Tue, Mar 12 7:21pm · Cold Laser Therapy for Scar Tissue After Knee Replacement? in Joint Replacements

I encourage you to get off the oxycodone as soon as you can. Trying dropping down to say 2.5 pills a day in week 1., then 2 pills each day in week two. One Pill per day week 3, 1/2 a pill a day in week 4. That might work and help your body and mind adjust until your pill free.

Tue, Mar 12 7:12pm · scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

Had a TKR in Nov 2017. Went through a very vigorous PT, able to straighten my knee and bend it. My challenge is that after about 4 months, my knee was not feeling any better. I gave up walking because it walking makes my knee swell and tight. I went back to see my surgeon at both 6 months and after a year. He said everything is looking good and some people just take longer to heal. He said if I wanted to walk, take walks but don't overdo it.
I do believe my issues are with scar tissue that has developed above my knee cap. Again my surgeon did not clearly state that was my issue or not. He said it could be one of a few issues. Also, I know they cut through nerves with TKP surgery. Anyone else feel extensive numbness still in the knee after a year?
I'm now taking a more aggressive approach and manually with my fingers and knuckles applying pressure to areas I feel scar issue build up.
I'm now reading that several people have had arthroscopic removal of scar tissue which has helped some of you. I'm also hesitant about this surgery. Open to suggestion for relief without using medications.
