18 months ago I had a replacement knee, something went badly wrong, infection set in, and after intense physiotherapy, I am still in agony most of the time especially at night. I now can no longer bend my knee beyond 70 degrees and am told by my consultant, that I will never be able to as there is too much nerve damage following the surgery. I have been on high doses of morphine since the surgery, also pregabalin, but nothing touches the pain so I am shortly going to have an epidural to see if this helps.
I would like to know from people out there if there is any chance these injections can help with inoperable and untreatable nerve damage? Personally I cannot see how it can work!Knowing that I will always limp is hard to accept.
