    TKR Second time lucky for LTKR

    Shaking it? I have hit people with it and tripped up one guy who walked into me while he was watching tv on his iPhone. I am a victim @Spex10 of impatience and overconfidence!

    Well, yesterday was a bit of an event. Problems with the train so running 45 minutes late into work. I dislike being late so was trying to rush. Went to step up a kerb and my TKR leg didn't extend as I thought, only got my toes and over I went. Luckily I grabbed some railings with my left hand...

    You are getting there Chrissi, as Susie said slow progress is still progress, think back to something you are doing today that you were doing a month ago and compare them. Its difficult to see anything day to day.

    TKR Here I go again!

    The opioids were my main concern to be honest. I think some people are in agony though and options are limited, you have to take what you need to get through As long as you have in your mind what you are taking, what quantity and frequency and for how long you should be ok. Reduce to the...

    One issue I didn't expect. I have been back in long trousers this week and with my left knee being swollen its been rubbing the skin off on the outside of my knee Back in work in shorts today and probably will be until the swelling reduces sufficiently. Getting some very uncomplimentary...

    My recovery is worrying, you know that feeling where things are going too well? Everything seems to have accelerated so fast I am concerned that something hasn't had the time it needs or deserves to heal properly
