I am five months TKR and still have pain when walking. Everytme I tried to do more exercises at the gym my pain increased and knee swelled even more.
So...I laid off the exercising and just did basic leg stretches and knee bends at home.
I live in a bungalow and I am seventy seven, not a youngster anymore.
I am getting depressed as I thought I should be practically pain free by now but I'm not. Today I am getting a sickening bone pain from my knee down my shin bone and pain at the back of my leg.
Quite a few people I have met who have had TKR tell me I should be pain free now as they were.
My question is....should I go back to the gym and get on the bike?
I get no advice from the doctor and I don't see any physio.I am just left to my own devices.I feel as though this is it and I will never enjoy my walks in the country and walks by the sea again.
Any advice at this stage would be appreciated. Thank you.
