Pain after Total Knee Replacementgreenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread
Hi, I had a total knee replacement 11/22/04. After 11 operations, plus a partial knee replacement on 2/04. I am having severe pain while walking and sitting. I also have a bakers cyst on the back of the knee, about the size of a golf ball. Can anyone tell me if this pain is going to stick around for the rest of my life, or will it fade away. Thanks

I had total knee replacement several years ago. It was about 6 mos before I was pain-free with normal activities. I still cannot kneel on it without major discomfort. That makes some activities nearly impossible - such as getting up and down from the ground/ floor/ beach/ wherever. I do not use a cane although my dr suggested that I might manage some things better if I had a stick with me. Perhaps someday I will. Meanwhile, reduction in activity has aggravated my weight problem(s) and I grow fearful of losing stamina - particularly the kind needed to do travel that involves lots of stairs, touring museums, catching taxis, shifting luggage about etc etc. Growing old is not for sissies.

Hi, i had a partial knee replacement on oct. 13th 2004. To date i still have pain. Everytime i walk or stand up from a chair. So far its not so good - but i am hopefull.
Regarding your situation - i had a friend that was in severe pain with a bakers cyst until she got it removed. I guess you can't tell if the knee replacement is successful until you get the bakers cyst taken care of.
But for you and myself its still too early to judge whether the partial was a success or not. I do feel better than i did just two weeks ago.
I will consider it a success if i can stop limping and walk without pain.
I am 55 and have had knee pain since my early 20's from an exercise injury.
So good luck to you and me!
