I am just over 2 weeks post op having had a TKR on my my right leg. I have struggled with pain relief since day 1 and am now on a low dose slow release tramadol and also ibuprofen. My main concern is the lack of bend in my knee. i struggled to reach 80 deg before i left hospital but this has reduced greatly over the last week. My physio says i must push through the pain to see any results but i find this so hard when it hurts so much. It feels so stiff and tight like the whole thing is going to explode!! Beginning to wish I had never had this done and its really starting to drag me time - the time of year doesn't help either with everyone rushing around christmas shopping and partying! Any advice and encouragement would be appreciated.
