Had my TKR two months ago tomorrow. He also had to do a lateral retinacular release. That caused so much swelling and brusing. I am in The U.S. My doctor said mine was was the toughest TKR he has done. Still swollen and am only at 94 degrees flexion. Pain is non stop. Doctor told me to wean myself off pain meds but I still need them at night. Saw my physical therapist a few days ago and she commented that it was strange that she can not feel my patella. Anyone else have a lateral release? Very frustrated with all of this. Am only 50 and have to work full time as I am a widow and the only breadwinner.
