Hi Everyone.Im back looking for a bit of advice please.
I am now at 15weeks post tkr.Apart from the usual problems with pain,nerve pain,tightness and bit of infection in part of the scar I seemed to be doing really well.I had my op on 26 Oct and I saw my surgeon and pt at beginning of December.They were both pleased with my extension and my knee bend which was 95deg.When I saw my pt ten days later the bend was at 110.Four weeks ago it was 120deg.so she said she didn't need to see me again as I was doing so well.I was able to get upstairs normally from week 7(with a bit of pain)and coming down a few weeks ago.I still had a fair bit of swelling above the knee on the left and under the knee on the inside.3 weeks ago I started getting pain going upstairs again and I'm having to hold on again.I have a lot of discomfort all around my knee.I started driving again but it's a small town so not much.I just noticed some of the hardness on the left side of my knee seems to be softening a bit and it's a bit more sensitive to touch again.
Im sorry this is such a long story but I wonder if anyone has any ideas.Thankyou and good luck to everyone.By the way I am 67
