Good morning, everyone. I had a TKR on 2/7 which makes me almost 4 weeks post-surgery. I was doing very well my third week- getting around the house okay, minimal pain and not using the cane all the time. However, with a new PT regime, I have had a lousy few days. I can't bear as much weight on my new knee as I could last week and the pain has increased instead of decreased. Is this normal? Could I have overdone my PT exercises? Snowy weather and cancellations have made it impossible for me to ask my therapist for another few days but would love some other perspectives. Has anyone "overdone" PT? Did I overdo it myself because I attempted light housework when I felt good? Or is this just the ups and downs of healing from a TKR?
