    Hinged Knee Biomet

    I am having a revision on my left knee, on Sept 17, I had a Total knee done in 2005, was poorly done, it looks like a pac-man knee and the Dr cut my lateral ligament and my fibula is either broke or eroded, I have lost 180 lbs and exercising to be able to have a better outcome and success with this surgery. My one question is does anyone have a Hinged knee and is it stiff? I limp because of the mess the Dr made of my knee and I just found out last year it was crooked, it is now time to get it fixed....

    total knee replacement

    I'm having a left total knee replacement. The left leg is longer than the right leg can the left be shortened during the surgery? I've been told it should be adjusted at the time of surgery by a foot doctor. My surgeon who is doing the surgery says it's nothing to be concerned about. I feel he is dismissing my concerns. I would like to hear from some one regarding this issue. Over the years I've had 2 hip and 1 knee replacement.

    Revision question

    I recently went thru a revision knee replacement. Originally having a partial, now a TKR. Post surgery, pain could not be managed and after a CT was done, found that the alignment of the stem is misaligned in my tibia and also caused a fracture. Is this common? What long term effects should i expect. Asking my surgeon would give the impression of lawsuit, but i just need honest answers.

    Hip and Knee Replacement

    I have seen an orthopedic clinician who would like to refer me for the above procedures. The only thing is, I have never had my knee x rayed, and the pain I get in the lower spine area is not in the groin where the hip is, but on the outer area of my thigh where the pelvis is. I would like more investigation before committing myself. I wondered how I would be best doing this, and whether an MRI may be available

    What does osteoarthritis in the knees feel like?

    I’m concerned I’m developing OA in my knees. 1 knee has been hurting intermittently for a year. The other just a few days. The last few days they have really bothered me. It mainly hurts on the inner part of the knee. If I don’t move for awhile they start aching really bad. They feel better when I keep them moving unless I’m doing high resistance excercise. For example I will up the resistance on my bike and ride up and down a hill. When I stand on the bike during this they hurt. Sitting With my....

    Hip osteoarthritis

    I have osteoarthritis in my left hip (moderate) which never caused me any problem until 3 mos ago I did some leg lifts and splits. Progressively I get worse everyday. Thinking I had pulled ligaments or muscle I expected it to heal. Now the hip pain is intolerable & I walk with cane and can barely lift right leg. Did my exercises cause this?
