Hi there, 42 years old, I’m looking for some advice following my TKR 3 weeks 2 days ago (not that I’m counting 😊.
Prior to having my TKR surgery I had 4 operations to try to preserve my knee including leg realignment, horse cartilage implant two sets of micro fracture, bone graft as there was a 5 cm hole in my knee and the list goes on, the long and short is nothing worked and after 3 years on and off crutches I now have a shiny new knee!!
I am more than aware that the pain is going to be off the scale at times and movement will will be restricted particularly due to the additional scar tissue from previous surgeries. But I would like to say I’m actually doing quite well 85 degree bend walking ok and fairly in control until today......
My knee has gone really shiny hard and hotter than before, movement appears to be restricted and gosh the scar is stinging like mad.... any ideas or just part of the healing?
Spent 4 days on iv antibiotics straight after surgery due to suspicions of an underlying infection from previous surgeries ........ a little worried 😧
