This is the wildest thing ever. No idea what is next… all I've known for the past two years 2 years is PAIN- I was mugged and beaten unconcoious with broken and cracked lower spine vertebrae when in my late 20s- -I was young and strong and healed quickly. Never had any further problems… Now 25 some years …Maybe an answer and a horrible repercussion.

Thanks for asking Debra, I'm quite sad and so frustrated -groundhog day over and over! This tuesday MRI-a piece of cake, however the 10 of October is the EMG- apparently , if I can stand it, a 4 hr ordeal- Any one experienced this?

Sadly, I've been through it all,TKR, MUA ,hours of painful PT with only 68 degree bend( 2018) Now 2019 New ortho Dr , revision, hours of painful Pt, hip replacement, MUA,more screaming ,crying PT still only 68 degrees-finally went to pain management specialist-exploring the possibility that this is all emanating from L3 and L4 nerve damage- MRI and Emg next…omg

Sorry to tell you-But…My experience with my ongoing healing from knee revision has been like groundhog day–here i am going thru All this again-pain yes-pretty much the same as TkR, trying to get a better bend I was struggling at 78 degrees when the Dr. said-Oh time for that hip replacement-and while we're in there-why not a MUA-that bend isn't good enough… So here i am with double problems surgery was July 22 and the new pt today said-You should have seen me the day after your surgery-You're only at 55 degrees- You are so far behind… I said i could hardly get out of bed for the first week Just to use the bathroom. He forced my knee and told me to ice ice… Very daunting and pain is ever present and horrible, while they say- no more pain meds or you-we don't want you to become an addict- here have a script for meloxicam- which I am finding very ineffective for severe pain. Hope you have better trip than the one I'm on : {

That is not the case in my state( Fl.)-after being failed miserably by original ortho surgeon- I received and paid dearly for two other opinions from other surgeons, Chose one- finally went thru revision and ultimately hip replacement as well- a long painful healing but I would Never let original incompetent Dr. touch me again!

Its a bewildering situation to be in- I empathetically connect with so many of you all. I'm in week 2 recovery after a hip replacement and MUA -my fifth procedure around my knee, all the time trying to stave off the ever encroaching scar tissue and the never-ending pain story. I have my mm supplies and for me it helps a bit but does not eradicate this unnerving buzzing, stabbing ache. A CPM(continuous passive motion) device is my beauty rest companion placed for the foreseeable future on the other side of my bed. in my 2 year journey I have found this forum very good therapy for mind and soul. Knee? well thats still a problem.
More later…. looks like the elusive sleep fairy is dropping by.
