I had a TKR on April 25. Recovery has been good. ROM is pretty much back to normal and pain is getting better. However, i started out patient PT at 5 weeks and lots of exercises have been added. I am religious about doing them 2 x per day and going to PT 3 x per week. On Saturday my knee felt pretty good. One of the first really good days. Did my exercises. On Sunday it was more painful in the morning but ok by the afternoon. Today the area right below the knee is terribly painful and my ROM is still ok, but exercises that didn't hurt a week ago are very painful. I am worried because this seems like a big backward slide although I really didn't change anything other than doing a lot of exercises. I am wondering if I should back off the PT. I go tomorrow but I can ask what is going on. I am elevating and icing but not doing any real exercises today. Some heel slides and some stretching.
