Hello and Welcome to BoneSmart! Thanks for joining us.
Please share the exact date of your surgery and which knee you had replaced
so we're able to create a signature for you. This information is helpful for those stopping by your thread to read updates or comment.
Discomfort and pain are not unusual at this point. Recovery can take a full year and even longer for some. If you're not icing, please read the article on ICE in the Recovery Guidelines below. Icing should help with the pain you describe. You mentioned six weeks of PT winding down to one session per week and it's likely that the PT coupled with the home exercises may be the cause of the pain. I'd suggest you consider stepping away from both PT and exercises for a couple weeks and see if you notice a difference. It's likely you will.
As for your gait, if you're limping, here’s a tip -
Try heel-toe walking when you're limping.
This involves striking the ground with your heel first, then rolling through your heel to your toe, and pushing out of the step with your toe.
It takes a concentrated effort, but I believe you'll notice a difference. Give it a try.
Stay in touch and let us know how you're doing and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
