Knee fusion
Nov 5, 2013
hi I had a injury to my left knee 2007, I have had 5 ops and still not been unable to walk, last option was knee fusion which I had nov 2012 had external pins removed aug 2013, now in a soft cast which I don't seem to cope without it just yet, I put a bit a weight on it and manage a couple of hobbles but now seem to have gone backwards as I have pain in the knee area and it is very uncomfortable and cant seem to put any weight through it now, have I done to much, I don't know what to expect or what I should be doing can any one help me with some advice on the future

Hey Nettie! I also have a knee fusion and I am very pleased with it, no pain, stable leg, just perfect! Maybe your bones have not yet totally fused together. Did you have a new X-ray? What is on the x-ray? You could try to get a legbrace that fits tightly on your leg. Ask your doc for a legbrace, a legbrace may fit much better than a cast and you can take it off for showering! Let me know about your progess! hugs
