Are you experiencing any tkr swelling? I commonly get asked that question. If you’re like me, you thought the swelling would go down (or away) shortly after your tkr. Well, to answer the question…Mine sure swells up, even nine years after my tkr.

I promised Renee from Croatia (β€œHi Renee!”) I’d write an updated post about this topic, so here it is. Thanks for the request, Renee. πŸ™‚

NOTE: I originally wrote about tkr swelling eight years ago. Where has the time gone? πŸ˜• You can search for this post/article by utilizing the search box found in the upper right hand corner of my home page. Simply type in ‘tkr swelling’ to bring up a series of posts related to this topic. You may find my personal insight particularly helpful.

My tkr swelling is nowhere near what it was during the first couple years after my tkr. Currently, my tkr area swells up when I overdo it. I may not realize I’m overdoing it until I get home and take a look at my leg.

Other times, I can feel the swelling occurring because my knee area loses its flexibility. Or, my jeans tighten around my tkr. That’s a strange feeling. πŸ˜• Go figure…

Swelling occurs more frequently when I walk on uneven surfaces like gravel, unpaved trails, broken sidewalks, or other similar areas. This is because my ankle shifts from side-to-side.

When I speak of tkr swelling, I am also talking about the calf area. This is very common in my situation. There are times when my knee area will not significantly swell, but the front of my tibia sure does. The area known as the shin looks like the mumps, if you can picture that. There is no pain, though.

I hope my experience helps others going through the same thing. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

No matter what your level of tkr swelling, always remember that icing and rest will bring the situation back into check. Hang in there!
