I had new cushions put in both knees in September and made great progress. For the last 3 weeks I have had stiffness, tightness and aching in both knees mostly above the knee cap. My sjogrens and fibro symptoms have been under control and my question is, "has the sjogrens and fibro settled in those areas causing problems that are not typically associated with the recovery from surgery?" I had one 2 week period of this same type of pain about one month after surgery which I reported to my surgeon. He said everything looked really good and to keep pushing myself in exercising the knees. Has anyone had experience with surgery and an autoimmune disorder? Suggestions for relief?
