I had my right tkr 2/18/2020. I had major underside patella wear. My pre-op troubles were using stairs, but not on flat surfaces. I walked 3 miles daily with no difficulty previous to surgery. I am 6 weeks out tomorrow. I am miserable! Just ask my poor husband He is thrilled to go to work!! Even with corona! That horrible tight band feeling started about 2 weeks after surgery. My knee also throbs doing nothing. I had horrible insomnia that started about 3 or 4 weeks post op. I had to start taking a prescription sleep aide out of desperation! I need hope that this tight band feeling is temporary! It forces me to walk like a peg leg, with a cane of course!! Any suggestions??
