Hi i am 20wks. Post TKR. Thoroughly fed up
leg is still not totally straight but i have been walking more than 12000 steps a day - about 5 miles. Stairs are ok. But yesterday the tightness above my knee that had previously eased increased to unbearable. I tried heat and ice but neither helped.
I slept all night with it elevated but had to get up to take pain killers. As it woke me several times.
There's a sharp real pain above the knee and I'm wondering - tendinitis? My whole thigh hurts too - i have to work today but if it doesn't improve i will need to see my gp.
My next surgeon appt is in 4 weeks.
Anyone else had this?
