Average level of pain after TKR?
I had right knee TKR 6 months ago. Perfect ROM and extension (after hard work), functioning very well. However, I am fluctuating between what I would call “awareness” of the artificial joint – just a little sore – to aching, to moderate pain. Depends a little on activity level, weather, who knows, but it is always present, and I resent it. Some (many?) people are pain free at this stage. Should I be concerned, or will the magical 1-year mark fix this?

You’re so fortunate! 👍🏻
Voltaren is also available as a gel. It's a 1% solution, applied topically, and is OTC.
I also used cbd oil I got from my chiropractor that seemed to help….
So does it have to be prescribed or can I purchase in the store because I have a pcp that will not prescribe certain medication and pain medication or anything of a sort
I got from my chiropractor I don’t use prescription strength most likely….
