Hi I had my knee replacement November 2011 and I still can't bend it getting up and down stairs is a problem I can't exercise on my bike as I can't bend it that far I am in pain daily feels like tight band across my knee. I now have pain in my hip, lower back and feet my other knee needs to be replaced.I seen my surgeon a few days ago and he told me he had no answers as to why I was in pain and the only option he had was to take it out and start again but I would probably not be able to bend it at all and there was no point in him replaceing the other one as the first was not a success,I was told to go away and think about it then said he would see me in a year. I am not happy with him I have been in pain from day one was told it would take two years for things to settle well time up going back to my Doctor to ask for second opinion.View Thread
