    TKR 6 weeks post op TKR and still cannot sleep

    How much are you resting and elevating the leg? What kind of activities if any are you doing? Make sure you don't try to much because your knee is still trying to recover from this major surgery. Make sure you are taking the pain meds around the clock. Things will get better

    Concern about the upcoming surgery

    As everyone has already said it is normal to be nervous before surgery. All the fears and worries I had about my recovery were way worse than anything I experienced. As long as you rest, elevate, ice and take your pain meds on time the pain is controllable. I set my alarm clock so I made sure I...

    New knee on the way

    I also live alone and had my two large pups to take care of. Before I had my surgery done I filled my freezer and pantry with microwaveable meal and snacks. I bought paper plates and plastic ware so I did not have to worry about doing dishes. I filled my fridge with drinks and filled up the...

    Sleeping with 'anticipatory anxiety'!

    It is expected to be anxious before surgery. My nurses were pretty good about checking on my pain levels. When I got home I set my alarm clock to go off at regular intervals so I did not miss a round of pain meds. You will do fine. Having a pain free knee is well worth the journey. Remember...

    2 years since TKR and knee not doing so well

    Thanks everyone. I am going to talk to my primary care physician. He is pretty good. He was concerned about me still having problems with my knee but when he looked at my records he saw I was already being seen by ortho. He was concerned about not having x-rays of the entire leg. I think he...

    New here....TKR soon! Help, please...

    Hi I am 8 months out and I do not regret my decision at all. Don't worry about the pain meds you take them because you need them to keep the pain away. As you progress in your recovery you will find you don't need the pills anymore. Everyone gets the jitters about surgery but once you have...

    I did not go back to work for 12 weeks and then was on limited duty hours for another 8 weeks. I was exhausted when I went back to work and my knee would be yelling at me. I had a hard time getting a good nights sleep but finally starting getting back into a good nights sleep about 5 months...

    Hip replacement on 15th Oct

    When I was being examined for a knee replacement one of the things they did was x=rays and MRI's of not only the knee but my hips and back. Tehy wanted to be sure that the pain I was feeling in my knee was being caused by my knee and not pain that was originating in my back or hip. According...
