    Knee replacement surgery on February 11, 2014. Unable to do rehab just yet because of huge blisters around incision site. Each Doctor I talk to seem to have a different explanation as to why the blisters have appeared. Is anyting familiar with this problem? I am able to use CPM three time a day.

    Hi firsttimer72,

    While I cannot provide medical advice or diagnosis on this board and do not have experience with knee replacement, I did find this piece from the New England Muscoloskeletal Institute that discusses blisters near the incision site. It says that the best thing to do is to just ignore the blisters and allow them to heal on their own.

    Best wishes,
    Atti
