    Hi. I had a tremendous amount of pain and swelling, was referred back to orthopaedics and was told that it's quite normal for the swelling to last for a year or so. I too have swelling at the back of the knee which is limiting my bend. I am about 105 Deg but can't seem to get it to bend further. The consultant's advice was regular icing, several times a day (& prior to exercises) for however long it takes to get rid of the swelling. Hope you feel less pain soon but if not, ask your doctor to refer you back to orthopaedics. Good luck!

    The TKR path, a linear one it is not, my young padawan.  Memory searching must you do.  The cause of the swelling, appear it will.
