My surgery was June 02, I'm 5 week today since my total knee replacement. I've had a lot of discomfort in that whole area, even when the blanket, or any clothes touches the skin, but never experiment any excruciating pain on my knee, never tuck pain pills since day one at he hospital. Drugs make me feel extremely bad. For me, they are worse than the pain. My biggest problem has always been my calf and tendon behind my leg.This has prevented me from doing my exercises well and extend my leg straight. I do not know why that area hurt so much and being so stiff. I went to see my surgeon four weeks after surgery July 1, and recommended me exercise in pool, which I've already been doing for 4 days, approximately 3 hours daily. He told me that I wasn't where I should be for this date. Referring to where the leg should be flexed. I had a lot of swelling and did not ask to much. He sent 4 weeks therapies and to see him after that, adding that if there is no improvement with therapies that he had to make it work, I didn't undestand what he means with that. He also sent some anti-inflammatory drugs that I'm taking once daily. Inflammation has improved, but I do not see any change, or improvement in the flexibility of the knee. Today is my first therapy. I feel that is going to be painful. We'll see.
