Hi all im 8 weeks post op of left tkr today! I have a lot of swelling on outside of knee in the area that is numb. It seemed to go down last wk but has swelled again. I ice regularly about 4 times a day. I went to physio today and they said they think its a pulled or swollen tendon where tendon joins muscle. I was wondering if this is a common problem? I am working very hard on my bend as this is what iv struggled with it was 77 when i was measured 3 wks ago and it was 86 today! I do bending exercises loads so had hoped for 90 today. The physio said bend could be better! Im going to try even more as iv got appt with surgeon 2 wks today! Any advice would be appreciated!
Im going to try to be confident enough to walk upstairs bending knee to do one foot on each step! Do you think this will help?
I did feel upset today as 2 men were only 5 wks and were chatting and saying they both had over 100"at bend and were walking unaided! Im finding it so much harder and i know i am trying my best! I did have a cry! Silly me! Thanks for any opinions! Hope i can sleep better tonight ! It helps !
