On 2nd February I had a TKR and patella resurfacing. The TKR was a complete success and I can walk without pain and within 10 days had a 110 degree bend. The physio didn't want to see me any more. The Consultant was thrilled by my progress at my 12 week check up as I strolled into his office without a limp. However, stairs are a completely different story and by the end of the day it is agony. I often have to crawl up them. Surprisingly, going down isn't quite as painful. I can feel my patella catching and clicking when I bend the knee, as if it's not gliding properly. Please, does anyone else suffer with this pain using stairs and will it improve with time? Or, do I need to return to see the physio or Consultant for some strengthening exercises? Any advice would be much appreciated.
