Surgical Therapy Q & A
Do i have to get surgery if i have Bone Marrow Edema in the knee?
I have had both knees replaced my right hip twice and now I will have surgery to remove the vein in my left elbow to eleviate the numbness i’m experiencing in my hand.I have a high tolerance to pain. After my second knee surgery I was up doing physial therapy the same day. Is there a surgery to reconstruct my ankle(s)? I’ve been told that they can be bonded I don’t think i would like that.
Are there any new ideas other than the current procedures now being done for knee replacement?
My dad was in a car wreck July 10, and was diagnosed with a fractured vertebra. He recently has been told he would need a new procedure to correct the problem. He will be having the balloon procedure done. With the surgery being delayed for 3 months, will the success rate be higher or lower?
I have JRA. my problem is my right knee. its been giving me constant pain and i know it needs surgery. i already have both hips replaced. my question is .. is there other means of getting of the pain other than surgery? not just my knee is in pain, also my shoulders but the knee is giving me a lot of pain. so have to focus on that first. life has been so difficult w/ my condition now. i hope you can enlighten me.
In ’93 I shattered my ankle and had a plate and 7 screws put in, then in ’03 I had 4 spurs and 2 bone chips removed. The ankle never went back to normal size, after the first surgery. After the second surgery the dr. told me that it was bone on bone, and now I am having problems with my knee and the pain can be made barely tolerable.I am asumming that the problem with the knee is due to not being able to walk correctly because of the ankle. Has there been any impovements on the replacements in the last few years? If you have one repacement done about what is the life of it and can another been done in later years? I am a machinst and work on my feet on concret all day. Will this shorten the life of the ankle? And what is the recovery time before I can return to work?
I have Osteoarthritis in one of my knees. The area around the knee is swollen. I am constantly in pain. I am on painkillers every day. The X-ray shows “bone on bone” rubbing. Do I need knee replacement or are there injections available to rebuilt the Cartilage?
I recently had screws put in my ankle and went for my dental cleaning and the dentist said because of the surgery I had, I would have to take antibiotics 1hr before my appointment, and I wasn’t able to see him that day. When I talked to my surgeon about this, he said I did not need antibiotics. Why would I need them in the first place? What are the risks of getting my teeth cleaned 2 months post-op?
How long should a knee swell and hurt? I had mine replaced 5 months ago and still have problems daily.
