11 weeks post TKR and Patella operation and I feel as if I’ m going backwards.

Posted , 1 user is following.

After about six weeks post op I was walking and moving well and had very little pain. In the last few weeks however my knee has become stiff and I get a sharp pain across the middle of the knee when I bend it. I am now walking with a limp and find it difficult to sit for more than 15 minutes or so before having to elevate my leg.

I have been doing the physio exercises given to me but they don't seem to be helping. My physiotherapist has suggested using a walking stick again which I have been doing but this feels like a backward step.

Has anyone else experienced this and if so does it get better? At the moment I am worse off now than before the operation.
