Fri, Feb 7 2:03pm · Has anyone had a tight band feeling after total knee replacement? in Joint Replacements

I am a year post TKR as well and still have the band feeling although not quite as tight as in the beginning. As you said, it's not painful, just annoying especially when getting in and out of car or going up and down stairs.

I had stem cell on my left knee. It did not work for me. I was near bone on bone and over 65. I paid $6000 which at the time, I felt was worth it if it worked. I ended up having a total knee replacement 6 months later and I'm very glad I did.

I am 4+ months post OP and still have the tight band and pain with flexion and extension. I am going to another Dr. tomorrow for my other knee and will ask him about it. I am wondering if it will ever go away!

Thanks for the information. I just found a Dr. Here in Ca. that does robotic TKR. I went to a presentation that he gave and am very impressed with him and procedure. It is so much more precise and less invasive. I have straight Medicare with supplement so need to see if they will cover. Hope so.

That is so good to hear! Where did you have it done and was it a total or partial? I know they started with partials and now doing some totals, but not many Dr doing them yet. I'm doing a lot of research so hopefully will find a good surgeon who does them. Thanks for your input!

Yes, it is. I had surgery on my left knee in January and have had this tight band and fluid around my knee ever since so I am hesitant to have it done the same way. I'll keep researching! Thank you for your input!
