Knee pain after knee replacement

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain after knee replacement


Avatar n tn Continue physiotherapy as this is the most important phase of your knee replacement. You have surgical pain till 4 weeks but after that the pain is mostly relieved by intense physiotherapy. Follow up near your orthopedic surgeon and physiotherapist. After 12-16 weeks most of the pain will decrease but you have to continue some form of your exercise even after that to gain strength in your quadriceps and other leg muscles. Take care!
Avatar m tn Also, a few months after the Knee Replacement, the doctor performed a manipulation, to forcibly bend the knee joint further One of his comments was that he had never seen so much scar tissue built up. I wonder if the 4 previous surgeries, too much exercise, or even a 11 hour car trip less than 3 weeks after the surgery could have contributed to her knee pain issues.
Avatar n tn Your friends doctor should be treating his pain. Pain after surgery can be painful. I would advise calling the doctor back and telling them he is coming in as he is in so much pain! This will allow the doctor to see himself the pain he is in. Did he have his PCP do the sugery or a surgeon? He can also go to the ER and get some help.

Avatar f tn Hi, My name is Erika and I am search for a saver that can help my dad with his knees. He is in pain 20/7 even after his knee’s cortisone infusion. He is 71, very athletic and active. However, now he seems even getting depressed. It is hard for him to walk, stand, seat for longer than 30min. My dad is from Brazil and he lives with me. He has no insurance and we can’t afford out of pocket surgery. I am desperately searching for help.
Avatar f tn But the pain has increased and more troubling my leg is beginning to bow. Most of the pain is not in the knee but in the bone below the knee. Recently I've begun to develop pain in the muscles behind my thigh and calf. I take Enbrel and Meloxicam for my joint and to control the swelling in my joints. Because I had to come off my meds to do the surgery my knees were swollen and very painful. But the doctor still did the surgery.
Avatar m tn I went to ortheropedic in Jan and was told I need a knee replacement but he tried me on steroid injections which i have had four and up until last week they worked ok. But the last one wore off after 2mths gave me no warning work up in terrible pain last thur went to A&E they said they could not help sent me round to my rehumatology clinic the consultant said she would give me one more injection to get me home.
Avatar f tn Total knee replacements take time to heal properly. Trust me, I have had both knees replaced and know many other with arthritis, bot osteo and rhematoid that have had knee replacement as well. Each of us heal in our own time frame but the general length of time for all to be really right again seems to be around 5 - 6 months. At three months, which was what I was told I should be doing well, I still had a lot of PT and work to do.
