Hello,.[br][br]I had a TKR over 2 months ago. Due to the incision not healing until 3 days ago, I was not ALLOWED to do any bending past 90 degrees or it "split" my incision open again about 3 inches. When I saw the specialist last month, his comment when he saw my knee was "Oh ****". I found out then that when they "put the sides of my incision back together" they missed and it was like overlapped just along the edges of the incision. [br][br]Now my knee feels "locked" when I walk and is swollen and HARD "solid". I would be in pain but for another reason I get Lidocaine infusions every 2 weeks (2000 units) so the pain only really bothers me when I am doing nothing, mind over matter sort of thing.[br][br]I do not see my specialists for another 3-1/2 weeks and I am worried about what they are going to do to be able to fix my knee. He did my other knee last year and no problem, it is working great! I think there is a lot of scar tissue already as behind my knee is hurting now as well and is "tight" back there. I do have some brusing that comes and goes.[br][br]Any suggestions? Thank you
