I had my TKR 9 months ago, the first 7 months were terrible, then I had almost 1 month of doing pretty good. One month ago I came down with a sinus infection, and strept throat. I started on antibiotics after a week of infection and being real sick. Then my knee was giving me bad pain and it is hard to walk. The DR put me on stronger antibiotics and steroids. I finished al the meds, but still have bad pain and can hardly walk. Thank God for vicodin!.. There's no swelling, but there is a clicking noise. I want to know is the infection in my knee now? margiem8888View Thread
Boy nearly two years and it doesn't sound too good!
I had my surgery 9 months ago and the first 7 months the pain was terrible, 8 th month I was doing pretty good. This last month I came down with a sinus infection and strept throat. A week went by before I started taking antibiotics and steroids. I've finished the ten days of meds. And the pain over the last 3 weeks is real bad and i can't walk much even after taking Vicodin. It's not swollen, but it is clicking now. I don't know if it's infected or not. I worry myself sick wondering if it's infected. I don't think I could ever go through such a horrible and painful surgery again. Will I go on like this for two years like you?View Thread
