Dear firecapt Did your Doctor have any luck finding a replacement for the bone cement. My first knee replacement was a night mare. With swelling leaking blood, puss and lots of pain for 3 years then it stopped and I had no pain for 2 years then the knee brook loose and They replaced it. This has been much worst still leaking since 2010. no infection I am allergic to the cement so it will do what the first knee did; it will break loose and then what??? Hope you have some good news for me.View Thread
I was sent to an Allergy Clinic and their test were also conclusive that I was allergic to the bone cement or glue as it is sometimes called. I have been to 5 orthopedic Doctors and only one of them has looked at the problem in a logical way, agreeing that you can be allergic to the cement. However now that it is proven I am allergic to the cement WHAT DO WE USE ???? I have had puss and knee juice running out of my knee since 2005 with only a few months of not leaking. When it heals up for a month or 2 pressure builds and the pain is well you know, very bad until it pop's open and starts releasing the pressure. If anyone knows where I can go please get back with the information.. SO SORRY I EVER HAD THE KNEE REPLACEMENT WITHOUT FIRST HAVING THE PROPER TEST FOR ALERGIES. 8 years wasted.View Thread
