Re: TKR & thigh pain
The therapist is correct, the knee has to be able to bend completely and straighten completely otherwise the tkr would not be much help. The hip also has to be in alignment as all of the leg parts work off of each other. Oxycodone is a pretty strong pain med, the docs are not likely to put her on anything stronger this long after surgery. Is she taking her meds right before PT, that way she should be able to handle the pain of PT. Has she talked to her PT about the pain?
