I had a full knee replacement 18 months ago. A week ago I started getting extreme pain in the back of my knee almost like a pinched nerve. It comes and goes but when I walk There are times when I have to stop, wait the pain go away, so that I can continue on. When going up or down stairs, each time I step on this leg, pain shoot up through the leg. This can't be good. I have called to get an appointment with the doc. But it's going to be a few days before I can get in.
