I did too!!! lol
I am wondering at 7 months and 12 days if my revision knee should still feel swollen inside with only a 115 degree bend? I have not ice my knee in months. I don't do a lot of exercising except Pilate's once a week. It is very controlled but I really notice it then. I really don't want to see my OS but wondering if I need and X-ray? My knee is not hot or red or extremely swollen on the outside. It probably is an inch larger than my normal knee....maybe it is from the implant itself. Surely I don't have an infection. It doesn't feel like I do.
You are only 7 months out from your revision, your soft tissues are still healing.
Suggest you start icing and elevating, and see if it helps with the remaining swelling.
@Pumpkln, thank you. I went to get my ice and I am elevating in the recliner now with my doggie sitting on my left side. We take naps together and watch TV/read/play on the Internet. I'll see if that helps. I'm not in any pain, just the discomfort from the internal swelling.
Maybe cutting back the Pilates for a while would help, too? It's not uncommon for a knee to continue to swell for a year or so after replacement, if you do a bit too much for it on any day.
@Celle, My knee was like that before I started back to Pilates after the revision. I only do Pilates once a week for 30 mins. Half of the time is spent on arm work. Icing did help (2hrs in the recliner). I went from 115 to 120 degree in my bend.
Such a cute doggie!!!
I love the quilt in the background of the first picture!
@Jockette, my best friend made that quilt for me! Thank you. I love it too!!!
That’s so nice your friend made it for you.
Your socks are cute, too!
That 115 to 120 after icing/elevating shows it’s definitely the swelling keeping your knee from bending. Try icing/elevating regularly. It was over a year before my knee stopping swelling.
