I am 43 yr old female and I am 5 months postop from bilateral TKR. Just wondering if anyone who had this done is still in excessive pain? The pain in my left knee is still not tolerable and I have lost 20 deg ROM. The pain is in the inside of knee and shoots into my thigh still have constant feeling of the scar tissue pulling. My right knee is almost pain free great ROM but I developed bursitis on the knee cap. I had such high hopes for this to work I understand I have many more months to recover but does this pain go away? I am told it's from scar tissue, I still do not walk right I wobble drag my leg to avoid walking in pain. I also had 2 manipulation's after surger to try to break up the scar tissue and get better ROM. any input would be appreciated Thanks, TammyView Thread
