Knee "catches"
« on: April 28, 2018, 04:19:12 AM »
I had bilateral total knee replacement in Oct 2016. The left knee did well from the start. Had problems with pain in right knee. X-rays during follow-up visits showed no problems, but right knee never felt totally okay. When I'm lying on my back in bed and want to turn to my left, I lift my right leg a bit to swing it over, and that causes pain. Almost feels like the join slips a bit horizontally.

When I've been lying with my leg straight and try to bring my knees up, the right knee seems to "catch" painfully. Ditto for if I've been lying with my knees drawn up and try to straighten my leg. A few months ago, felt pain on the outside of my leg at knee level, and it has now traveled about halfway down my calf. It's worse after walking only a few yards. I also experience pain in that area if I'm lying in bed with my legs straight out and try to turn my foot inward.
