    I think I'm right in saying that that is pretty normal, I had pkr, and I still get shin pain, thigh pain plus of cause the knee pain, lots and lots of ice packs, massage, and do your physio, if you read back through, you'll see the same, and some other ideas, hope it settles😓

    You are readjusting to a proper walk and stride. Soft tissue is being realigned. The muscle is being pulled away from the bone to a small degree. You will find yourself going through a lot of different strains and pains as body parts realign from bad posture and walking due to the ailing knee

    Hi there,  I had my second op. Three weeks ago as well.  The pain in my knee was horrendous last night so I checked with the record of pain that I kept for the first knee which I had eleven weeks ago.  Weeks three to six are by far the worst so hang in there. Don't try to go without the pain relief, it's not worth it and there are no medals.  Take as much as you can and ice and rest intermittently.    Good luck.
