Living With Neuropathy & a TKR

Hi everyone! I have been receiving numerous inquiries regarding sciatica, nerve pain, and other pains associated with a tkr or total knee replacment. The timing is ideal since I have been experiencing high levels of neuropathy pain. Here’s the scoop that I trust will provide further insight…

As I have written about in other posts that prior to my tkr, bone spurs were digging into my nerves. They were severing my nerves. (The nerves are located alongside the lateral portion of my knee.)

Prior to my tkr, I had to readjust my entire body in order to compensate for this extreme pain.

What is interesting is that almost 10 years post-tkr, this neuropathy pain can be excruciating at times. I know that my situation could be much worse, but believe it
is worthy of sharing with you.

The level of discomfort is simply noticeable and potentially hindering. I do not know when it will happen. It is unpredictable.

There are times when the neuropathy leads to my entire tkr leg tingling. Sometimes there is pain, other times there is not. It is the strangest feeling.

Right now, I am sitting at a computer using proper ergonomics, and I feel my lower leg tingling all the way down to the ends of my toes. I straighten my leg and the tingling diminishes. Other times I straighten my leg and the tingling continues.

I always like to pay particular attention to activities happening when the pain and/or tingling occur. I do notice that the neuropathy pain occurs when lifting any amount of weight. Even carrying some grocery bags does this.

It sometimes happens when I am swimming. It can happen when standing for more than 5-10 minutes. These are just some situations that pop into my mind as I am writing this article.

How do I ease the pain? I try my best to find stress-reducing body positions. Some work one time and not another. I lightly massage the area. This provides temporary relief, usually.

There are several yoga stretches that help, like the pyramid pose. Touching toes, downward-facing dog, and camel pose all provide relief, also.

And: Elevating my leg works some times, not all the time. In short, my remedies provide unpredictable results. I take aspirin, but dread popping pills for a number of reasons.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing. Find interesting? Kindly share with others who may benefit. Thank you!

    Imam scheduled for left TKR, in 40 hours. Motivating factor was hoping left foot pain ( the worst of my 2 neuropathic feet) would improve. I’m scared after reading that I will be much worse. I cannot find a single patient whose neuropathy and foot pain improved… And only got worse. Now I’m freaking out! Is it possible for it to get better after TKR? I’m ready to cancel my surgery!!!! Thanks.
