    Thank you @sistersinhim. My plan is to ice and elevate for the rest of the day and hope tomorrow is better. Yes I’ve already arranged for a wheelchair!

    Bilateral TKR CrossFit’s new knees

    This morning I was experiencing what I would describe as nerve pain on the lateral side of my right knee when I was going down stairs. Stupidly, I pushed through it. A couple of hours later, my knee became very hot, swollen and tight, to the point that i couldn’t put ANY pressure on my right...

    Bilateral TKR CrossFit’s new knees

    Thanks for the support and info @Celle and @pumpkin! I’ve read those articles over and over, I guess I just needed more reassurance that aggressive PT is bad. I’ll let you know how the next session goes.

    Bilateral TKR Will I be able to care for my dog after surgery?

    I was scheduled for BTKR, but Kaiser staff are going on strike, so now I have to do one knee at a time. I was going to board my dog for a few days when I was having both knees done, but now that I’m only doing one knee, do you think it’s still necessary? I will have help at home for a week or...

    TKR Anyone going through Kaiser for TKR?

    Hi Nelly, sorry for the delayed response. My Kaiser surgeon is using cement and he said I’d have a spinal block, not general anesthesia.

    2019 November Nimbles - Are you having knee surgery in November?

    BTKR scheduled for 11/14. Getting really nervous and scared! I know I’m on the younger side, but arthritis has really kept me from engaging in activities I love.
