I am nearly 8 months following my total knee replacement. I have a neuropathic type of pain which has been present since the replacement. I have a numbness and tingling type sensation which is constant, and i cannot bear anyone or anything touching this part, it sends out a shooting type of pain. Initially I could not even have a sheet over it. I also have a burning type of pain down my leg. My physio recommended that I try different textures rubbing the knee to desensitise the area from towel, tissue to toothbrush! I haven't tried the toothbrush yet!!
I do still experience swelling to the leg
My surgeon prescribed baclofen and amitriptyline at night. My GP is still juggling the dosages around, and I am still taking regular paracetamol and brufen.
