Hi Irol, I had a spot of burning on the inside of the knee. Both the PT and Dr. Said it was a nerve they sometimes have to move or cut and it would subside, and it has 😁 Maybe your is the same and just nee dd's s a little more time. Wish you the best.

I am only 1 month out from my Right TKR. My doctor and physical therapists acted like he had never heard of anyone experiencing burning with a TKR before. It's been keeping me awake at night, the burning runs the length of my incision from the bottom to just above the knee cap. I did have a burning pain on the inside of the right knee but the therapist said to massage it gently in an upwards motion. I am trying gentle massage on the incision. Some gentle pressure with the palm of my hand. But in a few minutes, it starts again, so I am awake at 4AM.
