    TKR MUA at 9 months?

    Can it be too late to get MUA? I have been doing more PT that has helped my IT Band. I still have intense pain where a ligament goes over my lateral femoral condyle. The stretches I am doing don't seem to be helping. Anything else that might help?

    TKR MUA at 9 months?

    I have been improving my ROM to 115-120 and my extension is near zero since I went back to work. I am having pain at DRF1. It is a band of tissue ?? Collateral ligament maybe.

    My daughter is a massage therapist and she worked on my leg today. She worked hamstrings and ITB. I feel much better with no burning. I can stand straighter and bend more. I am going to continue with massage when I get home.

    TKR MUA at 9 months?

    I started getting a sharp burning pain on the outside of my knee when I stand or turn my leg. I had a few pains below my knee. Is that expected or did I hurt something? Thanks for any help.

    TKR MUA at 9 months?

    I am at eight weeks since my RTKR. I am wondering how long until night time pain goes away or will my knee hurt this way forever? I also have pain at the right side of my knee when I pull my leg back. It is very tight there. Will this eventually loosen up from exercise and moving my knee?

    TKR MUA at 9 months?

    i have been having severe spasms in my leg following TKR May 23. I mentioned it to my sister. She had been an RN for a neurologist. The dr. told her to drink dill pickle juice. I took two tablespoons full and it stopped the spasms. I googled this remedy and found runners have been using this...

    TKR MUA at 9 months?

    My prescription was reduced to one hydrocodone every six hours but I take more if I need to. I will increase my icing. I am cutting back my PT and may look for a different PT group. My massage therapist is also an OT assistant so I may look at working with her. She works in a rehab unit...

    2. I take one hydrocodone 5/325 every 5 to 6 hours. 4. Are both ROM and extension off? Will reduced swelling help my readings get better? 5. I ice for ten minutes to twenty minutes. 6. I tried using your pictures for elevating but I think I have my legs too straight. 7. When I tighten my...

    TKR MUA at 9 months?

    Could this be from doing leg exercises that are too strenuous? I have a sore ankle. My PT has had me walk against resistance plus lots of hamstring work.

    TKR MUA at 9 months?

    Thanks for the ideas. I'm not able to start driving so thinking about commuting in two months seems overwhelming. When I picked up my medication yesterday - hydrocodone - the dosage had been lowered to one pill every six hours. Now I am worried how I will get through the pain PT causes. The...
