    TKR Increasing pain at 7 weeks

    I had a THR 11 years ago. It was so much easier! I am pretty sure there is another knee and hip replacement in my future.

    TKR Increasing pain at 7 weeks

    He wanted me to totally rest it for the rest of this week. I am 120 ROM and my extension is fine. Then he said I could do my own exercises at home and walk around in the pool if I wanted. I would much rather do it this way. The day when the pain intensified they had me doing squats and step ups...

    TKR Increasing pain at 7 weeks

    I am now at 8 weeks post RTKR. I was in excruciating pain at week 6 and 7, particularity when lifting and lowering my leg. Due to the long holiday weekend I was able to rest and ice my leg for 4 days. What an improvement! With my Drs approval I quit PT today. I will test my knee for another week...

    TKR Increasing pain at 7 weeks

    Actually, I am taking a break from Pt. The last time I went my therapist gave my knee a message. He said it felt like there was hard scar tissue right where the pain is. He thinks if I message this area frequently I might be able to break up the scar tissue. Does this sound feasible? In the...

It was very painful to drive and I won’t be doing that again until this is resolved. The therapist was great. He tried message, ice, nerve stimulation but nothing really helped. He...

    TKR Increasing pain at 7 weeks

    I will talk to them about cutting back tomorrow. I was thinking of doing just a few more weeks instead of the 8 the Dr wants. I am 120 now. I think the Pt is aggravating my other arthritic joints.

    TKR Increasing pain at 7 weeks

    Thanks Jockette, It was my Right knee BTW. I am doing many different exercises in PT. Balance, leg lifts, step ups and modified lunges, toe lifts. They have me riding the bike for 15 minutes. PT didn’t hurt until a week ago. It seems the pain intensifies when I try walking around the house...

    TKR Increasing pain at 7 weeks

    Thanks. Actually I am now starting to have trouble with my other knee as well. I was thinking it was the Pt. It is in bad shape but wasn’t really hurting much before.

    TKR Increasing pain at 7 weeks

    Hi all, I had a TKR on May 9th. I came home the next day and was doing very well. At 40 hrs post op I tried to get up from my chair and fell twice on my knee. I went in to see Dr the next day and everything looked good on X-ray. Of course I was now using a walker. At 2 weeks I was 110 and 0...
