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.

  1. 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.
