Half Knee replacement. 3 month post op pain
HI all. New to the community so bear with me. Suffered with sceptic arthritis in right hip at age 11(now 51). Ended up with 2cm difference in leg length. Had the right hip replaced aged 35. Then after years of the left side doing all the work the back and knee pain just got too much on that side . Thought it was only the knee that was the issue but after numerous scans and xrays turns out the left hip was stiff too. So advice was to consider getting left hip replaced before any works on the knee.
Left hip replaced August 2020. All went really well. Then had half knee replaced in August 2021. Again all went well and first 8-9 weeks recovery were really positive. But for past 4 weeks I have constant pain in new parts of knee when weight bearing on leg. Id say this is worse now than in the first 8 weeks of recovery. Its especially bad when I first stand from seated position and weight bear and then take my first 3 or 4 steps. IS THIS NORMAL/EXPECTED ??
Bending is pretty good (approx 115 degrees) and the swelling is still evident but what Id expect. But the pain is concerning .
Anyone who has been thru the knee op , did you experience similar? Really appreciate anyones feedback
