Re: Stryker Triathalon

There is a lot of noise assocated with the knee, clanging and banging when ever I move around. Does anyone know if the triathalon is on the recall list?
I had the same knee replacement done in July 2009 and same problems. I am 57 amd was back to see Ortho dr today. Was told my knee cap is moving around alot. I was given RX for knee brace to keep the knee cap in place. Have alot of pain since the knee replacement. I also have alot of stiffness and very swollen. Am waiting for a bone scan and alot of blood work to be done. Was back to see Ortho dr last April and back then it was warm to touch and they claim they found nothing. Range of motion is horrible and need other knee replaced. Please respond. Remi
