i am 5 months post op of Right TKR. I get stiff and achey constantly. My ankle hurts. I exercise (walk dog for 2 miles), take care of three year old grand daughter and do some substitute teaching ( I am a retired teacher). At night I have pain when I change positions, from sitting to standing. I take 500 mug of Naproxen or 800 mg of Ibuprofen. I called my surgeon and found out he has no appointments for the next six weeks. My six month appointment is end of June so I have to wait until then to address my concerns.
My ankle pain makes walking difficult, yet I continue to do normal activities. I am not overweight, having lost 40 pounds before my surgery. Has anyone else had ankle pain?
Advice, please ? I am concerned about the issues related to overuse of NSAID's.
