    Of course it doesn't. At least you know there is something wrong and it wasn't you being daft. I am not sure how much the physio will help but you have to give it whirl, don't you? The very best of luck, bertyboy, I am pleased that you have gotten to the bottom of it all. Overall, it's a good thing even if it has taken them one helluva long time to realise what was up! DD

    Oh that does get you down, doesn't it? Just 'cos someone else's worked like a dream doesn't mean that yours has. It's like my favourite reply to the information that I have arthritis - 'Oh I had that but it went.' For crying out loud . . . . .DD

    Hi Bertygirl

    That has taken soooo long for you to be told what you knew all along, that something was not right. Did the surgeon say how this had come about? It is alright him saying he will operate. I can well understand that you are reluctant to go through all that again. I do hope that physio helps rectify the problem for you and I also hope you do not have to wait too long for an appointment, after all it was nothing you did that has caused this problem.

    Luv

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    hope the physio helps for the time being, I don't think you are a wimp, try other alternatives first i say, then it gives you time to think about an operation.
    good luck

    Hi Berty,

    I am glad you have finally found out what is wrong with your TKR and it has been acknowledged that this was not something you were imagining.

    So sorry though that you will need another op ... not surprised you are not keen to go through all the post op palaver again.

    Can physio actually "fix" the problem non-surgically?

    Speedy
    I have had OA since mid twenties. It affects my hips and knees. I had a THR on the left aged 30 and now have a resurface-replacement on the right - done May 2010.

    Hi Berty, at least you now know what is causing it, think we have all at some point questioned ourselves even just for a split second... Really hope the physio does you some good, and it makes senseto give it a try first, no operation is a small thing really matey..

    :grin:

    hi speedy physio might just get it back in track but its weather it stays there long term , with the op they put a like a tightning button in the back of my knee which is something i can find nothing about ,x
