hi,

thank-you for providing the brief history of you.

A thorough musculoskeletal assessment is advised

As post TKR you are having pain this is common and it takes some time for the muscle to regain the flexibility. once the flexibility is attained the knee regains the mobility and the pain subsides

Also, the Strengthening of the muscles around the knee is needed to avoid any muscle pressure pain.

In my clinical practice we do find patients post TKR complains of pain. We look forward for a complete clinical assessment and recommend physical therapy. They respond well.
