Risks of knee replacement surgery:
Knee pain can be a common factor to many individuals due to a multitude of reasons, including knee ligament injuries, meniscus tears, arthritis, age, and a variety of medical conditions. Knee pain impacts daily life and can be debilitating and excruciating.
If your daily life is affected, you may have tried to minimize the severity by using medications like cortisone injections, topical pain relievers, and even hyaluronic acid injections. In fact, the use of cortisone injections may have a dwindling effect. The first injection tends to provide the longest relief, with the effects of each additional injection lasting a shorter time, until knee replacement surgery is assumed to be the last resort.
Cortisone injections can also damage the joints and eat away the cartilage, which further exacerbates knee pain in the long term. However these are temporary solutions to a symptom, not a long term approach to the underlying problem. Your doctor might recommend it and it’s logical to assume that knee replacement surgery may be your only option.
Knee replacement is a serious surgery that is not without potential complications. Undergoing this procedure carries the risk of blood clots, nerve damage, limitation of mobility, long term persistent pain, dislocation, infection and unfortunately many others. Sometimes this surgery can even leave you with worse symptoms than before, even worse than the ones you were trying to fix in the first place.
Rehab also requires 4-8 weeks of intensive physical therapy, and although you should be able to return to normal activities approximately 6 weeks after surgery, recovery takes 4 to 6 months up to an entire year. Patients who have undergone this procedure express just how painful and difficult the process can be.
What many people don’t realize is that knee replacement surgery, along with rehab and recovery, may need to be done more than once as the results don’t last forever. It is taking a major risk without any guarantee of satisfactory results.
“Research suggests that up to one-third of those who have knees replaced continue to experience chronic pain” – BMJ
