Squeaking Total Left Knee?????
« on: October 04, 2005, 06:13:37 AM »
Today 10/03/05 my Total Left Knee that was done on 8/02/04 started squeaking so now have a mouse in my knee? Have heard they some times pop but have not heard of any that squeak. have noticed my TLK has been geting stiffer and stiffer seams more swollen also (not red or hot like with infection )Please ,Please if anyone has heard of a squeaking Total Knee let me know.The only thing I have done different is allot of extra walking while husband was in hospital he is now home but the stiffness remains was having pain behind the knee to the outside part of the back of the knee?It seems to have gotten better but now the knee sqeaks which I think is odd.Papbouv

Maybe you have a lot of extra fluid in it if you have been walking a lot more then you usually do.
If things not settles down with iceing and elevate and rest maybe you should call and ask.
Good luck to you.
Hope your husband is feeling better.

I agree with Nettan, RICE is in order.  I would also check out the total knee replacement section down under the arthriris section. The people that post there are about to have or have had a TKR.

Good luck
