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!!

  • I suffered of lower back pain 6 months ago and kept lying for two weeks with medications and pain killers, now after several months I have not recovered fully yet, if can perform normal but still in pain with tension down along my left leg. I did MRI and x-rays and got sciatica l4 and l5 lumbar and are dry and squeezed, I have been walking on treadmill with light floor excursive but seem to improve very slow. I stopped all medications long time ago but looking forward to recover fullyI would appreciate any ideas to relief back pain
