    Left knee is 4.5 weeks post op and is still swollen and painful in one area. A bit of a bummer, especially as in a few days it becomes my good leg (RTKR on Wed).
    Trouble getting comfy at night and trouble sleeping as next surgery approaches. Want to get this over and done with but dreading the reality of it!

    QUESTION:

    It has been 3 and 4 months since my TKR surgeries and my quad tendon still really hurts when I sit down or stand up with normal height seats. Is this normal? I have worked on strengthening my quad muscles but so far that hasn’t made a difference. Sooooo frustrating! Please help!
