12 weeks post TKR still swollen and hot and painful

Posted , 10 users are following.

I had my TKR 12 weeks ago and did well to start with . Last 4 weeks it has been swollen, hot and stiff and painful all the time. BLOOD test showed high inflammation but normal white cell count. Am on my third type of anti-inflammatory which seems to make no difference. Tears of frustration. Am 64 and normally physically fit and well.

    I am 18 months. I have the same problem. very hot. Started with a pain clinic last week. dr said it is nerve damage. I'm worse now than before surgery. Can't do much of anything that I could do before.
