Joint Replacement Patient Forum
I had a TKR about 10 years ago now and have had no problems. I'm an #amputee so this is my only knee and I walk using crutches.
Knee started feeling painful about two days ago and this morning I really cannot bend it without causing a lot of pain. I don't think it's anything to do with the bone.... feels more like I've pulled or torn something?
I can walk straight legged and stand on it but it feels kind of swollen and tight but not painful....but bending it to sit...ouch!
What could I have done? Should I see my doctor or will it ease up with rest?
