Knee replacement.


Hi. I’m new to this forum, looking forward to reading all your advice.

I had a full knee replacement last December. Unfortunately I have been told by consultant that I have the wrong type of arthritis for it to be successful. The pain is now worse as I have nerve pain as well.

Have anyone else been through the same thing??.

    Hello Jude, welcome to the forum from me.

    I'm so sorry that you've been told that by your consultant. I assume there was a chance of the replacement being successful before you had the operation? Is there any likelihood the pain will settle down? I do hope so and I apologise I can't be of much help.

    Love, Legs x

    Hi @Jude

    Welcome to the Arthritis on line community,so glad you have found us.

    You have stated that you had a new knee replacement last December but your Consultant says that you have the wrong type of Arthritis for it to be successful,I have Osteoarthritis and have both knees replaced a few years ago but my consultant knew what type of Arthritis I had before my operation.You don't say what type of arthritis you have it would be interesting to know.

    Your pain has got worse as a result of your knee replacement as it has affected nerves in that area. you ask if anyone else has been through the same thing.

    I have found a few links that may help you.

    Hope these links help you,meanwhile why not go onto the forums and chat with others.

    Please keep in touch Christine
