Total knee replacement operation.

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi ,I am 3 weeks post op.and just as I think I am doing ok i feel something new is happening, my operated knee keeps having a really cold sensation going right through to the bone and I get stabbing pains too .Don't misunderstand me having the op far out weighs the arthritic pain ,I was just wondering if anyone is experiencing the same sort of thing .

      Thank you for replying Diane and Pam , looks like we are at the same stage then .I go for my 1st Physio gym session tomorrow(Tuesday).At the moment I don't think that my knee is ever going to bend .I will have to see what happens at physio gym . I will say that my knee and leg and into my foot is sore and I am on crutches.Tried not useing crutches ,but that wasn't a good idea. How are you both doing xx.

      I am on a cane and I have a band feeling on my thigh. My nurse said it was due to the turnic and it will go away. My rom is @ 100 but it gets so stiff. I am FINALLY able to sleep at night (found my sweet spot). The nurse took my stripes off so now I have nothing covering my incision
