Soreness and stiffness 10 months post TKR
I am now 10 months out after a right TKR…At 3 months I had about 115 range of motion and felt pretty good and was dismissed from PT. I went back at about 8 months as I felt I was getting more stiff and sore and still had the tight band feeling and feel like things are pulling. I did have significant arthritis prior to my surgery and do have arthritis in several areas. Of course my surgeon says everything is fine and my X-ray looks good. He won't see me till September which is my one year appointment. Should I be concerned. I'm still in PT, doing some myofascial release and some strengthening again. I also suffer from lower back pain and some IT band issues since the replacement. Any suggestions would be greatly suggested. I know they say a year or more but I'm so over this…I recently walked 18,000 steps at Universal but was very sore in the evening and used my knee sleeve due to walking so much. I do most everything except getting up off the floor but by late afternoon am really sore. ROM is still 115 if I use a band but it hurts but I can pull it. Can't take nsaids…currently on 900mg Gabapentil and Tylenol.
