I had a knee replacement in August 15 and generally have made good progress and did not suffer from too much pain. I had a slight hiccup at about 3 months post op and developed some intermittent pain around the knee cap which felt like nerve pain but this disappeared after a couple of days.
The latest problem is stiffness in the outside part of my knee which seems to make going downstairs slightly probelmatic.I have also developed some soreness which seems to come on after going downstairs.
Still have a very good range of movement in my knee, it is just the muscles which are tight and I am quite concerned about the sore, stinging pain which is very localised to a particular spot on the outside of my knee and sometimes feels like a stinging sensation.
Walking is not an issue so I am still able to walk distances.
I am not doing many exercises now and I have been discharged from the physio and the surgeon so it is quite scary to have no one to discuss this issue with, although the surgeon did say to ring him if I did any concerns.
I did go to a Pilates class on Monday and I did spend a long time inthe kitchen cooking on Tuesday afternoon, so maybe I have just overdone things.
Any thoughts or advice would be welcome.
