I had a knee revision in June of 2013. I zipped through PT well enough with no problems but seemed to have slipped some since. My revision side is weaker and less stable and I get some shin pain when I try to walk distances of over a quarter mile. It gets so bad at times that I am considering using a cane. I was just wondering how others are doing with revisions.
I am glad to have found this group as I am very interested in how others with this condition are doing.View Thread
I've had two TKRs, one in each leg and a revision on the left side. I have always popped when I walk. You can feel it right up the spine. My last physical therapist said that when the tissue warms up around the knee it should lesson or go away entirely. Sure enough, after PT or long walks the popping would go away. Unfortunately I don't exercise much anymore since the revision. Don't want to push my luck. I'm 63 and in a year or so when I retire I hope I can swim more. I think that will help.View Thread
