Lately my knee so painful and sore and my wrists and back hurting from walking with crutches and part time working, getting to the stage I don't know what to do- physio not helping with the therapist putting his weight on my knee - thinking he can force into place and then shaking his head, seeing him tomorrow again - if it wasn't so painful I could really laugh at some of these people actions and thoughts:dubious:

This won’t help your knee, but make sure you don’t have death grip on the crutches. That can really hurt your wrists.

You need to declare a foul on the PT when he pushes like that. RED CARD!

Today feel physically sick with pain in leg- I can tolerate so much pain but this is unbelievable ,though leg not swollen and ,my Rom improving so don't think its scar tissue stopping the straightening of the leg but really need to consider stopping the physio it not worth the pain- I rather go through another operation

Please stop this physio now. It is not doing any good and in fact it is setting you back with every visit. Rest, ice and elevate as much as you can. You may not see swelling but internal swelling is what is causing you pain.

Once that knee settles then gentle stretches to slowly increase your ROM.

@Jaycey next time I visit him I am going to inform him that I just going to let him do gentle stretches or massage on knee but no more push and pull exercises etc has my knee still excruciating pain wise and can hardly walk- though I am noticing this is muscle wastage on knee which is causing a wobble feeling when walking- also with physio I will ask if he can refer my again to the surgeon :banghead:

Please stop going to this physio. he is doing more harm than good. Trying to force your knee is Injuring it, by keeping it inflamed and sore.

It's your knee, not his, and you have the right - and the duty - to tell him to stop abusing your knee.
Saying no to therapy - am I allowed to?

Really need some explanation for my knee and cannot get any straight answers- as you know I cannot straighten leg got a 20 per cent bend so cannot walk properly without crutches -My Rom is at 80% so ok - so therefore don't think there is any scar tissues that stopping straightening- all my surgeons keep saying its stiffness this cannot be so I believe . walking now is so painful and having to rest every 5 minutes or so and its getting me down- and to state physio not helping one bit and is to painful to continue and even physiotherapist is shaking his head not knowing what to do

Feel like I'm asking a silly question but here goes - Is it normal to feel very bad pain nearly a year on from my TKR , I'm not overdoing it at all ,in fact seems to be laying down more than sitting or walking because of the pain, wont say about the straightening has feel it a different matter

Just try and keep positive hopefully once the worst has passed the doctors /surgeons can find a solution to your knee.
At the moment understandably their focus is on saving lives due to Corona Virus. Meanwhile all you can do is plenty of RIME. ( an English abbreviation for .. Rest, Ice , medicate and Elevate ) Stay safe xx

I don’t know if this will help you with cutting your toenails, but I put my foot up on my doggy steps while cutting mine. It has helped me immensely by not having to bend so much. I put a small towel over the steps, which catches most of the clipping.

Need advice here - on my previous TKR on my left knee I had a blood clot - and not sure if its returned or not because of the inaction during this Pandemic lockdown , my leg feel extremely heavy and my inner thigh stings, cannot find any redness or bruising - my leg is always been swollen so cannot say it more swollen or not , but it stings like it did before and my knee feel really tight like the tight banding returned- dont want to go to hospital during this time,
