Aug 18, 2019 · Has anyone had a tight band feeling after total knee replacement? in Joint Replacements

Hi, and yes, I have heard of nerve ablation, it's also called Rhizotomy. We do those at my office. Always for the neck or back, and I have never seen my doctor do them on the knee area. It's a thought though.. I will ask him about it. I am sorry to hear you are having pain from it and a feeling of a charley horse. That's just awful. I don't have pain at all just the tightness. I will let you know what my doctor says and if he thinks it might be helpful.

I fist posted in this therad back in March. First knee was done in Oct. 2018, second one in Dec. 2018. I still have the tight band feeling in my first knee. It doesn't hurt but is annoying. I have found nothing that helps. I work in the medical field and in fact work at a surgery center among the staff that did my knees. I have read through this entire thread and no where have I seen anything about nerve damage. I am thinking that is what happened to me. My doctor won't admit it, but what else could it be? I understand I am still in my first year of recovery, but not having this feeling in my second knee tells me this could be the answer since nothing helps. I find during work that I don't notice it, I am on my feet all day in a surgery center. Anyhow.. I just thought I would update my progress. Thanks ahead for any resposes.

Oh man, a year? I think I will be driven nuts by then… I guess we learn to live with it. I don't have any pain.. I hope you can find some relief.

Thank you for your reply.. it's such a strange feeling, it doesn't hurt it's just there.. only when walking, standing etc. It's nice to know I'm not alone in this…

I have been having this very same issue. My first and left knee was done October 2018.. I have had this tight, rubber band sqeezing sensation since the numbness went away. Surgical numbness.. I still have numbness around that knee. It doesn't hurt but drives me nuts at times.. It hasn't changed in severity either. It's been 6 months now and I am over it. I am considering dry needling to see if can loosen up whatever is causing this sensation. My physician also says it will go away some day. I had my right knee done in December 2018.. it feels more normal.. no tightness post op. I would appreciate and advice help.. My range of motion is excellent in both knees. Thank you
