Hi, hope you have a few minutes, this is pretty long winded ! I had my right TKR Jan. 18 & now I'm pain free in the knee, & awaiting my left to be done, however, some few mths after, I developed a stoop & back ache, which ive never suffered from before. ( I'm 64 by the way ) I limped before my op & I'm still limping. My new knee leg is longer, due, I'm assuming, to a mis-alignment of my hips, but because of this i tend to have my right leg bent a lot of the time, especially when standing still. I can straighten my right leg, but feel some pain down my inner thigh & wondering if I've shortened that muscle from always having it bent. Is this possible even ? The stoop is concerning me, as if I try to straighten up, it really hurts. Is it my spine ? my hip ? or muscles ? Will it balance things out when I get the other knee done ? Sorry this is so long, but its quite hard to explain all thats going on ! Thanks for reading this, hope someone might be able to advise me. x
