Has anyone had anything similar? It is 7 1/2 weeks post op TKR and as I've written on this site, have the usual post op issues and complaints with swelling, bending fatigue, and insomnia due to pain. My doctor is 4 hours away in NYC and I will call in the morning but was wondering if anyone else had anything like this. The scar is healing beautifully except for the top one closest to the thigh. I showed it to my PT and she said it may be a stitch wanting to come out. When she felt it, she felt a stitch and after I worked out, she thought it may have come out after workout. I also showed it to another therapist the folllowing day and he said it does not look infected and not to be concerned. I have had major surgery before but many years ago and somehow remembered there were areas that healed faster than others. I don't like to put myself on antibiotics but I always have a Rx because of travel. I put a small amount of Aquaphor on the area because I've used it after surgery in the past.
So once again I am writing to the gurus of TKR for feedback. Thank you....with gratitude, Marilyn
