I am almost 7 months after first TKR. At first physio session I asked cause of thigh pain and was told it was likely due to use of tornaque? Whenever standing in shower or standing anywhere, within couple minutes I feel pins and needles in foot ( which also starts going knumb) and severe pain in upper leg, back of thigh and glute. Continuing to stand or if walking more than say 100m becomes increasingly more painful forcing to sit for temporary respite.
Pain during the night can usually be accommodated by seeking alternative posture with pillow between knees.
I am keenly interested to know if similar problems are/have been experienced by others and what remedies can be tried. I see consultant in 6 weeks (TKR on t'other leg) so can expect his response then. In meantime I am being told the ongoing pain is most likely caused by sciatic nerve being agrivated/unsettled/disturbed? This is the link I'm wanting to explore, please? Thanks.
