13 weeks post TKR and back pain worse than knee

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hiya,

I'm having more trouble with my back particularly on the same side as my operated knee I can only think it has to do with me previously limping ....I'm seeing an osteopath this afternoon to try and sort it ..does anyone else have this problem?

    It's early days yet and you will get all sorts of other pains as you recover. If you ever do?

    I am nearly two years down the line and am having to go into hospital again to have my patella resurfaced.

    It's been an absolute nightmare and i wished I'd never had it done.

      Hi Suki

      Yes I know what you mean ....I think I'm taking the pain relief for the back rather than the knee...I went to the hydrotherapy pool this morning and followed the exercise sheet for both back and knee lol...I'm hoping my osteopath will be able to do something this afternoon..fingers crossed ....I'm working full time and it's not easy 😕

      Wow Penny you’re working well done you. Saw my physio this morning and he did some heat treatment on my knee but after that he more or less said one day I’ll wake up and the pain will be less. I’ve had lots go wrong like infection in my knee and blood transfusions in hospital this has put my recovery back. Never mind I’ll look back on this one day and it will all be better xxxx

    The side of your pain doesn't matter.  You've probably "thrown your back out"...or hips...or SI joints...or whatever.  We all unconsciously change out gait when we have pain.  This causes a misalignment of one or more things in your hip/back.  Quick fix: chiropractor.  No drugs!!!  A couple of sessions a week for a few weeks and you'll be fine.  Very common.  Be thankful it hasn't caused sciatica which is also very common but way more painful.

    I had both back and shoulder pains for a month or so, a few months after the op, but went away after a couple of months. I think just body adjusting maybe?
