2 days ago · Has anyone had a tight band feeling after total knee replacement? in Joint Replacements

I have tried water therapy and up to this point has not really helped much if at all. My ROM is excellent. The tight band that I feel starts on the inside of my knee and wraps over my kneecap and goes under my knee. It feels like a wide band or tourniquet. I also have some effusion (fluid) on the lateral side of my knee which the Dr.says will go away as well in time. Praying he is right!

Wow…I can't imagine having to live with what you have described and what I am also going through! I am 10 weeks post surgery and I just went to the doctor yesterday who once again reassured me that the band feeling and the fluid on my knee would go away in time and that is all normal. It is very uncomfortable and painful at times. I need to have my other knee done as well and am fearful now of having the same issue. Good luck. I hope your issue resolves soon.

I am also at 8 weeks and still suffering a lot of tightness and some swelling but my range of motion is very good. What was your range of motion when you had your manipulation? I don't see my doctor for another 6 weeks who told me at 6 weeks that the swelling and tightness would go away in time.

I am 8 weeks post tkr and my knee flexion is 134 1/2. My guess is your PT was telling you not to push it because you were so stiff and sore after you did yard work. I have been told to keep stretching to your limit… whatever that might be. I have been told 135 is usually the max the leg will bend.

Wow, that's certainly not encouraging. How is your range of motion with the tightness? My ROM is excellent so I don't think it's scar tissue. Hopeful mine will go away and praying all works out for you as well.
