I never had problem like this with my right TKR. My left knee is still twice the size of my right and I could fry an egg on it at night. I get lightning, stabbing pains out of the blue on the outside and (thanks to Google) I think the sweet spot is somewhere on my lateral gastrocnemius tendon. My leg extension is still really poor, nowhere near flat, and I can still only do about 90 degrees at best. Saw the surgeon's clinician two weeks ago and she thought all was ok but fixed for me to see the organ grinder early November. I'm thinking of contacting him for a private consultation as I can't deal with this much longer and I'm beginning to worry about my employers' taking a dim view of the prolonged absence, particularly as I was back after 6 weeks last time. I thought it strange not to be given ibuprofen either in hospital or to take home. That at least has had some positive effect.
