Hi, I'm now nearly 10 weeks post op on my left TKR; I had the right one done last year. Unfortunately I developed a DVT in the leg post-surgery, which has delayed the physio and recovery, due to swelling. i became really ill whilst taking Warfarin, so have to inject myself with Dalteparin every day. My mobility is improving, and I'm planning a phased return to work next week. Pain isn't too much of an issue during the day, just when I first stand up, and then the old-lady noises appear! But night times are really bad; I remember they were with the last one, but this seems to be going on for longer. Can anyone give me any idea of how long this goes on for? If I get up, sit on the side of the bed, the pain disappears immediately, but when I lie down, it's like really deep toothache in my knee. I have to wake up to turn over 'scientifically' to minimise the pain. really fed up with it now!
