    TKR 9 Months Post TKR Pain

    I am actually just about 23 months post op R TKR and I was searching for any advice on occasional pain and stiffness STILL even at almost 2 years! But I clearly remember at 9 months I was bewildered at how much it still hurt going up the stairs. Not as bad going down but putting full weight on...

    MUA DebP's recovery thread<^

    :wave:Hi dear @DebP ! I just read your thread starter. Oh man it hurts at 2 weeks :bawl:and I can relate. Except that it sounds like you had a partial on the L AND a TKR on the R? Is that correct? If so you are pretty much a bilateral TKR at this moment. My BF also a nurse had her single R...

    TKR 1 month post op. Weaning off pain medications?^

    4 Months and Life is OK!!! A smart BoneSmart’er said somewhere on some post that we should all look back once a month and celebrate what’s better? What’s easier? I had a hard time finding those betters and easiers during the first 2 months but now I’m seeing it!! What’s better? My energy level...

    MUA Poor Flexion - Does age matter?<

    @KDIMATT Way to go!!! I’ve been thinking about you!! I’m so happy to hear your knee went round the bike!! I do hope now that you can ride a stationary bike (a sweet stationary bike at that) you can see the normal days ahead when you don’t give a hoot about your flexion/extension anymore. My...

    TKR 1 month post op. Weaning off pain medications?^

    My 3 month update! I am back to work full time and pleasantly surprised to report no problems with the long hours or the dreaded stairs. Oh I’m taking my time going up and down of course! Co-workers have been great allowing me to sit during rounds and occasionally will run ahead in emergencies...

    TKR Claire's recovery journey<

    Hi:wave:@Clairebear! I am just 12 wks and I also have tenderness on front of my knee that turns into screams when it’s overused. I also found that when I was in the pool I easily over stretched my knee (felt nice at the time) but it bothered me a few hours later. I also have an annoying...

    TKR Increase of stiffness and back of knee pain<

    @roboknee :wave:HI!! Oh my! when I read your post I feel like I’m reading my own!!!! Except I truly don’t care anymore about my flexion. I think if we can walk that’s all that matters.
