Hi @nellieo – Welcome to Connect! I think you will find a lot of kindred souls here. I had a TKR in 2017 and another one in January 2019. Thankfully, I didn't have that burning and stinging sensation but I've read of many people who did. I'm so sorry that you are still having it after nearly 9 months. That must be really frustrating. Here is a thread that might interest you:

Can you share more about how often you have the burning and what triggers it? Also, have you found anything that helps alleviate the sensation?
Wishing you the best!

I had a tkr one year ago May 2018. Around month 6 I started developing stinging, achy, burning feeling on knee area. I had been referred to PT where therapist attempted to deal with pain to no avail. Surgeon referred me to a Physiatrist. Saw Physiatrist and diagnosed with CRPS (Complex regional pain syndrome) a nerve condition. Had two treatments where they inject the knee with numbing agent. It has definitely made a difference as I don’t feel the degree of pain I had prior to shots. Knee not 100% but pretty close as I still have a small amount of discomfort. Seek another opinion other then surgeon as his work is done with knee replacement. Hope this helps
