Hi Folks, I had a TKR in March 2016, no problems with other knee before the operation, but once I started cutting down pain meds for operated knee I noticed a little discomfort with other knee. I am waiting an appointment with consultant but typically NHS waiting list are running behind!!! I am looking a little advice, the pain and discomfort in this knee is totally different to the other knee as in it is all centered on the inner side of my knee. I also get pain going down into my shin bone and when I have been walking or standing too much at work feel as if a tight band is tied round lower part of thighjust above my knee. I am currently on 3 different pain meds but getting little relief especially at night and my GP sys next stage is oral morphine which i am relucant to go on as when i took it for other knee spaced me out, felt drowsy all the time and generally had no life. I know it is heading that way again but looking for bit advice or help. Sleep is hard as cant lie on either side as it aggrevates it and cant lie on front as hurts knee. My knee is also very tender totouch.....all different symptoms to other one, I know no 2 knees will be the same but any advice would be lovely. thanks x
