Mon, Feb 10 1:43pm · Has anyone had a tight band feeling after total knee replacement? in Joint Replacements

Yes I did have the same surgeon. My in hospital experience could not have been more different. Same hospital but after first TKR care was not good. Second time around awesome care from staff and nurses. I was bone on bone. Same PT and same exercises. I think knowing what to expect helped. After my first TKR I experienced foot drop while in hospital and that slowed my getting up and moving. Staff not very good. I had to spend extra time in hospital until the problem got better. Next time around so much better. Lots of support and excellent care. Don't know why there was such a difference in the care I received. So I think better in hospital experience helped but also I was familiar with the after care and PT and knew what to expect.

I didn't think I would get my second knee done
Then said i would wait a year. But 8 months later got the second one done and the whole operation was so much easier than the first time
I did have some sciatic nerve pain that took awhile to go away but it is all good now. Just notice some aches in this cold weather

Hi sorry to hear about your problems. I have had both knees replaced and was very hard for months after surgery. But all of a sudden things got better and now I can walk and hike with almost no pain at all. One knee especially is very sensitive to touch but only if bump into something or my dog decides to stand on it
But it really does get better. So glad I got them done but the first 6 months was a struggle

hi saw your comments about staples??? I had both knees replaced and never had staples. Just steri strips across the knee. Healed great and a very thin scar line. Interesting.

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
