tripped and fell full weight on my TKR

Posted , 4 users are following.

hi I am 8 weeks post op and tonight I tripped and fell straight on to my knee...wasn't that sore at the time but hot and achey now.. although seems to be the soft tissue at the back of my knee that hurts more.... I did ice it straight away.... so annoyed as I was just starting to feel as though I was getting somewhere.... :-(

    Hi Mary 

    you must be feeling bad

    but I went to see my surgeon today and he grabbed my knee and bent it right back ...the pain was terrible it felt as if he'd broken it ...he said a

    i'll be in pain tonight and he was so right ...he also said if I'd warned you you'd have tensed up  and I couldn't have done it 

    then he said can't hurt this knee no matter what you do

    so I'm just saying don't worry as you've done no harm to your knee just made it sore 

    plenty of ice and painkillers until it settles back down 

    take it easy Mary 


    also 8 weeks post op

      yikes, jean!!!! your surgeon and mine must be related. did he do that to increase your bend? how is it feeling now?  has the pain diminished?  are you following your own advice and doing plenty of ice and painkillers?  hope you are feeling better and it was worth the pain.

    ouch i can feel that for you , i should think you may have pulled you knee before it was ready , but hay ho youve done it , keep up with the ice and rest , and if your worried see your gp ,they do say that its really difficult to do any damage ,you will get there in the end x
