Maybe this question is somewhere in the forum but so far I haven't found it. I am a few weeks from being one-year post op. I have been hoping that some of these issues would resolve but wonder if anyone else has had the problems or if I'm not doing enough. If I exercise or walk over a mile, the knee swells. It's not really painful, but it always swells and gets stiff. I've had some back problems as well so maybe have not exercised enough, but it is frustrating when I do go to exercise that I end up with a swollen joint at this point in recovery. Also, since I don't know anyone else I can ask to see their knee, does it ever get back to the same shape as the other knee? It has a definite bulge in it which I don't think is the swelling--just the shape. I guess I'm a little vain and would like it to look better at this point. I can deal with the scar.
