I have a big problem, had my right knee replaced in 2004. Then in 2008 had the knee replaced again because the first replacement loosened up and was moving up an down. After 2nd replacement, my knee will not bend past 85 degrees?? It just locks up, will not move past that one point? My doctor doesn't know whats wrong so he says. Is there anyone out there that might know something. I can't neal down or walk up or down stairs. In Oct. of 2010 had my left knee replaced, had a maniplation done 6 weeks later, knee went from 80 degrees bend to 101, that's where I'm stuck at right now after 12 therapy's. now you know my whole story, does anyone have any info for me.

It is a crying shame that the OS doesn't tell you what to expect before, during and after total knee replacement. I had total knee replacement in july of 10. The doctor told me before I had it that it would hurt really bad but in 6 months I would be glad I had it done. Well I am going in the 9th month and I am very unhappy. The stiffiness and heaviness is driving me up the wall. My knee is so heavy that it is pulling on my back. I am going for a second opinion. I feel like the doctor that did it hasn't been upfront with me on a lot of things.

There have been issues already on knee replacement recall because of the loosening of the knee and the need to undergo revisions of the implanted knee. Check this out.
