I am a 57 year old male. I had TKR surgery about 2 years ago. My knee will wake me up from a deep sleep, in terrible pain. I have to find ways to move it around or even hang it off the bed to get relief. I can walk good but the bending of the knee is not that good. I still have a lot oof stiffness and tightness in it. Any help would be greatful.

After I had my hips and knee replaced, the most comfortable way to sleep is on my side with a pillow between my legs. This takes the pressure off of the joint. It really works. To this day, I still sleep that way, and it's been 9 years for one THR, 8-1/2 years for my TKR, and a little over a year for my latest THR. My friends tell me I'm a bionic woman! I don't know about that, but I sleep quite comfortably at night. Try it. I'm sure it will work for you. If not, see your Dr.
