Revision PKR to TKR anyone?

My 11-year-old Oxford PKR has failed (spacer broken and now jamming up the joint).

I am scheduled for a revision to TKR on 9th December.

Has anyone gone through this? Can you tell me if the revision to TKR will be much worse than the original PKR?

Should I expect more pain? Will recovery back to mobility be harder?

Hi,

It all went much better than I had expected. It wasn't nearly as bad as I had feared!

Actually, I seemed to have less pain this time round - maybe I was better prepared and knew to ask for medication before the pain got overwhelming.

It's 3 months now since I had the revision and I am back to leading a normal life, except that I still tend to get tired easily. I'm walking without a stick and without limping. I can do stairs one step at a time and I can get on and off buses without any trouble. I've been driving again since 5 weeks post-op.

All-in-all, I'm happy!

Re: Revision PKR to TKR anyone?

Wow - Tnx for quick reply.. Very encouraged to hear your info.. Still diagnosing failure of Biomet Oxford partial at 1 yr post surgery. I am concerned that it might require a TKR --- because I know revisions can be complicated. But it's great to hear your story.

My guys are at Hosp for Spec Surgery in NYC --- Did you have yours done in Danbury??

I live in New Zealand, so I had it done there.

Well -- follow-up from me. Had the revision to TKR and am very happy I did. 2 months post revision now, and no problems at all. Biking, playing tennis. Guess I was not a great candidate for partial knee in restrospect... but who knew!!!!. My recovery is happening quicker than the initial operation. I'm very pleased. Good luck to you down under...
