    TKR Cycle again?

    @Orange Blossom All kinds of weird things happen after TKRs. I put it down to nerves having to recover. Pain also comes and goes. I was told not to try to reduce pain relief at night until I was fine in the day, as a lot of healing takes place during sleep. If you can't sleep at night...

    TKR Cycle again?

    @Orange Blossom You are worrying about this far too soon. Once your leg is well healed and you can walk well, then start on a static bike. Put the seat as high as possible, then first try to pedal backwards. Once you can do that then try forwards. Don't despair if it takes a while to manage...

    TKR Nana Moon's Shiny New Second Knee

    Hi Ann, It's good to hear from you again. Glad to hear your doing well, but I'm concerned that you're still having to attend a pain clinic. Why is that, do you have a different problem. I'm also in some pain, but none seems to be from the knees. After taking Alendronic Acid tablets, my...

    TKR Foot and toe numbness

    @GloomPreac Hi, my dates are underneath my signature, but in case you can't see them, that leg will be four years in November. I did have complications and had it immobiled for almost two weeks, which set me back. I suppose it was after the first 4/5 months, but then I had problems when my...

    TKR Foot and toe numbness

    @GloomPreac Don't worry about the numbness too much. Mine has all but gone away. The only time I notice it is getting ready for bed when at the end of a busy day some of my leg muscles have tightened and become painful. I then give my muscles a deep massage and this makes my foot a bit...

    How soon after TKR surgery can you go swimming?

    @SusieShoes The breast stroke is the only face down stroke that I know, and swimming lessons for adults are like hen's teeth round here.

    How soon after TKR surgery can you go swimming?

    Does anyone know if and when it is ok to do breast stroke after two TKRs?. I have only swim breast stroke and back stroke, but have been told to do the crawl. Any advice welcome.

    TKR Can lost ROM be regained

    @Roy Gardiner Thanks for the reply. This is what I have been doing, 2mins up to three x daily. Perhaps it is now time to lower the seat again, although it is already lower than my road bike. However it is not going to be level surfaces when I go out as we live in a very hilly place, at the...

    Bilateral TKR Recovery Diary

    @Roy Gardiner I have just read your 2 and 3 year updates with some envy. I still have a lot of pain almost every step from tight ligaments and occasionally muscles which suddenly tighten. You motivated me so much during the early days, and I was convinced I would be like you and make a...

    How soon after TKR surgery can you go swimming?

    How soon has anyone done the breast stroke, and can it do any harm? I am not good at the crawl, although I can do the backstroke.

    TKR Post op RTKR

    Liam, it to me a long time to get right round on my bike. I bought a very cheap static bike from a charity shop, cheap because the tension was broken, but just what I wanted. Put the seat at the very highest setting. Start by going backwards and forwards for 2 minutes or so three times a day...

    TKR Can lost ROM be regained

    @Josephine Thank you for all your advice. I haven't followed up the second opinion route, as my knees themselves cause me no trouble, and everyone who examines them says how good they are. I have however followed up your recommendation of a good Chiropractor. I have found a wonderful one in...

    TKR Slainte's Big Adventure

    What a wonderful report, and how I envy your lack of pain. My knees are pretty much perfect, but oh the muscle problems I am having. On my Doctor's advice, I started on Alendronic Acid a year ago, as a bone scan showed I had just tipped over the line into osteoporosis. I was very reluctant as...

    TKR Nana Moon's Shiny New Second Knee

    Lovely to hear from you Ann but so sorry to hear about your problems. We had our knees done at about the same times. I am having problems that no one knows the causes of, pains on the outsides of both knees where the IT band goes in and out of the knee, and some tightness inside the knee and...

    Christine, I had a lot of back pain recently I found an Osteopath put it right very easily, it was my sacroiliac joint I had put out. Either might be able to help you.
