I had a total knee replacement in Riverview Medical Center, which still gave me severe pain..from their I went to HSS and had arthroscopic surgery, the doctor told me I was loaded with scar tissue... After still having chronic pain I had a total knee revision, the doctor told me the knee replacement was all wrong, everything was loose, nuts and bolts and that he could write a book about me!!! I am still left in chronic pain, the next step is a nerve block... I did 3 1/2 years of physical therapy and aquatic therapy...also acupuncture did not work.... I am mentally and physically upset... I am too young not to be active, I have 8 grandchildren and can no longer travel by myself... This was such a botched job, sorry I ever had any surgery!!!!
