Hi everyone. This BoneSmart forum has been a wonderful resource for me over the months. Thank you. Also the Bob and Brad physiotherapists' daily videos on YouTube. I had a left TKR in October 2018 and fortunately seemed to fly through that one no problem. Yes of course it was sore for a while post op but with gentle exercise and long extension holds and bends, I was back at full ROM very quickly, walking and exercise biking well and I was discharged by my physio after just 4 sessions with a print-out of strengthening exercises. Walking was no problem (with that leg). Then I had my right knee done in March 2019 and wow ! what a different experience! Same surgeon, same hospital. Same physios. This right knee recovery is so very much more painful than the left knee that if I'd had it done first, I probably wouldn't have had a second tkr done! The joint is incredibly painful and stiff and resistant to the physio extension work. My surgeon says there's no infection there. It's not particularly swollen anymore, and icing and heat pads aren't helping. Due to kidney problems, I'm not allowed NSAIDs any stronger than ibuprofen and opiate-based painkillers make me nauseous and hyper. So sadly I'm stuck with ibuprofen and paracetamol. Turmeric and Curcumin, which people seem to swear by, unfortunately hasn't worked at all for me. My right leg is now stuck in a slightly bent position, and my surgeon says I will need to have an MUA done under general anaesthetic very soon to get the leg flat. A 15-minute procedure, he says, but I'd imagine very painful afterwards??? Any comments on this? With the left knee, once the staples were removed and after regularly massaging the scar using bio oil, the scar faded and became painless and very soft quickly, However, the right knee scar is hard and the same massage isn't changing things much. With this knee, when the staples were taken out, there was no pain relief at all and the subcutaneous stitch line could be felt like hard, lumpy, wavy string. Now, 7 weeks after the op, this long stitch is just starting to dissolve, but the skin wound still feels incredibly tight. I can bend my knee ok but it feels weird and the stretch on the skin feels so tight that although I know it won't, it feels like the wound will split open Recently, on one tiny, tiny section of the scar, over the knee cap, there is what I think must be a nerve pain triggered by the very lightest touch, a brushing against clothing or a bed sheet. It is like a needle being poked sharply into the skin and it is horrible. Will this go? Any searches I've done about post TKR nerve issues, seem to focus on either numbness or nerve pain within the knee interior. So what is this acute needle like pain on the skin surface? There's no heat or swelling there. Just a highly sensitive area of skin. Finally, although I can now walk well, climb and descend stairs normally etc, (apart from the bent knee), simply standing still is extremely uncomfortable and if I have to stand for longer than 5 minutes, I just have to sit down to rest. Why is this? I would really appreciate comments suggestions. Thanking you all in anticipation.
