Thu, Jul 30 8:42am · Has anyone had a tight band feeling after total knee replacement? in Joint Replacements

I am 7 months post TKR. The tight band feeling has finally went away for the most part. I still get a “tight” feeling on my knee every now again though. Especially in the morning

I am almost an exact copy of your issues. My ROM is 120 and 0 so I'm good there.The burning and what I call "zingers" from the nerve pain is awful. No more pain meds and I can only take tylenol because of kidney issues. Ice, heat, ecercise, nothing ever helps much. Only twice since the surgery have I had about 10 minutes where there wasn't some kind of pain.

I guess what is the worst for me is that the tightness is there all the time and I still get "skin numbness" off and on throughout the day in different places. I also have a "pocket-like" spot of swelling on the inside of my ankle. Surgeon would barely look at it and my GP said "it's from the surgery". So discouraging that they won't answer my questions. If they would at least try to explain things to me instead of just dismiss me it would help.

I am 7 weeks out from left TKR. I have an awful lot of stiffness just above the knee joint and occasionally "zings" that feel like burning in different parts of my leg at different times. I also get numbness in different parts of my leg at different times. My surgeon says ROM is great " 0 and 115. He just lifted up my leg, bent it back, straightened it out and said "you're doing fine. Did not address any of my concerns etc. Not sure how I'm supposed to know what is normal and what is not.

I have the same issues…numbness, swelling etc. My surgeon just says time will heal it.

Fri, Jan 24 11:22am · Foot neuropathy after total knee replacement in Joint Replacements

I have a lot of numbness/tingling that goes to different areas of my leg after TKR. I still have the "tight band" feeing just above the knee on the thigh. Saw surgeon yesterday. He says time. Not concerned about the swelling or the tight feeling at all. I just doesn't feel right to me. He says 5 weeks is not enough time to be done with all these symptoms. Anyone else deal with these things?
