    TKR Good advice please!!

    That sounds good to me! I have bow legs since the early surgeries which have always made me walk unbalanced and when l spoke to my recent OS he said there would be some straightening up with the TKR which would be good. Its been amazing hearing from you to be honest I have never spoken to...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Thanks again Sistersinhim. When I had my first knee cap removed I was 18years old back in the day when we didn’t question things so much as we do now. My OS then was very stern and quite scary to be honest that’s why I am looking for a far more approachable one now as wisdom comes with age and I...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi Sistersinhim Thanks for the great reply. My current OS when I mentioned to him about having no knee caps he just said about tendon/ligament work as I knew very little about the shortened tendons due to the lack of knee caps I didn’t ask anymore about it. I will definitely be asking these...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi Sistersinhim Thank you for your recent post. It’s so good to talk to someone who has had TKR without patellar’s as I have not come across that yet maybe someone with one removed but not both. As I was unaware of the possibility that I could have wires after having them removed I have never...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Good evening sistersinhim Thank you for talking to me. My knee caps had to be removed as I said in earlier posts my corrective surgery I had in 1971 was unsuccessful and my knees went from very knocked kneed to bowed as they were over corrected due to poor aftercare. I was then diagnosed with...

    Bilateral TKR Kinda Nervous, Maybe Scared

    Hi Justme2020 I joined this site on Friday just gone and already I feel more positive and chilled about the whole TKR thing. I also do not know if to have both knees done at the same time or one after the other. The thing I do know is it’s the right thing to do as I feel my life is on hold at...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Good morning everyone I forgot to say in my previous posts that I do not have knee caps (patellar’s) on both knees and was wondering if anyone else is going to have or has had TKR’s without knee caps. I had my first one removed when I was 18 and the second one a year later. I lost them both due...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi Helizabug Thank you so much for your post it really does help to get another persons experience of the surgery and how it all went on the day. When I think about it when I had an epidural for my C-section for my second daughter it was classed as a mayor operation and I was wide awake and to...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Good morning Tykey I have just been reading the spinal block link and I remember the epidural I had was a top up so different from the spinal which as you say the spinal is a one off. When I attend the knee evening on the 16th March there will be someone from the anaesthetics department there as...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi Helizabug That sounds nice being already sleeping from the sedation I had epidural for my children’s births so I guess the spinal is similar? Did the spinal work for you with pain relief after the surgery? It defiantly is a project and having all new people on board to chat to like yourself...
