Knee Replacement

After total knee still swollen and feels hot to touch

I am 66 yrs old, have had 2 TKRs; I've had a manipulation and total surgery to remove massive amts of scar tissue. I'm 4.5 mos out of surgery.Knee is hot 24/7, bends 75%, extends -25%. I had 6 wks of pt for 5 days a wk; 3 wks for 3x a week. Dr said I'd had enough pt--not to do any @ home-just to walk 20 min a day. Been walking a month.Knee still kills me.My Dr is supposed to be 1 of the best n the state. I'm wondering if I need to find a dr in another state. I'm so frustrated I don't know what to do. I need surgery on other knee, but hell will freeze over b4 I do that.. Does anybody swear by their doctor? I'm totally flummoxed.  (Apr 1, 2014 | post #46)

Who do you support for Governor in Texas in 2010?

you obviously care nothing about public education or women. Wendy Davis is the ONLY candidate who cares about the people in Texas; she will NOT line her pockets or the pockets of her friends and family. She's smart, kind, caring, and strong. She's fiscally conservative but cares deeply for children, poor and middle classed people, women's issues and education. A vote for Wendy is mandatory if you care about any of the above  (Apr 1, 2014 | post #17272)
