I had 2 knee replacements, one on Aug. 28th, 2016 and the other Nov. 2, 2016. I was doing good, then had a setback and back to therapy, now doing pool exercises. My problem is not the knee, so much (except I can't kneel without feeling like I'm pinching a nerve on the kneecap) but the thigh muscles right above the knee are very sore, (like you feel when exercising too much) and it is hard to stand up without aid from sitting. It's very frustrating, and I don't know why it feels this sore. I wonder, did they cut muscle and it just takes longer to heal? I'd like a doctor to answer these questions. I had the therapist do dry needling and it helped for a short while, then the pain was just as bad, so it's a waste of time for me. They told me it could take a year to feel normal, but I'm thinking it's not going to happen.
