Jun 24, 2019 · Has anyone had a tight band feeling after total knee replacement? in Joint Replacements

Sorry first portion of reply cut off. They brought a CPM machine to my home prior to surgery so I could learn the exercises prior to doing it with pain. The PT I saw said he noticed that clients of his that had a CPM machine post surgery did much better in general. I loved the machine and got on it daily for 8 weeks. It was helpful that my CPM machine came with an actual trainer that helped with suggestions, albeit mostly over the phone. I had no problem with scar tissue. Hope this is helpful

I saw said he noticed that clients of his tha t had a CPM machine seemed to much better in general? I loved the machine and got on it daily for 8 weeks to "get my knee stretched out each day".

In the same position, with Right TKA which is doing well, but had severe pain in right foot for 4 months and has turned to more numbness and tingling at the 5 months today. Lyrica 75mg 4 x a day in the beginning and now down to once a day has been a life savor for me. Im pretty certain I would not have gotten to full extension, flexion in my knee without it! The foot pain was effecting my knee PT in the beginning. I also used 50mg Tramadol as needed, more in the beginning and now 1 x day. I was very nervous it would not improve or never go away, but I have seen a great improvement in the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately i cant exercise much or the foot gets really aggravated, i do go to a therapy pool 5-6 days a week which I really think helps a lot. Im 55 and exercised daily prior to surgery and had no underlying conditions other than arthritis. Im considering exercising more and just increasing the Tramadol as I believe the more active I am the sooner the nerve will heal??? Would appreciate input from others on this. You are lucky your doctor acknowledged the pain/tingling as mine said he had never heard of such a thing?

Sorry your having pins and needles in your foot. But I am almost 5 months out and the severe nerve pain I had in my right foot after right TKA has just recently turned to pins and needles rather than pain. So hopefully your closer to recovery than you know. Hope your recovery is smooth and the nerve or foot pain heals quickly.

I had a very similar pain in R foot following Right TKA. I was told pain may resolve as swelling does but not for certain. I am now almost 5 months out and the pain is still the same. I have found that Lyrica worked much better than Gabapentin for me anyhow. I would really like to get off the Lyrica but without it increased activity/exercising causes great pain in foot and difficulty sleeping at night. If I find any better advise I will be sure to pass it along.

Thanks for your response. I do hate taking the pain medication I was on Mobic, tramadol/ultram, oxycodone and then Lyrica for complication of foot pain, for 2-3 months. Im thankful I did as it helped me to be able to push therapy and my knee is at 0-135. I am still taking Lyrica and Occasional Tramadol so that I am able to go back to work and do most activities of daily living .I am still trying to figure out what is causing foot pain but until then these pills help keep me active. I kept trying to go off pain pills during PT and the therapists encouraged me to continue to pain pills so that I could get full extension and flexion. Also used CBD oil and got relief for knee pain but not foot pain.
