    TKR Recovery diary

    Well, I had the genicular nerve block yesterday, and I was pain free for 4 hours!!:yes!: First time I’ve been able to walk “normal” in 6 months !

    I want to thank everyone for your kind information. This has been such a long road (over 10 years) and I had gotten to the point to have the surgery as I could not stand one more day of incredible pain!Still wonder if I’ve made a mistake, but there were no other options left. As for nerve...

    Also, I am having the same nerve pinching sensation at the medial knee still! I thought the surgery would get rid of this ! So I’m actually almost in worse shape than when I went in. This isn’t supposed to be this way:(
