Sat, Feb 16 11:53pm · Knee replacement with post traumatic osteoarthritis in Joint Replacements

I am just glad to hear about other people and their journey to be able to have great outcomes from surgery and injections. I see the surgeon again on March 28 and with all of your help I am just better informed. I so appreciate everyone sharing their story and suggestions it’s wonderful!

It is amazing that all of you are open and helpful as I felt so alone in this you guys have made this easier knowing all this information you have shared. I was not given a choice on type of injection did not even know there was anything else. I have had three surgeries on the right leg with the rod to get to the point I could walk again. I was non walking for 5 months. The knee does not hurt if I lock it back and walk stiff legged not letting knee move if I walk normal it will have very sharp pains that will take my breath away. Carrying weight like buckets of water is painful no matter what I do.

Thank you for your time and insight it’s something I was hoping I would not face till I was very old. My knee has a great deal of scar tissue and the dr that did the injection commented on how hard he had to push. The knee has never been able to bend all the way since the accident. They were just trying to make sure I would walk again. I have done so much more than anyone thought I would. It’s been 12 years since my accident that got me into this mess. I am hoping knee replacement will go well with that fact I have been told this is a one time thing for me as I don’t have enough bone for a second replacement. Screw that goes through rod at top of knee is very close to the joint.

Thanks for the info I would love to wait till next winter when Farm is very little work as dealing with being unable to do work in the summer is not an option I am afraid. I have horses and they are great. I wish I had no feeling in the knee like I have in the left leg would make this so much easier. When I had surgery on it I was up and at it the next day. It works great.

No the shot did not help at all and it’s been a week. I have drugs for pain and gabepentin for nerves as I have a very big skin graft on the left leg. I can use pain drugs but only when I work outside as they make me itch to beat the band even with antihistamines. To work outside without pain the joint can not move. Uneven ground is difficult. They want me to keep it moving so muscles but I can’t when I work outside. Sleep is hard since when I move it can really be sharp 10 pain.i see surgeon again on March 28.

I have a knee that needs replacement but also do to a severe accident I have a titanium rod from hip to knee. I was given a cortisone injection into the knee capsule and can not have surgery for 3 mos I have been told. I have extreme pain at times in the knee and need to know how to immobilize the knee so I can survive till surgery. I have a farm and must do the work there is no one else. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks
