I had a right knee Stryker Triathlon knee replacement Sept. 2010. I could not get my knee to bend back all the way. I also had problems with it going up & down stairs. It caused me to fall about 8-10 weeks after surgery. I didn't fall directly on my knee, but realized that it was getting sore and didn't feel right. The doctor x-rayed it & said scar tissue (summer of 2011). It continued to cause me problems, so when I went back this summer (2012) & after he said the same thing again, I insisted on some other type of xray. After a body scan, I found out that the knee cap had come loose! I don't know what damage has been done, but now I have to have the knee cut open and the kneecap replaced! The doctor missed it on general x-rays, but it was there when he went back & looked again.
Has this Stryker Triathlon been recalled or has anyone else had this same problem? I am not happy about having to go through surgery again!
