    TKR Any tradesmen working on TKR?

    Hola, and welcome to Bonesmart GR! I had a right knee TKR mid-December and can knee upon a soft surface enough to change me bedding (my bed is against the wall so I have to kneel into it some to get fitted sheet on) or get up from the floor from my floor exercises. But as people hear have said...

    TKR Painful Recovery So Far

    That sounds like a flippant comment. I never ran pre-TKR, and know it is usually not advised as it is 'high impact'. As others have said it is not so much the implant but the skill/ experience of the surgeon. And of course your particular case. My wound area remains very tender and dark four...

    TKR Painful Recovery So Far

    Hola Doccuke! Glad to hear from you. I too have that 'trigger finger' issue with my right hand. It seems to be worse in the winter. I'm a lefty for the most part -- so ignoring it for now. Best to you for swift recovery! keep us posted.

    Knee Infection* Steverup's Recovery Thread

    Hola Steve: So happy to hear you knee is feeling good despite the slight opening. I know this delay has been a drag. Perhaps start some new reading or movie series to help pass the time. We're here for you. And you stay off those roller-skates this time or time-out for you! :happydance:

    TKR My TKR 12/16/19: Easier Than I Thought - THEN AGAIN!

    Update: seeking some means of peddling/ and home exercise I purchased the Ancheer Under the Desk Bike Pedal Exerciser. Great! I use sitting in my locked four-wheeler which now serves as my exercise station for my seated exercises. The Ancheer peddler is sturdy, quiet to get my heart rate going...

    TKR Feel so alone

    I think I will still watch my feet when walking on grass which remains difficult in that grass presents uneven surfaces. Flat straight aways I feel more confident about.

    TKR Things to know before surgery

    A small item to add to the list: plastic square baskets - I had two one about 10 X 5 to keep my vitamins in. Another one a bit bigger to keep my meds, remote controls, phone charger cables, hair stuffs, hand creams, reading glasses etc. at arms reach without having to get out of bed, or keep on...

    Thank you Pam! This unit reviews well. Was it hard to put together or get the box into the house (heavy)?

    Knee Infection* Steverup's Recovery Thread

    Greetings Steve: I'm sorry to hear about your fall. I've been away from the blog for some time - a bit down in coping with the C-19 as it has occurred here in SE Michigan/ Detroit area. I fall so easy and can relate - I nearly feel using the toilet second day at home. The TKR hardware's pretty...

    TKR My TKR 12/16/19: Easier Than I Thought - THEN AGAIN!

    Hello Pam. I hope you and everyone are well and we move thru this month. I've been away continuing to adapt classes I teach to online format (tons of fun and time with that)... :hugzz: ! What brand recumbent bike did you purchase? It's crazy to decide. You're right I can't seem to find a...

    TKR My TKR 12/16/19: Easier Than I Thought - THEN AGAIN!

    Yeah here's yearning for 'normal' on so many levels. We're on tight lock-down here in Michigan...:praying:... Thanks so much for staying in touch. The good news is better eating (more thoughtful) has helped me loose weight! But lack of exercise has brought out new pains and even the return of a...

    TKR My TKR 12/16/19: Easier Than I Thought - THEN AGAIN!

    I've not purchased anything so far but the 'stay home' orders are getting me pretty stiff. I've fallen off doing much of anything. Perhaps a bit depressed, but continuing on. Have lost weight! Eating smarter. Less snacks than I'd normally do...:hugzz:...

    TKR And Now My LTKR Recovery Begins

    I am also surprised your PT has not ended due to COVID-19. I'm working from home now -- I concluded my PT few weeks before things really became restricted. PT at home is doable and needed in my case, so as to not loose the ROM and strength I'd acquired. The Telehealth option sounds great!

    TKR My TKR 12/16/19: Easier Than I Thought - THEN AGAIN!

    Yeah I am only considering it because I can no longer peddle full-out as I was at the gym last month. Sigh... I do some laying on my back 'air' peddling and other stuff I found on youtube to keep busy in the house, yet not pounding my knees. Up and down the steps a few times. Anything so as to...

    TKR My TKR 12/16/19: Easier Than I Thought - THEN AGAIN!

    Hello fellow travelers...:egypdance:... I am about 15 weeks post TKR and working from home now. I'm doing my home exercises the best I can, but not getting my cardio up as I'd like. Working on that. I'm looking at purchasing one of those foot peddle floor units to help me maintain my knee ROM...

    TKR Feel so alone

    Type in 'animated knee replacement' then video search in Google. You will see the surgery or parts of by way drawings/ images, animated. Not as graphic yet you can still see the process.

    TKR Loneshark64’s recovery

    I can make my knee clunk simply shifting my leg in a certain way laying down. It's sorta weird but now I just don't do it and try to tune out when it happens on its own. The knee clunking upon walking seems more spontaneous and varies upon what surface I am on. Not every step. I suppose it's...

    TKR Now post-op, surgery on Feb 25, 2020 USA

    That was my go-to option I did on my own too in my early pain-from-any-movement days! It was one of the few things I could manage. We have to find things that are doable, without too much fan-fare.

    TKR Now post-op, surgery on Feb 25, 2020 USA

    I would not purchase such a pricey gadget! Start/ continue where you are (heel slides, leg off side of bed, angles and leg draping, etc.). Those are options that improve over time as pain levels recede. I recall this silly metal/ plastic ($80+) floor heel-slide device I considered buying. I...
