I had TKR in September of 2011 that was the worst decision of my life. As bad as my old knee hurt I would take it back in a minute. I've had CT scans and every other test to try to find out what is causing the pain and stiffness. But everything shows normal. I hate this knee I am so much worse off than with my own knee. I need TKR on my other knee but after this experience I will never opt to do it. I can't tolerate pain meds to good so I am really challenged when it comes to controlling the pain. I guess it is something I will have to learn to live with!!!View Thread
