Had TKR 6 months ago, always had a tight band around knee, swim 2/3 times a week, short walks only due to 15 surgeries on other leg.  I had a TKR on this knee 3 years ago very stable but not pain free. I walk with a stick.

My leg often gives way, hyper extends, locks very painful and swells and hot.. due to see Consultant last week but was cancelled till end of January. 

Yesterday my knee  gave way 3 times once while out and twice at home..

Anyone else have this ? 

Please advise

    Gail I have not had my knee replaced. But what you describe is what my osteoarthritis feels like. I would call the surgeons secretary and say you cannot wait till the end of January. See your GP also, you may need them to call hospital as well. I had an appointment cancelled last Thursday but they offered me another a week later. Good luck
