I had bi- lateral TKR 18 months ago and I am still experience extreme pain. I am unable to walk properly which effect my hip, back and IT band. I have burning sensation in my knee caps and the medial aspect of my left knee fasticulates and I get a sudden sharp jabbing pain in that area. Blood work was done to rule out infection. My doctor thought I had arthrofibrous and five months ago I had arthroscopic surgery to release the adhesion in and around the implant. This surgery was done using a shaver and it was not successful. As I now understand it, using a shaver causes too much bleeding, which in turn causes swelling, pain and more adhesions. Please, can you advise me. My doctors are with the Cleveland Clinic but they claim they haven t had a patient with my symptoms.

Hello, I had tkr over I month ago. Last week the hamstring area behind my knee became bruised and painful after doing physical therapy working my hamstring muscles. Physical therapist and orthopedic MD said that I tore my hamstring. Now I am noticing a rash developing all over the leg that I had their procedure on. Rash is worse behind my knee in area where my hamstring is bruised. What do you think the rash means in all of this?

I had a TKR about 4 mo. ago. I recovered remarkably well with the ability to bend my knee to 122 degrees within 1 month post surgery. About a month ago I suddenly began hearing a sound like velco ripping open when straightening the knee from a sitting to standing position. I is a little painful when it happens and sometimes, depending on the position of the knee, it hurts badly. I had an appt with my OS today but they called and postponed it. Can you give me an idea what may be causing this?
