went to 4th doctor today for second opinion, actually 4th opinion, and he aspirated my knee, it was a lot of blood! It is now in for tests. This is 13 months after total stryker knee replacement. I kept telling these docs that the knee felt like an elephant I was having to drag around and the problems I was having with it, but was constantly rebuffed as if it was all in my head. I don't get it! Also may have slight loosening of implant?

Re: update

I am 7 months post PKR and also had aspiration of knee which was bloody, came back fine. My knee feels like I'm dragging around an elephant as well, lol. Mine is swollen and causes me to limp. Have you found out the cause?
