Painful grinding after BTKR
« on: February 10, 2014, 06:11:30 AM »
I am 48 years old and am 6 weeks post op from BYKR. Since surgery I have had grinding pain in both knees (worse in one)  pain from surgery went away much faster than I anticipated. Started exercising immediately after surgery. ROM has returned fast, but when I have my weight on the knees to make a normal walking stride the knees grind audibly/painfully. My OS suggested pivot type knee. Has anyone ever heard of this? Or have this type? I did have X-rays done a few weeks ago, and OS said they were normal. I have had to walk on these everyday. Not one stride he'll to toe without grinding and getting worse.
