I am 6 weeks post op of a partial knee replacement on my right knee. I have been having physiotherapy twice a week. I am frustrated as I am still in a lot of pain mainly when walking I am taking narcotic pain relief which eases the pain. I am walking short distances (around the house) unaided but use a walking stick when I go out. I am not driving as I don't feel confident to do so as well as taking pain meds.
The physiotherapist says my movement is going well.
The issue is the amount of pain I am having I thought by week six it would have eased by now. I have not returned to work due to the pain and unable to drive. Should I still be having this much pain when I walk? I feel like I must be doing something wrong.
