Hello, I am 13 weeks post op left TKR. My knee is healing pretty good. I still can't bend my knee past 93 degree angle but it's coming along. My surgeon was just happy that I can straighten my leg all the way. But he is concerned that my incision has developed keloid which is very painful. He suggested a cortisone shot in my knee. My response: no way!!!! So he suggested putting cortisone cream on it and just keep massaging it. This doesn't seem to be working right now. Has anybody had to deal with a painful keloid incision? How do you get it smooth? I've had other surgeries but I've never had to deal with keloids. Please help!!!!
