Hi, I just found this site and am praying one of you can help. My husband was in a terrible motorcycle accident last August. He was hit by a garbage truck on his left side. His knee was rotated 180 degrees on impact and after multiple surgeries, he ended up with a BKA. His knee is causes him extreme pain now and he has not real movement in it. He is considering a knee replacement, but the doctors aren't sure if it will really work. My question is........ with his valgus (I think thats what it is called) which causes his stump to swing out, will a knee replacement truly work? His only other option is to amputate above the knee. After everything he as been through I am terrified of ANY more surgeries!! I can not find any site that addresses BKA and knee replacements. Thanks for any and all help!!
