I was just curious if anyone experiences shin pain after tkr, it's so bad at night , I'm hoping this is normal,
Has this come on lately? Is it random? I had various cramps and pains sometimes what seemed like randomly. Some of it might be from using muscles in awkward ways while recovering.I was just curious if anyone experiences shin pain after tkr, it's so bad at night , I'm hoping this is normal,
Shopping is too much for your knee right now, consider ordering online, or having someone shop for you.I tried to go to the store today to look at something I wanted to purchase I was in there and 10 min after being on my leg I had to leave because of pain,
You do not need to increase your walking every day, find a distance you can walk without any problem and stay there for a few days, then add a little bit more distance and see how you do, adjust accordingly depending how your knee reacts.I read to increase your walking everyday so i am guessing that's up the street and back?
No it is not too much, you should be icing and elevating for at least 45 minutes several times a day. When ever you are sitting or in bed, elevate your leg.I also ice at least 10 times a day is that too much?
Your ROM is fine, no need to try for more, as you heal your ROM will increase naturally as the swelling and inflammation go down.I am still doing PT and my ROM is 115,
Call your primary doctor and see if they will prescribe appropriate pain medications.they are wanting me off the pain meds asap. I dont know if I am ready to go off them
