TKR causing tightness and burning 2 1/2 years out: Scar tissue?
Hi @lukyme, I'm a year plus out from my TKR but have been fortunate not to have burning or scar tissue. There are a couple of other discussions that may provide some helpful information for you.

@contentandwell, @rmeddings, @randythehack and @ruthannejoan may be able to provide some suggestions.
I did find an interesting article but not sure it describes symptoms exactly.
Anterior knee pain after a total knee arthroplasty: What can cause this pain?
Did the doctor say why he thought scar tissue might be the cause of your pain?

@johnbishop @lukyme I too have not experienced that type of pain. The worst I have is some discomfort in my R knee, the one that had the first TKR, after prolonged exercise. Other than that, and not getting my flex beyond 120° I have been very fortunate.
