I had my tkr surg. on June 14th this year. /things seemed to be going on ok for me, but about 3 weeks ago I noticed my knee popping. I seems to be getting worse. Each time I bend my knee then straighten it back out it scrapes. I asked my surgeon about it and he says give it time. It could take a year to fully heal. Guess I should add I am 65 yr old and not in the best health. With the knee joint creaking each time I straighten it out it gets sore! Anyone else experienced this? This is my first time to post and I did want to check other jposts first, but couldn't figure out how. I welcome any questions and constructive criticisms. thanks and God Bless!View Thread
