At first, i thought it was because I was finally walking correctly. That replacement failed, and in 2006, I had a revision surgery, total knee. Since then, I still experience the pain down my shin and calf, much worse than before and more negative impact on walking, exercise, etc. My orthos says the implant is not failing, and not sure why I continue to have that pain...have you heard about this? Any suggestions?
I'm 57, partial knee replacement completed in Jan 2004; revision surgery completed in Dec 2006. Did PT as supposed to. pain worsens with walking/use, lessons when at rest, but can occur there as well-usually started when walking and may not dissipate completely with rest. Worse with weather changes, esp. wet and cold.
