I had bi-lateral TKR in April, 2009 with chronic knee pain since surgery. Following calcium uptake test that confirmed movement, so in late May, 2011 the left tibial component was replaced and glued. After 60 days, pain returned. I just sought a second opinion and that doctor's diagnosis is that ALL components need replacement with glue. Original surgeon disagrees. Bloodwork does not rule out sub-clinical infection, but is not positive for infection. So, I have 2 opinions, 180 degrees opposite. Is this usual? What analysis do I need to do to determine my course of action? Thanks!!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
