What happened with your surgery? I had both knees replaced. After the first one said I wouldn't do it again but eight months later did the other. It takes at least six months to feel like it was worth it. I am not regretting getting it done. Shot only work for a time and then they don't help

I had to smile a little when you said you walk like your leg is made of wood. I said the same thing to my husband. I found that I just needed to try and walk with a normal gait. I was favoring my leg and trying to walk without bending the knee. Once I concentrated on walking normally things improved.

Yes I had that tight band feeling after both my TKR. It took several months for it to go away. I went to PT and she did a lots of work on the knee to loosen it up. Massage the whole knee with Vitamin K oil really helped a lot too. Now post op for two and three years and left knee feels great. Right knee a little tight once in a awhile if I neglect to do my stretching exercises.

Please consider tkr. I was bone in bone. Now after replacement I can walk without pain. The first three weeks are tough after but it is worth it. I have friends who did the tkr also and are doing great with no complications.

Apr 30, 2018 · Feeling Skipped Beats, Palpitations: What could this possibly be? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Pretty much all you describe can be perfectly normal for you. I have had the same thing for 20 years and still dong fine but it can be very scary. I don't know your age but it is a common occurance I am told. Also stress makes it worse. So they tell you to try and relax but pretty hard when your heart is thumping away and skipping beats. I do my best to ignore them and often it is days when I realize all of a sudden that they have lessened or stopped. A good hard cough will usually stop them for a time. Sorry you are having such problems with getting tested. Where do you llive?
