Hi folks, I had a total knee replaced 22 months ago in March 16, which went very well...a few hiccups along recovery and went back to work after 14 weeks. Knee has never been same as old one which I know is understandable but I still cant walk a long distance....20 mins is max. I cant stand for any length of time...15 mins max and when I wake it is stiff achey and uncomfortable. I have seen my consultant a couple of times and he keeps saying wait till 2 years it will be fine as x-rays and bend are fine. Since I saw him last it has completely locked twice and I physically could not move it and was in agony for 2-3 hours after it needing ice on it. I am only 52 and work as a teaching assistant 35 hours a week which is on my feet a lot. My other knee is going same way but I thought after this time it would be easier. Does anyone else still have discomfort, stiffness aches and soreness after nearly 2 year. Am I going to wake up in March and be ache/pain free in my left knee....I doubt it. Thanks in advance s
