot be doing this 24hrs a day! Scarring has been said to be his issue as well. Early on he went thru the manipulation efforts and consistent PT, temp treatments etc. We have consulted several doctors in the last 4yrs and all indicate that nothing can be done as his body will continue producing this scar tissue and he must just get used to living this way. They offer no alternatives or possibilities. Is this the message all are getting? It just sounds so unreasonable from Medical professionals in this day and age! Anyone have any suggestions or success elsewhere? My father is now 73 and was a marathon runner – ran 24 NYC marathons so certainly no stranger to pain, dedication and sacrifice. Hard to see him in this situation – he is a prisoner to his knee – with no pathway for hope! 🙁
