Looking for advice to survive the long weekend...I've long felt my TKR was only moderately successful since I've had ongoing, but tolerable, stiffness in the knee. However, during the last 24 hours I have teeth-gritting pain while bending my knee going up or down stairs. No pain while walking, but sharp pain just in front of the knee cap which increases with each step up or down the stairs. The only thing that might possibly have contributed to this is, while putting away Christmas decorations, I needed to lean my knee on the hard floor--a first really, since I only ever kneel with some sort of cushioning. It hurt in the moment, but I can't imagine it would cause pain while bending it two days later. I should have called the doc's office yesterday but I thought the pain would resolve itself. Thanks in advance for any thoughts you may have.
