Yes I had that tight band feeling after both my TKR. It took several months for it to go away. I went to PT and she did a lots of work on the knee to loosen it up. Massage the whole knee with Vitamin K oil really helped a lot too. Now post op for two and three years and left knee feels great. Right knee a little tight once in a awhile if I neglect to do my stretching exercises.

That is reassuring to hear. This tight band feeling at 11 weeks is just as tight as it was in the beginning and is not lessening. I have some fluid around the knee which I wonder is causing the tight band feeling. The Dr does not want to aspirate for fear of introducing infection into the joint. I'm trying to stay positive, but it's difficult without any real answers.
