Does Your TKR Involve Nerve Damage?

Hi everyone…It’s been 6.75 years since my tkr and I’ve received a number of inquiries about how my knee is doing and what others can expect.

As I’ve mentioned before, everyone recuperates at their own pace. My tkr knee still looks a little “fatter” than my other knee. Depending upon the level of my physical activity, sometimes it just swells up more than usual. It’s usually not painful.

What is painful, however, is the extensive nerve damage left behind from my bone spurs. Bone spurs developed on each side of my knee to the point where they were digging into my nerves. I was told the tkr would not correct the nerve damage, but would make the knee pain go away. I was fine with that.

This pain is exacerbated by swimming, but I don’t care. I’d rather have pain than no swimming.
In addition to the swimming times, this nerve pain can happen anywhere, any time. There does not seem to be any rhyme nor reason. The pain always runs from my lower spine down the side of my tkr leg.

Some times the pain goes along with a tingling sensation that goes from my knee down to my ankle. It’s a strange feeling. The tingling shows up sporadically and unexpectedly.

The pain and tingling will go away when my leg is elevated and resting. Ice helps and so does aspirin. Gentle side bends and toe touches also help alleviate some of the pain. Dealing with this pain is no big deal to me. It’s 100-percent better than the complete knee pain I had prior to my tkr.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

    It’s funny (not really) but I have this similar feeling in my non-surgery leg after TKR. Same tingling and strang feeling, slight twinges of pain. Nothing excruciating, annoying is more the word. Have had MRI and Ultra-sound and they can find nothing wrong. Neurologist says it could be from my position on the operating table since it occurred after surgery. Who know? But I’m 4mo post op and it seems to be getting better. The neurologist says it can take up to a year or more for nerves to cooperate…we’ll see.

  • Hi Joy,
    Thanks for stopping by again and leaving your tkr nerve comment. Good luck with your nerve situation. Hopefully, in your case, it will take no longer than a year. Good luck and keep in touch!
