Decreased Nerve Damage & A TKR

For the first 13 months after my total knee replacement, I had severe nerve pain on the outer portion of my tkr leg. I wrote about this previously and found out that it seems to be a pretty common occurrence after undergoing this surgery.

Well, something surprising has happened within the last month. This nerve pain is 95% gone. I am not woke up at night from this sharp pain. I can move my leg in different ranges without any pain. And, I do not have to wait a bit upon standing in order to have my nerve ‘position’ itself properly. This is interesting to me.

I would like to attribute it to the fact that I exercise diligently. When riding my upright bicycle, I notice my nerve is also getting a workout. I can feel it move along side my tkr joint. It does not hurt, but seems to be stretching out. That is how it feels to me, anyways.

If I am not riding my upright bike, I using walking as my exercise. Not only does this help my all around health, but my tkr leg loves it. My nerve is not painful at all while I do this. It used to be.

Even though I may have written about how excited I was about not having this severe nerve damage pain anymore….I’m doing it again since it is such a remarkable improvement.

I am sure I still have nerve damage (I don’t think it ever heals itself…does it?) but perhaps the holistic treatment of exercise and time has diminished it profoundly.

I don’t have a definitive answer other than whatever it is….I hope it continues!

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

  • Woohoo! Good news is always nice to hear!

    Now I have even more to look forward to, although I don’t have the problem you did, I still have the occasional sharp, shooting pain……it’s getting less frequent as I progress.

    I really do think that my going back to work and being forced to stand and walk so much has helped me to progress a little more than if I had not been working, or had a desk job.

    You have the same name, but your two email addresses are different. So, she must have liked your comment so much she copied and pasted it into the Reply box, then added her comment.
