I had TKR 22 months ago stopped taking any kind medication after 18 months put myself on a diet was 10st 2lb, now 9st although i was only on iburufin but i think mediction keeps weight on you. The reason i stopped medicating was i hurt when tacking the tablets & it made my head hurt also just felt the pain never ending and the rest of my body went into slow down.Pain never completley stops, but certainly dont feel so helpless and bad all the time. The problem i have now developed, and is waking me in the night is my iliotibial band,a large muscel running on outside of the leg from hip to the knee.I have the exercises to do to help it which hurt so much when doing. However my ? is, Should i not do them every day if it hurts and or perhaps do them every other day so not to over do the good, and has anyone else had the same happen. Thanking you all Beryl
