Great range of motion but knee feels worse than ever after 10 months
An_254222 posted:
I had TKR 1/8/13 . Developed staph infection and had second surgery 1/27/13 (debridement.). P/T for 8 months. My range of motion is excellent but nothing seems to help this feeling that I have a tight vise around my knee that has begun to travel some of the time down the left side of calf.

Has anyone had this situation?I really preferred having the original pain which I could take something for.
