Nov 14, 2019 · 15 Days Out: Scar Discomfort in Joint Replacements

I just got the staples out of my second knee but with the first one I was told to massage topical vitamin E oil in every day. It seems to have worked, scar feels fine and is minimal. Of course I also eventually used a box of Scar Away strips. Wait until scar all healed together though to avoid chance of infection.

Yes, I asked my first surgeon about it but he didn't reccomend it. Besides I'm positive my insurance wouldn't cover it and that's a must. I do agree theres nothing like OEM.

Sure I'd share but I truely don't know why. Maybe the meds? I was on tylenol, tramadol and norco same as at home before surgery; or maybe because I would be home alone. Actually, aside from the great meals (lucked out) I remember almost nothing from the first week. It all felt like a three week hospital stay because rehab was a hospital bed and same meds. Sorry I know this isnt much help.

Well, of course had nothing to compare with but I was in the hospital seven days plus a rehab place for an additional two weeks. Then of course the usual twice a week outpatient rehab for a few months. But aside from the kneeling pain, a little numbness and occasional pain which must be just the muscles around the knee, yeah I think I'm doing good
. Hope you keep on doing well with both knees.🙂

I hadn't thought of kneepads before your previous post. Thanks for putting in a link. I just may get those for the odd kneeling at home moments.🙂

Hi Justin, I was not told anything about kneeling or not. That's why I was so surprised by it. Mostly just kneel on Sundays at communion. I am having a second tkr Oct. 30 and was hoping the next one would be better, but it doesn't sound like it.

Had a knee replacement nine months ago (January). When I kneel, i can feel the replacement and it hurts. Am I alone or is this normal?

May 7, 2019 · Burning after total knee replacement in Joint Replacements

Hi Irol, I had a spot of burning on the inside of the knee. Both the PT and Dr. Said it was a nerve they sometimes have to move or cut and it would subside, and it has 😁 Maybe your is the same and just nee dd's s a little more time. Wish you the best.
