    Hi Mary.

    Its a year since my opp . knee very swollen , have been advised to walk more , its for pumping action of leg . leg so big compression stockings suggested.

    my swelling due to trapped fluid after operation

    IT IS 18 months since my tkr. I Have been back to my surgeon, says everything is fine. Well it sure doesn't fine. every morning I wake up feeling like there is a 20 pound cement block on my knee. I do the PT, I do the leglifts I do everything, it never changes. Dr Always says the surgery was fine. I am resigned to the fact that this is never going to change. I can walk, I have good range of motion but the stiffness feeling never changes. I wish you luck in the future. Too bad I didn’t know this before

    i know what you are talking about. i am 18 months now knee surgery. i must say i was doing yoga for some time .

    try gentle yoga, avoid bent leg excercises. try lifting leg on a window cill, kitchen work top, slowly go higher. stay 20 seconds and longer gradually. cycle gently indoor or out.

    its helped me a lot.

    good luck

    its ok saying walk but the problem is trying to stop myself falling over. Theres something not quite right. before the op I had control over my walking which meant it was very painful because of the osteoarthritis but i have no control now
