I had a first TKR 10 weeks ago, after 4 weeks they had to reopen and reline as it was infected. Now 6 weeks after second op the burning sensation and tightness from ankle to hip is keeping me awake at night and in pain through the day. My knee is red and hot but my surgeon is just monitoring it. The skin is fragile and the lightest knock skins it and makes it bleed. Getting in the car is a struggle, and I can only sit on a bus with my leg stuck in the isle. I can straighten my knee when doing exercising but to bend it back I can only get to about 80 degrees. The physio tried to push it back but the pain was too much and I was sick. She said to keep trying. Has anyone else had this problem, and is there light at the end of the tunnel . I am taking Codeine 4 times a day the pain is so bad.
