I'm new to BoneSmart and hoping to find others who have had an experience similar to mine (altho I wouldn't wish this on anybody!). I had my second TKR Oct 28, 2022. Recovery was coming along nicely (less pain than with my first TKR) until I had sudden excruciating pain in my replaced knee. It took hours in the Emergency Room to control the pain. Turned out I had a hematoma in the knee. Also, my entire thigh and buttocks on that side were seized up in spasm in response to the knee pain. I had been place on a blood thinner after the TKR, because I had cancer less than 2 years ago. The drs think the blood thinner, plus "pushing too hard with my PT exercises" probably caused the hematoma. I spent 2 nights in the hospital and am now back to PT and working on recovery. The pain seems to be subsiding, but the swelling means I have little bend in my knee and I know it can't be pushed. Any advice? Will my recovery be slowed down much? I'm icing, elevating, doing gentle stretches, using pain meds, and resting.
