Pain in side of knee

Posted , 7 users are following.

Good afternoon, I had a TLKR 4th November last year, all going well until I walked too long and went back to square one

That was middle of January, so started of slowly again and just feeling like I am making progress and now I have started with intense pain in a bone on the outside of my knee

Could this have anything to do with the umbness which has eased off a little this past week

Thank youfor ny help or info Kimx

    1st thing get back with your surgeon for a review. He might want to do an Dr at just to mAke sure everything has healed in the proper placement. Give it some real rest.....several says of minimal excercise. Then start slowly. Just a guess but your early extensive walking may have caused a bone bruise and only rest will help. Start icing several times a day and use an anti inflammatory to take away the pain. One of the biggest problems with this surgery is wanting to go to far to fast.

    You did a marathon before you coped with running round the block. Before the muscles were strong enough.  The pain could be the tendon complaining. It has to contend with being assaulted by your long walk. instead of doing distance, do time.   The numbness is caused by all your nerves that were severed.  They will tingle, burn get pins and needles, they have to heal and they will take their sweet merry time in healing. Constant massaging may help.  Before doing any distance, wait a good year!  It's not so long.

      Thank you Sueisobel, I am my own worst enemy. I had promised my grand daughter a short trip round town, which turned into three hours plus. I was so silly

      Thank you I will have to get my husband massageing it when its not so painful to touch. Kim x

      Oh dear, It is something we all done, it's a case of, let's go done there, then there's Oh look over there; what's that, It is so easy to do and before you know it another hour or two  has passed.  If you massage it yourself you will be able to give the  right pressure. The more you massage, the more it becomes desensitised .
