My knee has been painful since replacement in June 2018. Although I did have staph infection and was told that healing would be a long time, whatever that is. Been to three other Orthopedic Surgeons and after looking at the knee with swelling and immobility, they all say that it is still infected and they aspirate the knee and send the fluid to the lab. Every report reflects no infection. Then they recommend PT, which has been totally ineffective. I can only sleep on my back, and in that position sleep is only a few hours a night. Side sleeping creates deep intense pain. The other knee is bone on bone with a torn meniscus, and I will tolerate it, because it is a whole lot better than the replaced knee. Since I have been forced to stop all of my fun activities, this stupid knee is also affecting my emotional well being.
