Second operation has failed - pain as bad as ever
« on: September 05, 2010, 10:47:26 AM »
It is now 10 weeks since surgery was done in June 2010, this was a revision TKR procedure necessary because the first TKR in June 2009 failed to eradicate pain.  It is now as painful as ever and gets worse during the day usually being very severe by bedtime. I excercise by walking most days which does increase the pain intensity level. Docs view is that I still must "give it time". Has anyone had a similar experience ? What was the end result ? Is more surgery likely ?
