Tue, Feb 4 11:37am · IT band syndrome after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

Has anyone had trouble with their IT bands being tight and causing pain after TKR? I had right TKR in October 2018. Now I’m getting ready to have TKR on my left knee. My right knee continues to hurt but my surgeon says there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. All I can think is that my IL bands need stretching. Any comments?

I considered the stem cell injections but decided to try the PRP first. Unfortunately the PRP didn’t work for me and I wound up with TKR instead. I was 67 at the time. I am now 15 months out from the TKR and getting ready to have my other knee done.

A friend of mine went to a seminar about this. They were told that stem cell injections don’t work very well for people over 65 and are not recommended. Your doctor may think differently.

That’s one reason I don’t think this is a stitch. Also, the knot/bump is right at the bottom end of my incision. Maybe I’ll go back and make them look at it AGAIN. Both the surgeon and the nurse practitioner have checked it out twice.

Has anyone had a stitch that didn’t dissolve? I had TKR on my right knee 15 months ago. I’m now getting ready to have TKR on my left knee but my right knee Hurts worse than my left. To me, it feels like a bone spur on the front of my knee. I’ve been back to my surgeon about this and was told that it’s just a stitch that hasn’t dissolved. It really hurts. Has anyone even heard of this?

I have the burning sensation just about every time I stand up or climb stairs . . . basically any time I put weight on it while moving. Just standing doesn't bother me too bad.
