    @ChillTime! Thanks for the update. All in all - that second surgeon's exam feels quite encouraging. At least he explained why your pain is lasting longer. It also must be reassuring he almost laughed at 8 months and you (us) thinking we should be recovered. I find that report hopeful also...

    Hi @ChillTime . I thought I'd check back in on your thread to see how you are doing. I can hear your frustration. I don't know if I'm much help however you are still my source of inspiration since you are a few weeks ahead. I'm still pretty much where you are at 6+ months and am taking the...

    @ChillTime ...thanks for the update. I do care, strangers we are not...sisters in recovery...or shall I say slow recovery. Well, sounds like the doctors appointment at least let you know your gait and alignment is good. I know folks on Bonesmart says the knee discomfort after "overdoing" it is...

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    Well @ChillTime ...were you a foreboder of what was to come last night and today. I just can't get it in my head what "slowing" down is because what I do in a day now is SOOO much less than what I use to do on a normal day. Just the dull bone ache at the shin and lower knee cap. ARRGGGGHHH. I...

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    Hello @ChillTime . Yes, the pulled ligament set me back for sure and also aggressive PT did not help. My PT experience was not so great and I have had fantastic PT in my past. As for the bone pain, I also have read that the bone pain/shin is not uncommon and if there is no medical problem can...

    @ChillTime I do not know how much sage advice I can give you but I really identify with your experience and concern....and your frustration. I am 23 weeks and I've been writing about the same type situation on my thread, too. So what I can offer is empathy and let you know I am taking the...

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    Thank you @mtnplayva! I went back and read your story and you did have a rough go there! That means a lot you have taken the time to reassure me and share your own experience. I know that if you can get through a rough patch like you had, I can also. I've been slowing down since my posting...

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    Thank you @benne68 ....again. I think you guys have to tell me the same thing every month or so. :). You are right, I do get worried. It seems the longer I am into recovery, the more I feel alone because everyone else is moving on with their lives and I'm still a bit of a snail. Not that I...

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    Update and question...so I am at 5 months+ and am slowly getting better at a snail's pace. I still get pain at that lower knee cap area if I do too much walking at a an extended time. Now I'm not talking miles...I am talking a botanical garden walk of about 25 to 30 minutes and at a moderately...

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    Thank you, @sistersinhim. Apparently you are in tune with my surgeon's assistant. Because I thought it better to check out the knee cap pain for peace of mind, he suggested the same. He took X-rays today. When I mentioned the treadmill, he said he would advice a stationary bike over a...

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    I have another question, @mtnplayva ...if you don't mind. Did you continue a stationary cycle as you recovered from the patella tendon strain? I'm just wondering what I continue to do while I try to rest this knee a bit. Thank you!

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    Oh thank you, @mtnplayva ! You know I was back tracking my last few days in my mind and realized it might be the steps! You just confirmed it for me. I remember I've been adding going down the steps a bit the last few days and feeling a stress under the knee cap and I did that this morning...

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    Question my friends. So I got the treadmill and I just did 10 minutes at a slow speed yesterday but today my knee cap (at the bottom) is tender and a bit painful when walking. I imagine that even 10 minutes was too much???? I've had the tenderness/pain before when I bend my knee too much or...

    TKR Pulled Ligament in Week 6 recovery

    Just an update to my wonderful supportive friends here. It is week 16 for me and I'm still a bit impatient but am still sticking to my common sense, practicing patience. Where I live it is hot as hades and walking outside even early morning is not doable. I have ordered an inexpensive...
