Hi Jacky,

You really need to push to see your surgeon. Things don't sound right.

If you have arthritis there are a number of things that can help such as medication, learning to manage your pain better and doing gentle exercise. Makes me angry when medicos say there is nothing they can do when you have arthritis.

Let us know how you go at physio tomorrow.

hi silk
i have tried every pain killer going for the arthritis they say there going to give me new knees!!!

i think i could cope with anytghing if there wasnt so much pain!
they gave me ORAMOTPH  its good but ...
and ive had  TARNDOL (sry for my crap spelling) that gave me bad headahes
 like i said every pain killer out there!!

Hey Jacky,

I agree with silk, make as much noise as you have to and see the surgeon.  Something is definatly not right.  Your PT should be doing things for swellling and pain too not just exercises.  Too bad the meds are bothering you.  You may need to work out some pain relief with your GP.  Good luck.

hi silk and milly
well i went to my physio yesterday, and i asked how i was doing and about the swelling,and pain
she said im doing fine and everyone is diffrant nothin to worry about, if i just ice and put the leg up (which i already  do ) the swelling should come down!  :-\ telling me somthing i alrteady no !
She says there is nothin worng and i was worrying for nothin.
Even the ORAMOTHP didnt work last night well it did for an hour ish
i was up and down all night (4/5 times)
In the end i got in the bath (2.30 ) and fell asleep on the setee
 Going to see my GP next, but i think its going to be a waste of time

 :(

Hi Jacky,

Sorry to hear that you are not getting answers. I do agree with your physio though that different people progress differently.

Is there any way you can contact your OS directly ?

Maybe if your GP is not happy they can contact your OS. When are you going to see your GP ?

I have had subluxation on both knees, has happened since jr high, I am now 48. I recently had lateral release on my right knee, my surgery was May 26th. I am still really weak on my right side and extremely apprehensive about my knee subluxing due to not having any muscle strength in my quads especially my VMO. I am going to PT, but really just working on getting my leg to straighten and gait walk. What is everyone doing for exercises to strengthen the VMO. I so don't want to do this again on my left knee.
Thanks. I am so glad I found this site. Pam
