Question TKR 7 weeks post op

I had TKR 7 weeks ago and now I'm getting frustrated because I'm not feeling well enough to do much of anything yet. I finished last Thursday with 5 weeks of PT 3 times a week and see doctor tomorrow. My knee swells all the time. Feels better after home exercises but then at night it aches and the muscles burn, haven't had a really good nights sleep in 7 weeks. I ice knee all of the time, it always feels warm almost like a fever in knee. Is this all normal? How long will all of this go on? When will it start feeling better?

Snuffy49 - sounds like we had our TKR about the same time. How are things going now?

When I just read your 7 week report it kind of reminded me of where I was a 7 weeks. I'm at 10 weeks now and everything is getting quite a bit better every day. One thing I've found is that everyone is different when it comes to healing the soft tissues cause by having your knee ripped open.

Take care, hope all is well.
