    TKR I'm Back, with another new knee.

    Hi Ruth, my ankle problem involves the tibial tendon which runs on the inside from under the foot (I think) around the back side of the ankle then up the inside of the leg. My therapist knew just how to rub it and going crossways over it. Ice will help of course. I am not having any problems...

    TKR Martha's Journey One Day At A Time, Phase Two

    Thanks Martha, I splurged on this dress because my husband and I kind of ran away to Reno and got married back in 1975. No, I wasn't pregnant, just some religion problems with the parents. So we said the heck with everyone and took off. I had a $26 dress from the mall as my wedding dress. So...

    TKR I'm Back, with another new knee.

    Busy day for me today. First went to my last PT. I thought I was at 12 weeks, but only at 11. Anyway, the therapist went over some different stretches that I can continue to do. He measured one more time without pushing it was 102. But he also measured the knee for swelling and it had...

    TKR Martha's Journey One Day At A Time, Phase Two

    Oh yes Martha, so worth going through it. My hands are so much better. Had carpel tunnel fixed at the same time on each hand. My grip is great. For really tough things to open, I still have to go to my husband. But the pain is gone and that is the big thing. For me, six weeks in a cast...

    TKR Martha's Journey One Day At A Time, Phase Two

    Hi Martha, I had to hunt down your thread when I happened to read your response in someone else's thread and I didn't want to high jack it. You mentioned that you have bone on bone in your thumbs. I did too. I would drop things all the time. Hands hurt all the time. Last year I went through...

    TKR 5 weeks post op

    I have been on Tramadol for years. Because every joint in my body is affected by a rare form of arthritis. As I keep getting joints fixed, I suppose I should try and ween myself off of them. I take four a day.

    TKR 5 weeks post op

    Hi Nancyjo, I am at 10 weeks with my latest knee replacement. I don't watch the Today show, but I googled it and saw what he was doing at two weeks and I thought what the heck. How can he do that. It is so hard not to compare, but we really shouldn't. Our knees are our own and we have to do...

    TKR I'm Back, with another new knee.

    Woke up this morning and was a little stiffer feeling. Figured it was from the pt yesterday. Had to go and vote then I had an eye appointment. So took care of those things and thought I should come home and ice, but instead I went to the pool. Now that felt good. What was nice is that I ran...

    TKR I'm Back, with another new knee.

    Just got back from PT and I asked my therapist if he ever heard of Bonesmart. I explained to him what it is all about. He agreed with the concept about not pushing to pain. He is constantly asking me if it hurts, or if it is ok when he is working on me. I told him I am swimming now and he...

    @birdinger that is the place I went for my left knee and I had the red headed guy for my therapist. Did not like him because after 4 to 5 weeks, he said he was done with me and I needed a manipulation. I told him no and went someplace else. My brother had him too when he had both knees done...

    TKR I'm Back, with another new knee.

    @birdinger I just saw that. It is ok, I was just wondering if I knew you, but you answered it by telling me where you live. I thought maybe you grew up in the town where you had the surgery. We are close. We will have to keep an eye on each other and maybe meet some day.

    TKR 8 weeks post op<

    @KatD123 Hi, I came in here late too, not from not knowing it was here, as I was here 4 years ago. I thought I could cope with everything this time and found I needed to be able to talk to people in the same boat again and people that understand what is going on. I will be at 10 weeks...

    @birdinger I tried to write to you too and it said that I was unable write to you. Not sure what that is about.

    TKR The Long and Winding Road...To Recovery

    Ruth, it is so funny that we had surgery at the same hospital a month apart. When I first started reading your posts and saw you were from WI and you said you live across from a river and there is a nice walking path, I wondered if it was the same town I grew up in. I am now out in the country...

    @birdinger OMG, REALLY, I am just three miles from that hospital, and yes, had mine done there too. Love the new hospital. Do you live in SP, or are you from out of town? Lots of people come from a distance just to have surgery there.
