    Hi. New here and trying to figure out how to add myself to TKR May list. Also I found this site by googling questions about pain behind knee in recovery. So glad I did cause I was thinking I'm a dud patient. 2nd knee replacement, different knee. This one is very different than first. Can anyone help me to participate on here?

    Hi Schnautzer - OK your hilarious! I agree w/ bonesmart, however there is going to be pain. Did you know knee replacement is more painful that hip replacement? I didn't until I went to the class at hospital. Believe it did not disappoint ! Thank goodness you have your sports background, as well as condition as an athlete to be in better physical condition than most .Unfortunately I'm stuck with an older sister( older than you by 4 years, you spring chicken) that had both knees replaced at same time 25 years ago. She lords it over me that she recovered in no time, and I must be "delicate". Translation- After having both knees replaced she came home and made a complete soup to nuts dinner for 12, went out sledding, knitted a blanket, and felt a bit sleepy! She's rewriting history. No empathy. I bet she would be a complete delight at a wake!

    Schnautzer, I digressed. I cannot swim, but I go into the deep end with a floatation device, and I run. It really helps the hamstrings.I stop when it feels like I've had enough. 2nd day of doing that, and I really like it. Small improvement, but I'll take it!

    Sounds good to me. I will do the same tomorrow. I know knee is worse than hip. Had right hip replaced in 2012. Piece of cake but maybe because I did not fret like I am with knee. Just let it heal and it was not painful.
    I only lived my life today with a few heel slides. Will see if my knee thanks me tomorrow by being happy. I will reward it with nice hydro therapy after walking the pooch.
    Off to bed ( no pills needed I hope)
    Cheersha ha

    Schnautzer here
    I am now at 12 weeks post tkr. All is pretty good EXCEPT due to pain still behind knee have a not so good rom.(100) still trouble doing full rotation on my stationary bike but do try it daily. Do aqua therapy and massage as well. VERY frustrated as I see no improvement in this issue behind knees. Massage therapist thinks it is muscular and maybe since I had hip replaced on same side muscles have been affected.
    My fear is that this will Never go away.
    See surgeon AGAIN this week.
    Any comments or Advice. Help
