Pain months after Total Knee Replacement

I kept up exercising but then went back to a full time job, on my feet 8 hours with children. The vacation was extensive walking, hills, runes. Great vacation planned over a year ago. My knee almost feels like it did before tkr. I will go back to icing and see what happens. Thanks for feedback

@cgbi I am a year and a half post TKR on my L knee and if I really over-exercise I do feel it but it's manageable pain. My R knee is about 6 or 7 years post TKR and I tend to feel more discomfort in that one when I exercise a lot. A lot depends on the knee I think. My pain is as I said, manageable so I don't get too upset about it. It does not stop me from doing anything, although I do not do anything extremely strenuous like @jeffkirc playing tennis, and as much as I wish I could ski, I don't do that either. I do exercise in a gym and do a lot of elliptical with just some underlying fatigue in my knees.

As suggested if your pain continues you should call your ortho.

@cgbi - If nothing else, the icing and the resting will make you more comfortable! Will you keep me posted in a week or so to see how things are feeling?
