I had Total Knee Replacement on May 10th 2007, My knee was had gone 4 ortho scope surgery in the past. Thiis is my left knee. What I am concern about is that, I get real strong pain on the left side and in the quid muscle. Some times it feels like someone is beating it with a hammer........Has anyone had this happen to them? Also, I need some encouragement bad. I'm use to getting out and helping my husband around the house and yard, and running my own erruns and I cant do it. I try to do house work, but the knee swells worse then it was before I started........ I go to Pt twice a week, and I work on my stuff at home, but darn't I guess :-[I just expect mircles and be able to do a lot on my own.....I know some people have had this surgery, and in 4 - 6 weeks they are running around great.
Oh I have a heart condition, that reqiures me to have a Pace Maker and I have some spinal issues, back problems, so the doc said I will not heal as fast. Please some one advice me if this is so true on the healing. Oh by the way. I have a great orthopedic surgeon.
