I had total knee replacement surgery almost two weeks ago. I can straighten my leg well and can bend when walking. I still cannot lift my leg off the bed without hooking my other foot under my operated leg as there is no strength there. I am resting, using ice and elevating and still taking meds. My issue is when I sit on a chair and my leg is bent in the sitting position, I am getting sharp pains in the knee. These pains go as soon as I lie down or straighten my leg. Knee is still very swollen but I understand can take weeks to go down. I'm having my staples removed tomorrow and am hoping that this may alleviate the problem. I can bend my leg but it seems that keeping it bent is causing the pain. Any advice please?
