TKR Dead Weight: Is This You?

Hi everyone! I have received quite a few comments lately about the worries of having a very stiff tkr leg for a time after the surgery. This is no news to us who found out the hard way that this is a common event. Here’s some more insight…

My entire leg was a complete dead weight. None of my muscles worked. My tkr knee needed gentle stretching exercises to increase the bend along the front part of my new knee. I needed to work on stretching out my hamstrings, along the backside of my knee, to straighten my leg. My leg would not lay flat on any surface.

Even though I was up and walking on a walker the day after my tkr, my muscles were still not developed enough to support my body weight. I remember sitting in a chair and not being able to slide my foot at all. I am certain everyone goes through this. This is when those assisted exercises come into play.

It has been eight years since my tkr and my leg still gets stiff and painful after prolonged periods of walking or standing. I just rest, elevate, and ice. It’s no big deal.

Hope it helps others going through the same thing. Remember, you are not alone in this endeavor. Take a look around this site for more insight from myself and readers.

  • Hi, I just read your blog about dead weight after tkr. I’m so glad I’m not alone. I need advice on how to handle this. This has been about 7 years for me with the same problem. Sometimes my leg feels completely dead! Massage helps but I don’t have the funds to constantly get them. Can you offer me any other advise.
    Thank you so much

  • Hi Sandi,
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving your tkr comment. I have stated throughout my site, I do not offer advice. I, and my readers, only provide insight into personal experiences.
    The post you are commenting on is what I was experiencing immediately after my tkr surgery.
    I recommend contacting your medical care professional for expert advice regarding your concern.
    Best of luck and keep in touch..
