I appreciate everyone's comments, advice, and experiences. I will have surgery on the 28th to remove the screws and file 2 bone spurs that have developed on my knee cap. I'll keep you posted. Thanks everyone.

That sounds horrible I'm so sorry for your struggle. My doc is waiting until almost a year after surgery to remove my screws because the bones should be fused by then. Your surgery is much more intense. I hope they get it fixed as soon as medically possible. Good luck to you.
I had a total knee reconstruction, not a replacement. My MPFL was replaced with a piece of my hamstring, bone marrow was harvested, holes were drilled in my knee cap, torn cartilage was cut out, the tibia was cut and moved over and secured with 3 screws. Recently there has been a new kind of pain in the tibia. I was wondering if anyone can describe how it feels if the screws are backing out? I am having them removed in a few months but this pain is constant and limiting mobility.
