I am really sorry to hear about all that you went through and even sorrier to hear that the revision did not come through for you either. You are a really tough cookie and deserve a lot of credit for your courage and perserverance. Those of us who have gone through it know how challenging recovery can be when it is successful, and also how frustrating it can be to hit a plateau. Those of us lucky ones were able to break through our plateaus. I wish you all the best with you TKR and hope you are able to find relief in the meantime. Your experience, although negative, will be incredibly valuable to those deciding on this surgery. They are fortunate to have your candor to temper some of the success stories and give a reality check and honest perspective on the "what if" scenario. For what its worth, I agree, you had to try... and, I think that is very brave of you.
