No injury. Partial knee replacement 6 years ago. Very helpful. However, I am having lots of pain & swelling. I saw a ortho specialist a few months ago. He explained that the plastic replacement part is beginning to shed bits of plastic. Will be seeing him in November. My knee is feeling worse and I am thinking that I will be having a total knee replacement soon. Would like to learn more about the stem cell procedure that is being used now.
