    TKR Bilateral hip & ankle pain post LTKR

    It has been going on 15weeks now from my LTKR. As far as my postop knee pain, 3 months was a huge turning point with postop pain lessening despite extension still at +5 & flexion ~115. However, the new debilitating problem is that both my hips & ankles have burning aching pain everyday...

    TKR Bilateral hip & ankle pain post LTKR

    I am going into my 7th week post LTKR. My flexion is 115-120 yet my extension is -5. I try my best to do the exercises given to me by PT. But still my knee feels like a cement block & can never straighten it even after stretching. I’m concerned that it is “locked” in place & will never...
