Total knee replacement

Posted , 3 users are following.

Now 8 weeks post OP and part from doing too much to soon and having to scale back a little all seems on track. Still have an amount of swelling, not quite straight and at 115 ROM. Physio doing weekly deep tissue massage, painful but helping to reduce.

On exercise bike and no problem up/down stairs but do have clicking when walking. Has anybody else had this and does it recede as the swelling disappears?

    I'm 11 weeks and have the clicking and popping. It's normal and I heard it may or may not go away. No problem just something in the process of healing with your TKR. I think we should all join a traveling knee popping band. Lol good luck and a rapid healing to you.

    Hi Mark it sounds like your on the right track to recovery but don't go like a bull at a gate. The clicking never goes away but it's better than the pain and discomfort you will have had before your TKR.

    All on track...

    The clicking may take 12-18 months to resolve.  I personally think it will never go away.  Small price to pay to walk with no pain.

    Swelling means you're doing too much.  Back off, heal.  There will be advances, setbacks and plateaus.  Be prepared for all of them.
