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

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.
