Burning after total knee replacement

Hi @grammygolfs, you are having just the opposite reaction to the burning, I have to keep moving or the burning increases until I can't bare it, once I move it is like a release, but then starts to increase when I stop. It sounds to me like maybe you do have a cyst, which I have been told sometimes happens, mostly behind the knee, which is where the nerves are. So as you apply pressure to the joint, fluid causes more pressure on the cyst and then applies pressure to the nerves. I hope your visit is successful and you find some answers.

No…I have the same experience as you. I can walk distances but cannot stand still or they burn. They're ok when I sit with feet up. I doubt it's a cyst as it's really not in the knee, but just below to just above and kind of the whole area in general; it doesn't hurt/burn behind the knee. I fear it's nerve issues. I don't want neuropathy!
