My knee replacement has come loose after 7 years. To much walking on concrete at work and has loosen up. Really not the Dr fault my new surgeon said ( I live in Iowa now and have different surgeon this time ) Dr gave me the bad news Yesterday. This surgeon says he can put another knee in and should last me to the grave , I heard that 7 years ago. I still have 3 years to work to get to 65. 3 years of work will be on this knee replacement. Not good. I have to see my pain DR Thursday and talked to him and see if he can get me to live on pain pills 21 months then I would be 64. Not sure he will go along with it. I am in a lot of pain right now and been on pain pills a long time
already. Any of you guys had the total revision and what do I have to look forward too? Is it way worse then the first knee replacement ?
Thanks. MD

I hope you can get it to work out so you can get off pain pills. That many pills probably isn't healthy.

Yes I have a pain Dr. He specializes in the type of pain I have been going through. Monitors me every month. Was able to get me 7 years on a knee that scar tissue choked the nerves down causing me the pain. Pain pills or cut it off. Going to have it replaced again looks like this fall. I have 3 years to go walking on concrete Before 65. Trying to pro long it as close to 65 as I can. Itís a timing thing.just wondering if any one here went through it twice on the same knee. MD
