Nov 13, 2019 · Scar tissue after knee replacement in Joint Replacements

I know exactly how you feel. I am 12 weeks out from left TKR. Doing fairly good but still having issues. Ended up with horiffic nerve pain n it's some better with gabapentin. Not sure I could go thru this again. Right knee is not bone on bone yet, thank God. I need a left shoulder replacement and a right shoulder replacement revision. Not sure I can go thru anymore surgeries. Not sure emotionally I'm up for it. Maybe 20 yrs ago but not at 66. God bless us all.

Oct 23, 2019 · First Post - 16 weeks post surgery in Joint Replacements

I am 8 weeks post op TKR. my Dr told me I will always have a small spot of numbness on outside kneecap. There is a nerve that has to b cut in order to place replacement. I too have suffered from burning and a feeling of a band around my knee. I tell PT it feels like I have a softball in there! Dr put me on Gabapentin last Tues n hoping to get some relief from the burning. Also use lidocaine 4% patches or roll on. I'm so happy I found Mayo Connect. Not sure how I did but it's a God send. Glad to know my symptoms are not just me.
