    TKR Jenipops Knee #2: No Rhyme Or Reason

    I was icing 20 minutes every 2 hours. My PA said to do it 20 minutes every 20 minutes. I’m going to try longer periods of time as suggested to you. Thanks for your information.

    TKR Jenipops Knee #2: No Rhyme Or Reason

    Thanks for all the feedback. I don’t remember all this tightness and swelling from my ltkr. However, it was at 5 weeks I got a DVT and spent a week in the hospital. I do have a lot of soreness in my #1 knee as well. It’s definitely getting a workout! Tonight I have pain down the inside of...

    TKR Jenipops Knee #2: No Rhyme Or Reason

    Wondering what do about swelling. It’s been 3 days of extreme swelling of my entire surgery leg. So much so it is hard to walk, aches, and very warm. I’ve elevated, iced every 2 hours, walked and done some simple exercises. I’m so frustrated! It started after a PT session where my ROM went...

    TKR Jenipops Knee #2: No Rhyme Or Reason

    Thank you for sharing! It’s such a morale boost when someone can relate to what we’re going through. After taking the weekend “off” and just resting, elevating and icing, I feel pretty good today. Had PT this morning and got to full rotation on the bike! My ROM is at 119 as well. I’m so...

    Thank you all for your support and words of wisdom. You have helped more than I can express. I’ve decided to take today “off” and rest, ice and elevate. I should be ready for PT in the morning!

    TKR Jenipops Knee #2: No Rhyme Or Reason

    My daughter keeps calling me a “drama queen”. I can’t even begin to describe how it makes me feel. No one seems to understand how I can be great one day and miserable the next. I wish there were an island I could escape to with only TKR patients and caretakers who could empathize. I’d gladly...

    TKR Jenipops Knee #2: No Rhyme Or Reason

    Great! Swollen. Great! Swollen. Swollen. Good. Bad. This is my life at 3.5 weeks. Not a lot of fun, plenty of frustration. Surgeon, PT staff, family, all are amazed at how well I’m doing, ugh! 115/0, pretty good I guess, but I can’t figure out what I’m doing right some days and wrong...

    TKR Jenipops Knee #1: Family and friends don't get it.

    I actually got my sister to watch a video (I won’t watch it). She was shocked and even got a bit lightheaded. Whether it makes a difference remains to be seen. I appreciate her watching it though.

    TKR Jenipops Knee #1: Family and friends don't get it.

    Thank you so much for your time and response. I’ve never participated is this type of forum, but I believe it will help with the recovery process immensely. You’ve brought a ray of sunshine on a relatively gloomy day! ColleenAda, thanks for your advice! I lived in Oceanside for 6 years. I...

    TKR Jenipops Knee #1: Family and friends don't get it.

    Hello! I am 2.5 weeks out of LTKR. I’m doing very well according to doc. My problem is, my family doesn’t seem to understand that his statement doesn’t mean I’m all healed and ready to face the world. Im staying with my sister and it seems she’s ready for me to go home where I have 2 flights...
