Hi I had my 2nd tkr on 5th March 2018 so nearly 4 weeks ago. My knee is still extremely swollen, it feels like there is a tourniquet round my thigh and I have virtually no bend at all in the knee. I am walking around and mobile but I cannot bend the knee enough to get into a car. So I’ve been virtually house bound since I was discharged from hospital 3 weeks ago. I am doing all the exercises my physio has set me but the swelling is severe . This time on my first tkr I could at least get into a taxi and go visit friends. Any tips on how to reduce swelling are welcome. I’m getting worried that it will stay like this. As I live alone it’s beginning to get me down as I’m getting lonely. I make a point of getting up and walking round my house every 30 minutes and do my exercises 5 times a day. Plus I walk my dog to the bottom of the st and back 3 times a day. Any one else experienced similar? Btw happy Easter 🐣 xxx
