Still Icing After One Year post-TKR

Knowing the importance of icing my new bionic knee (total knee replacement) while going through physical therapy, I still ice every day and I am one year post TKR. Every time I am done exercising, I put an ice bag on my knee afterwards. Sometimes my knee has swollen up, other times it hasn’t. Either way, I ice it afterwards. I figure that it is better safe than sorry. Plus, I remember the time I didn’t ice after exercising….my tkr knee was painful, very swollen, and stiff. I vowed to not let that happen again. The icing gets tiring…but needs to be done.

I am writing about this since I have received questions from readers who are expressing concern regarding this matter. No one told me (or, the majority of us it seems) that I’d be icing my tkr knee one year after my surgery date. Now we know. It’s not that I’m complaining….just stating a fact.

Hope this helps all who need it. 🙂

    I had a partial knee and while it doesn’t swell after mild workout, it does get stiff adn sore.

    I’ve been whether or not to ice a tight, sore joint that has no swelling.

    One could almost argue to use heat to help relax joint…

    Any thoughts?

    I read that heat brings the blood to the area and stimulates it, “it” being the muscle I think, and that ice takes the blood away, reducing pain and swelling….

    I have only used heat on the thigh area like they did at PT before exercising…..if I put heat directly on my knee it seems to bother it.

  • Just to add that I had a TKR a number of months back and I still get swelling after a lot of swimming. I use an ice pack and some pills to stop the swelling. But there again I suppose I should not complain after a 1 mile swim

    Hi Frank,
    Thanks for visiting my site and leaving your comment. It’s been 4+ years since my tkr and my knee still swells after overdoing it. I also apply ice to reduce swelling. Oh well…Congrats on swimming a mile. 🙂
