My first knee replacement was in 2002. Second one was in 2003 (on the other knee). For a number of years now I have had pain in my "knees". Even the tissue surrounding them. I've noticed that I can hear the prosthesis move when I move my leg. I swing my legs and they make a funny noise. Today I went to an orthopaedic surgeon about another (unrelated) problem and asked him about the pain in my knees. Well since he didn't do the surgery he took a big step bacvkwards and told me that he would not treat my knees. That I was to go back to the original surgeon to report this problem. Sounds fishy to me. My primary physician took x-rays a few wks ago and told me that I had "arthritis" around the knee joints. I have to laugh. How can one have arthritis around prosthesis's? I want to get out and be normal as I can. Walk, exercise, work. But when I know that when I stop at night I'm going to have knee pain how can I do this?
