I had a full knee replacement. Ive had 4 procedures

I had a full knee replacement. Ive had 4 procedures on this knee since Dec. ive had 12 surgeries in 5 years from my back, my sinuses, my knees, etc. i do have hypertension. I’m on meds. After my surgery, getting home, I passed out, my bp dropped so low and it happened again 2 weeks later. Now my bp is high, higher than its ever been. Yes, I’m overweight and plan on working on this now that I can walk again. My cardiologist has given me more meds. This morning, my bp was a little high but my heart feels like its beating really fast. Could it be anxiety or what? Ive had all kinds of tests but have been told my heart is fine.

My mom is looking for replacement of her knee. Is there a procedure that is cushion vs. total replacement? She had one knee done 2 yrs ago and is still having problems. The other one needs to be done and she is skeptical about another total replacement.

I have been advised that I will need a knee replacement. My doctor has suggested that I may benefit from Synvisc injections. I have been told by people who have had them that they are very painful and don t work. Is this true? Also, I have a pacemaker and my booklet says that I can t have an MRI. However, some of the preferred replacement procedures use an MRI for proper fitting of the replacement. Please advise. Thank you.
