I have been in pain for six weeks

Edited , 5 users are following.

I had total knee replacement back in November, but now six weeks ago my back started to bother me. it's my left hip and goes down my leg. I have been from ER to my primary physician, orthopedic chiropractic and spine pain center.

can't sleep and can't seat for too long. it's hard for me to stand up and walk.

can this problem with my back is from my kneel replacement?

    Pain starting in your lower back/hip, traveling through your butt and down your leg is typically sciatica. It is sooooo common after a TKR. Caused by a subconscious weight shift to avoid the pain. I got mine at 5 weeks; took visits to the chiropractor for about a month to make it totally go away. Gotta get those hips realigned so they stay in place.

    Other Pain After a TKR

    Again...very common. Work with your chiro and give it some time. There is no instant fix for this.

      Hi Chico, I have never had any pain in my left leg or knee since I finished therapy until three/four weeks ago. In 2016 I hurt my back and it caused Siatic nerve issues on my right side down to my foot and made my gait very, very poor. I Damaged upper spine and lower spine.

      I don't know if I stepped wrong or turned oddly in my sleep but, something happened to the muscle on the inside of the left knee. When I even touch my leg there it makes me feel like screaming. The only thing that has helped is soaking in brown vinegar and warm water and trying to elevate it. The Orthopedic Dr. is sending me back to therapy but, in light of the shelter in place order there's no telling when I I'll be going. Do you have any idea what may have happened to cause this?
