    Just caught up on your thread; you appear to be doing quite well! Had to chuckle at the comments on text speak! When I do text I have to make sure I have my glasses on....I've sent some crazy texts and to the wrong folks.....oops!!!! ;0)... As far as getting back active on a regular basis it...

    TKR So Far So Good

    The right hip injection (with fluoroscopy) went well; no issues and quickly done; didn't do a whole lot today; will see how it goes tomorrow with a walk. If torn labrum is involved my surgeon doesn't advocate having it scoped....due to (gasp!!!)....my age....:heehee:

    TKR Keith’s Recovery<

    Recovery from TKR is more like a marathon than a sprint; you've gotten a lot of good advice from the folks here; a fantastic support group. Be patient and don't over do; TKR is a huge deal!!!

    TKR So Far So Good

    X-rays from last Thursday revealed arthritis in the hip; symptoms may point to a torn labrum that's causing the catching/snapping/pain. Taking it easy a couple of weeks from long walking sessions; some home pt exercises with bands and some anti inflammatory meds. Will follow up with ortho just...

    TKR So Far So Good

    Well.....go figure! Need to have my right hip checked out this coming Thursday. For the past few months I've been experiencing sharp pains with snapping; painful enough to stop me in my tracks; happens on level surfaces and inclines as well; primarily when walking but sometimes just turning...

    TKR So Far So Good

    Just "celebrated" my 5th anniversary for my RTKR! The right one has not given me any issues. My left one has been "quiet" lately so I'm glad at this point I didn't go forward with the scope mentioned in my posts earlier this year. The left is a bit tender today but I've been off and on ladders...

    TKR Second knee

    Quick turnaround to return to work in 4 weeks; good that you know the "drill" since you've had a TKR...fortunate my 2nd one was easier than the first; may be that'll be the same for you. Best do luck!

    TKR Tommys comparison to ACL surgery

    Congrats on your progress! I had an acl repair in 2001; then had a TKR on that same knee in 2013; like others may have said, Tkr takes more to recover from... At least it did for me.

    TKR So Far So Good

    After additional discussion with the surgeon's staff and covering the questions I had, decided to just sit tight and not do a scope; unless and if until the pain becomes much more frequent than its been, I determined best to leave well enough alone for now. The knee has been just fine the past...
