Knee Replacement Knocking

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello All,

I know that this comes up from time to time but I'll bring it up again anyway. 😃 It's been just over 11 weeks since a TKR of my left knee and I'm having some knee knocking issues. My concerns are that the knee wasn't knocking until about 7 weeks and is starting to get increasingly worse (louder and more persistent) . It pretty much always knocks when walking and has kind of a hanging up feel to it....like I have to push through the knocks (usually two knocks). There is some pain but it's fairly minimal. Is this anything that I should be concerned about?

Thanks in advance,

Kel

      Hello baybay,

      Yes, I hear it and feel it. It affects my stride in that I have to push through like something is locking up. It's not real tight but seems to be getting a little worse again this morning, a little tighter and a little more pain. I am walking more than ever and going up and down some stairs so maybe the increase in activity is causing it? My wife had both of her knees replaced and didn't experience anything quite like this. She had, and still has on occasion, some locking and knocking but nothing to this degree.

      Thanks,

      Kel

      Hello Moosn8r,

      I see my doc in a couple of weeks and will ask her. It could be caused by an increase in activity but I thought I'd swing it by my fellow TKRers and get your opinions.

      Thanks for the reply,

      Kelvin

    Very common. It will come and go with any sounds virtually gone by 12 months and should be completely gone by 18 months. No problem...virtually everyone experiences this.
