Today starts week 5 post TKR... Straightening isn't fun but do-able. Bending my knee however feels next to impossible. I get very sharp pains to the back of my knee. My knee feels so swollen that when trying to bend it it feels impossible... like it might burst! Trying to sit with my leg at 90 degrees seemed close to happening a week or so ago.. and now it's not. My surgeon says no to analgesics. Ice and plain Tylenol only. I can't bear to face my exercise sessions without something much stronger..... and have some old stash that I'm using. I go to see the surgeon later this week. Very frustrated...
Thanks for many of the posts written here. Help me feel I'm not alone.
