3 months post TKR - bruising all along scar

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi everyone

I seem to be getting different colour discolouration like bruising all along my scar. New areas appearing. Has anyone else had this please? I haven’t knocked it so there does not appear to be any reason for this. 

Advise appreciated.

    Hi! Bruising along the scar line shouldn't be unusual. I'm at four weeks post tkr today and still show some (fading) bruising. My PT was manipulating to get a better straightening and seemed to increase the discolorization. But don't seem to have any problems. It should just fade with time. How far along are you?
