    9 months post total knee replacement

    I am frustrated. I am 9 months post op total knee and still have pain daily. Going up stairs, going down stair, or even trying to do a modified squat. I walk 2 miles a day and nothing is helping. I added ankle weights to see if that helps and all it did was make my. Knee swell. Still have swelling and heat in the knee. Did anyone else experience this?

    yes I had surgery 3 weeks ago and now have been having swelling in my knee, too, Have you tried icing it several times a day and taking ibuprofen which helps to take the swelling down. It is helping me to increase the extension closer to 0. My therapist told me this is why I am having pain in the knee area is because of the swelling. The pills are helping and so is the icing. Don't know if this will help but it won't hurt to try.
