At time before last phsyio i went did all the excercises and when my phsyio checked on me i told her i had this stinging pain , on the left (so inside ) of my knee it was there b4 my surgery and seems to still be there , the right side of my knee is totally i cant feel anything, or any pain in  that side at all. She worked put that the new jpint is pressing on muscles and a tendon that has become weak from b4 my op. And taped that side of my knee up , and said just go home keep doin your excercises, and ice on and so on , i did , i even started walking my little dog i did that from the tues to the friday , its only a 15 min walk there and back. But by friday the pain is gettin worse it stings, and i cant touch it , or even have anything near or restin on my knee, .

goes back to phsyio last friday did the usual excercises, my phsyio. Comes over to me , i said the pain is still there and she then tried gently to manipulate the joint a bit which was painful for me. She didnt do it for long , taped my knee back up and sed .you are. Carryin extra weight , ( i lost over 2 stone b4 my op and am still on a doet but it has slowed a bit) and she gave me some diff excercises, with a ball between my legs and feet, i havent done these yet but will start today as ive spent a bit more time restin , and no dog walking. Has any9ne else had or gettin this problem

    Hello, I had something similar a year after My tkr. Numbness n tingling around my knee that went down from the knee . I saw my surgeon and it was determined that the nerves coming from my lower back were causing the problems. Something to consider?

    It lessened a lot. But a nerve conduction test showed some poor signals. And an MRI showed some nerve impingement . Physical Therapy, nothing serious enough for surgery. There’s another issue going on in my right knee now.
