    MUA A Year and Still Tightness

    I will be at 7 years on my first knee June 27, 2012 and I have to say, my tight band feeling has never gone away. No pain but it is annoying to feel like I have a brace on both knees (second knee done 10/1/12) or duck tape wrapped around it. My bend is fine the tightness just never went away...

    TKR still having that tight band (rubber band) feeling'

    My Tight band feeling Has not gone away after six years. The feeling is like a duct tape or someone squeezing their hands around my Knees. It never goes away it does not hurt it’s just annoying. I sometimes wonder if it was caused by having 4 Mua between both knees. One of the June 2012 he...

    Isn't 6 years a little long for tight band feeling?

    TKR still having that tight band (rubber band) feeling'

    I'm wondering if any of you have a Dupuy knee replacement. That's what I have and I still have that tight band feeling almost 6 years now. It never goes away. I just saw a recall for their knee parts made between 2008-2013 (I had mine 2012). Have been to several doctors that my surgeon sent me...

    Revision TKR Never give up, keep trying, don't settle - that's me, Bonnie

    Hi Bonnie, sorry to hear about all the problems you have had with your knee. What type of doctors are you going to? The reason I asked is that I'm still having that tight band feeling in both knees which were done in 2012 (three months apart). Went for my four year check up a month ago and my...

    TKR still having that tight band (rubber band) feeling'

    Wow, I read patient 99's post. I could have written every word, down to when she said " I think about it every minute of every day" and it isn't stiff knee it is a tight band feeling. I'm anxious to try some of the taping if I can find someone to do it. I have no pain it's just a "pain in the...

    TKR still having that tight band (rubber band) feeling'

    The doctor I had was highly recommended by a friend of mine who was referred to him by Dr. DeBakey years ago. This doctor has done 400+ a year and was written up as one of the best in the business. Just last week I went in for my four year check up for the first knee and the second one will be 4...

    TKR Worried Sick about Progress

    I hope your tightness goes away. Mine has not. First knee done 6/27/2012 with MUA about 7 weeks after that, then second RTKR done 10/1/2012 with MUA on that one at 12 weeks and at that time they also "cracked as I call it" the first knee, then at three months on last TKR they did another MUA...

    TKR still having that tight band (rubber band) feeling'

    Almost 4 years (June 27th) for first knee replacement and 4 years October 1, 2016 for second replacement. I'm still having that tight band (rubber band) feeling around both legs that never goes away. It doesn't hurt, it's just annoying. Last year I fell twice, once flat on both knees on...

    TKR Cflower's recovery

    So, I'm two years on both legs now (6/12 & 10/12). For the last two years I continue to have the tight band feeling around my both knees. I had done 3 months PT with first knee, two week break then had RTKR done and another three months. I remember at the end of December (6 month of PT) telling...

    TKR Pain, Swelling after 14 Months

    Hi Momteacher. My LTKR was 2 years old June 27 and the RTKR will be 2 years old Oct. 1. I don't have pain of any sort but I have this tight band feeling 24/7 that I can't get out of my head. It feels like either someone has their hands around me strangling my legs or I have duct tape wrapped...

    TKR Cflower's recovery

    Carol, I'm glad to find someone who knows what I'm talking about. Usually when I say tightness, people think i'm talking about bending my knee and range of motion. I think my range of motion is good, probably about 120°. I have started piling my pillow shams on the floor and kneeling on them...

    TKR Cflower's recovery

    Update on knees. LTKR done June 27, 2012 and RTKR done Oct. 1, 2012. There is not much change in the tight band feeling and I feel like it may never go away. What I can do, I can ride by bike with no problem. I do not have trouble with stairs or getting up and down from chair after being...

    Hi Bonnie, do you still have a tight band feeling around your knee? I'm posting something about my knees if I can find my old thread. I have a German made Briria(sp) bike and love it. No throwing my leg over the bar any more.

    TKR Progress Report Mazza November 1st 2013

    Has your tight band feeling gone away? My left knee is 20 months old and my right 15 and I still have that tight feeling. I can get at least 120 degree when I stretch with a strap. Sometimes I have that feeling up and down my shins. No knee joint paint at all. Just want that feeling to go away

    Thanks I will look. I just knew by looking at any thread or mine no one would know a new question was being asked. When everyone's Threads start "on the other side" and it's all their Experiences with a new knee it's hard to find an answer to a problem. I will definitely go to library

    TKR Cflower's recovery

    I know everyone has their own post for recovery but is their a way to look up a problem or concern without reading through pages of someone's recovery. Is everyone just allowed one thread? I would still like to look to see how long people have that tight band feeling and also my 88 year old...

    TKR Cflower's recovery

    I've been reading so much about Zetia and other cholesterol medicines and muscle problems. I'm wondering how many of us with tight band feeling and cramps are taking these drugs?

    TKR Cflower's recovery

    I'm done with all types of cholesterol medicine. I took my last zetia yesterday and will not take the new one the doctor prescribe. I wl never take them again no matter what my numbers are. I will post again in a few days As to whether leg cramps are better.
