How Do You Know There is a Problem with Your Knee Replacement?
Knee replacement surgery can be a great way to repair a damaged knee and restore mobility, but there are risks involved. As with all surgeries, knee replacement procedures put patients at risk for infection and side effects from anesthesia, but these are not the only problems associated with knee replacement.
For some people undergoing the surgery, problems arose after the surgery was complete. How do you know there is a problem after surgery?
Problems after Surgery
Your doctor will speak to you about common issues that arise following surgery. Most of these are not serious, especially if they are treated as soon as symptoms arise. If you notice any of the following, contact your doctor immediately:
• Drainage from the surgical site
• Bruising around the skin or the new knee joint
• Knee stiffness
• Pain and swelling
It is also important to understand you could develop an infection at the site of the surgery or you might develop a blood clot. Left unattended, blood clots can be very serious and could cause a pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal.
