Apr 25, 2019 · Chronic,debilitating pain after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

Hi Ethan my pain could be due to tourniquet used during surgery or problems relating to Spinal Block used as anaesthesia or spinal problems from before surgery but I have never experienced pain so debilitating Thank you for your support

Hi Debbra all I have been offered so far is pregabalin which makes me very groggy Am still managing to do the physical therapy but as a public patient who lives in a rural area in Australia I have to do it by myself Not a lot of support Have to rely on my local GP who has sent me for a CT Spine Thank you hope you continue to improve

Apr 25, 2019 · Chronic,debilitating pain after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

Hi I am a public patient in Australia Dont see my orthopaedic surgeon until May 23rd Not a lot of support Rehab to be done at home by yourself!! Had Spinal block for surgery and a tourniquet was used around the thigh apparently for blood free surgery I had lots of bruising around thigh
Can only take Paracetemol as allergic to all opioid medications but am trying very hard to bend knee and not doing too badly My biggest problem is relentless burning pain down my thigh calf and foot Pregabalin (prescibed by my GP DR) helps a little bit but make me very groggy I get results of a CT tomorrow so pain could be also due to Spinal block or I think the pain may be attributed to past spinal problems so goodness knows what happens to you during surgery
Been told it may take months to resolve but I need to be able to drive very soon as my husband is having a hip replacement on 8th May so will have to stop the pregabalin or will not be able to drive Just wondered if others had experienced this type of pain after TKR Thank you

Hi after a right total knee replacement 6 weeks ago and problems finding I was allergic to all heavy duty painkillers so could only take paracetamol I now still have extremely unpleasant burning pain down my inner thigh back of calf and into my foot Could it be a result of tourniquet?
Finding rehab on my knee very difficult

Apr 24, 2019 · Numbness in foot after tkr in Joint Replacements

Hi Sorry you are suffering such terrible pain I had TKR just 6 weeks ago and from the word go I have had burning pain down the inside of my thigh past my knee to ankle Also on outside of thigh down leg to foot which is numb but burning as well My big toe feels as if it is being sawn off On Lyrica for 2 weeks but not helping much Had CT spine last week awaiting results Dr thought pain could be due to Spinal block irritating nerves or clot or infection Not anything like a sciatica pain I have had in the past Will let you know if I get any answers Take care
