    That doesn't sound right. I had no bruising at all. Has it been continuous or does it come and go and have you seen a doctor about it ? If you have, what did they say? Maybe ask for a second opinion? Good luck.

    Anna, mine will be 18 mths at end of July also, and I still have pain, swelling, warmness, and stiffness. STILL doing PT, water and land PT. had MUA at 9 mths po with a sscope to clean out scar tissue. Have appt in Aug with surgeon about possibly doing another sscope to clean scar tissue..... I wish to hell i had NEVER had this surgery. It's a huge money maker for the surgeons. I finally found a surgeon that I trust, after firing the one that did my initial TKR. So frustrating... more than frustrating.......
