I had a left TKR on 21/01/2016 and has been doing well until last week when I developed pain below the knee close to the inside of my leg. The pain is excruciating when I lift my leg off the floor when walking or even when I am sitting and try to lift my foot off the floor. Standing for any period of time is difficult and when I start walking after standing even for a few minutes it is pure agony. My pt gave me excersises for a pinched nerve in my lower back that invloves bending my upper body forward and letting my harms hang towards the floor. The moment I bend over the pain kills me and I have to stop. It almost feels like the pain I had before the TKR but far worse. I have been using my TENS for the past three days, elevated the leg, iced etc. but the swelling isn't going down and the pain is not getting better. Has anybody experienced something similar?
