Nerves cut when you had TKR. I too had same issue. So nerve is issue. One year later still burning so I finally had a nerve ablation and have felt 100% better.

I have had the nerve ablation treatment, it worked for me, no more severe pain, pins and needles, heavy tightness. You are right about it being nerve damage, that’s exactly what my treating physician diagnosed the problem as. Diagnosed with CRPS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Good luck getting treatment.

I had just one TKR and was a slow healer. I too was in pain and had flexión issues, MUA, PT… I was NOT progressing until my 5th month and even then it was tough. I am now 14 months out and I can say that flexibility is great but it took time. I can walk with no problems or hint of a knee replacement except for the scar. Just keep at it.

I had similar symptoms after tkr and was diagnosed with CRPS by Physiatrist. CRPS is a nerve condition. Maybe seek second opinion.

Wed, May 8 4:19pm · burning after total knee replacement in Joint Replacements

I had a tkr one year ago May 2018. Around month 6 I started developing stinging, achy, burning feeling on knee area. I had been referred to PT where therapist attempted to deal with pain to no avail. Surgeon referred me to a Physiatrist. Saw Physiatrist and diagnosed with CRPS (Complex regional pain syndrome) a nerve condition. Had two treatments where they inject the knee with numbing agent. It has definitely made a difference as I don’t feel the degree of pain I had prior to shots. Knee not 100% but pretty close as I still have a small amount of discomfort. Seek another opinion other then surgeon as his work is done with knee replacement. Hope this helps

It’s been almost 1 year since my Tkr on right knee. I too feel tightness, phantom pain at times as though knee being strangled. No answers as to why this is so.
