I had a tkr of my right knee 4 years

I had a tkr of my right knee 4 years ago. About 2 months ago, I fell forward on a marble floor, severely bruising my left knee and splitting my lip. My right leg seemed fine at the time, with some swelling between my knee and calf but nothing major. Yesterday, I noticed when I bend my right leg forward, there is an indentation in my right knee, in the middle. I have also had some back and hip pain on the right side for a couple of weeks. Could I have broken something in the fall?

I have a large boot on and I am riding a scooter due to a fracture on my foot. It is my right foot .... same side in which I had a TKR a few years ago. Question: my knee is swelling and I have pain in my knee. Will this kneeling on this scooter cause other problems with my TKR??? Please help

I am 76 and must have a knee replacement in my right leg , What type of knee exercises should I be doing to prepare. I have no strength in my legs, and had a hip replacement in the left leg 15 years ago. I also have a dropfoot condition in the left leg and wear a dropfoot brace. Until the last few years I could walk a mile sometimes two, It is very difficult to stand up from a seated position.

55 year old female. Thr/tkr June 2011. Recently fell flight of 7 wooden stairs. Landed on hip then slid down bruising back (on the spine). Saw ortho who x-rayed and found no damage to replacement hip. I also explained I had developed numbness from the knee down the shin and ankle. Doc attributed that to the fall (possible nerve). The same day I was getting on my bike. I started to pedal with the right leg and promptly fell over. I had no sensation in the leg at all. What would cause that level of feeling loss when I have not experienced this during routine living?
