    Hi Sherri, I think if I were you I would go and speak to your doctor, or try to get an appointment with the surgeon. I am only 3 months post TKR, but I would be concerned if the pain had stopped and now started again.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    Thanks Caz...I called the office and there was a return voice message that said it was normal to have this pain. 

    I'm concerned because I haven't heard of anyone else having it after such a long period of time. (???)

      Hi Sherri, well they do say that it takes a year to completely get over this operation. I asked my sister-in-law, she had her first one 2 years ago and has just had the second one done. She said that she still gets the occasional twinge, like if she turns in her sleep, but not on a regular basis and not very painful. 

      I am still getting a fair amount of pain but I am 3 months. I hope that by the time I get to 9 that I would be pain free.

      Maybe someone else on the forums will be able to help you. I hope so.

      Caz
