    Jonkee I am12 weeks post tkr and I have the same pain at night. I just assumed its because of learning to walk on a straight aligned knee. I take more pain med, massage my knee and get up and watch tv. Heating pad distracts from the pain as well. It's been rough but so much better now.

    Hi there, follow Chico's advice.

    I had pain in that area earlier on, op was Dec 2017. Physio said to keep up with the exercises & gave me more to strengthen the quads.

    We tend to focus on the bending & straightening exercises, but need to build the musculature that supports the knee again too.

    Exercise is the key, I don't get any trouble in that area now, unless I have not been doing my exercises.

    Yes I had the same problem but it only happens occasionally now.  I am 19 weeks into recovery.  I rub Fenbid into my knee and this seems to help.
