    TKR evonovitch's recovery thread<

    Thanks for the replies. It’s hard to be patient when I think I should feel better than I do. I’m wondering if the Peroneal nerve, which runs from the knee to the foot, is involved.

    I am 6 months post TKR (November 4, 2018), and I continue to have aching pain that runs from the side of my knee down to my ankle. I continue to do stretching, ride a stationary bike for 30 minutes, and do deep water aerobics, so I’m not overdoing it. I also ice and elevate a couple of times a...

    I am 4 months post left TKR. I still have a lot of stiffness and aching pain, particularly on the lateral side of my knee and down my leg to my ankle. Can anyone else relate to that?

    My surgery for a total knee replacement was November 5, 2018 (so 13 1/2 weeks post-op). I’m still finding it very challenging with a lot of pain and discomfort, both down the side of my leg (very tight IT band and muscles) and in the knee itself. My extension is -1 and my flexion is 120, so...

    Has anyone had a problem with stitch abscesses? I am 13 weeks post op. About 6 weeks ago I developed the first one at the top of my incision, which was finally getting better after weeks of drainage, and I suddenly developed another one last weekend. For the first I took an antibiotic. Waiting...

    I have the usual tightness around my knee, but I have another pain that bothers me more: an aching from the outside of my knee down my leg and into my ankle on the outside between the bone and the heel. My foot has always been achy, but this particular pain started about 7 weeks post-op. Has...
