Hi @luckycat505 and welcome to Connect. That must be so frustrating to have this discomfort after the knee replacement. I moved your post to the Joint Replacement (https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/joint-replacements/) group so that you can connect with others who have similar experiences.

To make sure I am understanding you correctly, you had the knee replacement a couple months ago, and since then the skin on the side of your knee has been incredibly tight, and that prevents you from bending you leg out all the way. You find some relief while in the shower but so far you have been unable to get any relief from you doctor. Is that all correct?

@luckycat505, Sorry to hear about the pain and swelling you are having in your knee. From your description it sounds like you had a knee replacement surgery six months ago. There is another discussion that you may want to read and post any questions you may have with other members who have had similar problems with a knee replacement.

You mentioned getting a second opinion. Have you received a second opinion yet or are you still thinking about it?
