TKR pain

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm 6 weeks and 3 days after my TKR surgery. Sometimes I have pain on the back of my upper leg. This probably sounds strange but has anyone tried Bengay?

    I havent tried it, but I did get a prescription for diclofenac sodium gel..helps a lot!

    I read that during surg the use a tourniquet on upper thigh that can cause some lingering pain in that area..I had it also in the inner front of thigh.

    I regularly use IcyHot roll on on my arthritic back. Helps a great deal! After my knee replacements solved my arthritis THERE, pain in OTHER areas began to stand out.

    Roll one are good because you don't have to get the substance on your hands. If you DO use Ben Gay cream, wear latex gloves!

    Try Voltaren Gel (RX in the USA).  Second best topical anti-inflammatory on the planet.
