Sep 22, 2014 · Chronic knee pain after knee replacement with excessive scar tissue formation in Joint Replacements

I am going through similar with left knee total replacement. Surgery was March 2012. Besides still lots of pain and a very stiff knee I have what my doc calls patella clunk! Look it up….it is real. I have developed scar tissue and when my artificial patella move it gets stuck on the scar tissue. Feels like it locks and when I force movement it is extremely painful. Actually makes a very audible clunk! My right knee is bone on bone. Cannot have any more elective surgery. I have a rare form of hemophilia and as a result of 100\’s of transfusions of FFP have developed inhibitors. Lower back is also very bad…..I have half of a 6th vertebrae and cannot have any kind of injections…..it is getting really tough!

Ditto almost 9 months since surgery…..diagnosis excessive scar tissue. Going through PT now. Surgery not an option!
