I know we just had a discussion on total knee replacment, but I hope someone can help me with some answers.
I had my knee done 3 months and 1 week ago, I have a lot of pain in the tendons and ligaments surrounding the knee no pain in the joint anymore. I exercise one time a day lots of bending and stretching I ride the bike in the moring 20 min and eveing 20 min the pain is a lot less after exercising. My doctor says the pain is normal. How long will it last? Thanks for any help you have to offer

DJ, You and I are at about the same point post surgery. I am kind of like you. The most pain I have is in the back of my knee where I still have some swelling. What are you taking for pain? I discovered a knee replacement forum that I have learned more about what to expect in my rehab in the past 2 weeks than I had in the previous year heading into surgery and the first 2 months post surgery.

Take a look in there and you will get a lot of useful information. One thing that I have learned is that all our recoveries are different and there is no "normal" to base your recovery on.

Good luck,

MurryW : thanks I looked up the site you gave me and it was very helpful. I only take advil for the pain maybe 1 to 2 times a day. When I did my knee I looked up all the things about the surgery so I knew what they were going to do to my knee, I should have looked more at the rehab and also what I could have done before to make it easier to get back.
Thanks for the help,

DJ..I had a total knee replacement almost 3 years ago. It took well over a year to get really strong. Of course the knee feels wierd when I kneel on it. No feeling. Give it lots of time. You can do alot with the knee. I always told my surgeon that I was afraid to hurt it, and he said "YOUR NOT GOING TO HURT THE KNEE ASSEMBLY." He said not to do alot of running. Good luck with it.
