Knee is mending as well as can be expected, however i am now 15 weeks post TKR and throughout all off the 15 weeks i have always had pain after carrying out physio exercises (sometimes not a lot of exercises) with the intensity of the pain varying which can last from 1- 3 days. My question is this:-
1. Is the pain due to overdoing the physio exercise
2 Is the pain due to all the tissues, ligaments etc knitting together within the knee
3. A combination of 1. and 2.
At times even although i am in discomfort i try to carry out some physio exercises rather than resting my knee for a few days since i am afraid that if i do not carry out the exercises then my knee will not 100% heal completely.
Would like to hear other people experiences, for example has anyone had a 100% result with carrying out very little physio or just carrying out physio when the knee was pain free i.e. just let the knee heal in its own time.
Although i know that my knee is healing as well as can be expected i am sooooo frustrated that when i want to push along to get back to my relative active lifestyle i seem to keep hitting barriers in my recovery i.e. it appears my knee will recover in its own time no matter how much physio i try to do, Although i have been carrying out the physio for 15 weeks i am afraid not to carry out the physio as this may lead to not eventually a successful knee
