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

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!

My Dr. Told me to take Meloxicam after surgery which is an nsaid to reduce swelling and inflammation.

I need to have my second knee done and since I have had some problems with my first one, I'm considering the Mako robotic assisted surgery and was wondering if anyone has had this done and your experience and advantages, if any.

I agree. All I wanted to do was nap for the first 3-4 weeks!
