Thank you so much moderator!  This is excellent!  I know it will be of great help to all of us who have found specialists and help here.  There is such a need for this.  I hope we can get more Doctors to contribute!

Dear Moderator,

I appreciate all of the information compiled here.  I have passed it on to my OS.  I am trying to gain further information.  I only discovered I was suffering from AF after multiple TKR's because of a diagnosis of infection.  My C reactive protein and CED rates were high, but no cultures ever produced an infection. 

I have been dealing with constant inflammation, heat, and limited ROM (<50 degrees) since the first TKR.  My third (3rd) OS finally put the TKR back together and removed AF.  I went immediately into PT 3 days after surgery.  I spent every day on a CPM or at PT 5 times a week.  My knee reacted differently, as now it appears I am growing bone (Heterotropic Ossification HO) in my soft tissue.  The AF seems to have been relieved by the HO?

I can find no mentions of HO on this site.  Do you have any suggestions?
