 broken femur in leg with knee replacement
Darlene (---.bltmmd.fios.verizon.net)   8:41am Oct 18 2009

I took a fall in 1997 that began the deterioration of the cartilage in both of my knees. So...in 2005 I had left knee replaced, 2007 right knee replacement (and because I walked funny for so many years in 2009, a right hip replacement). On Sept 20, 2009, I was gardening, twisted funny taking a step down a small hill and broke my right femur above the knee. I had surgery and had a metal plate and thirteen screws put in. In addition, the knee replacement was pushed up into the femur and pulverized some of the bone which my doctor replaced with a bone graft. Anyone else have experience with broken leg after knee replacement?
