Had my 6 mo check up with the surgeon. Everything good to go. Range of motion about 130. So finally I can walk pain free, play golf etc. so for those with recent TKR, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
I was walking to a baseball game the other day, and I tripped on a piece of exposed concrete. I landed right on my right knee hard. Obviously it hurt for a few minutes but there’s no permanent damage. I guess these new knees are pretty strong.
Thanks for the light at the end of the tunnel. I was flying back from Portugal last week. A woman was standing waiting for the toilet swinging her lag back and forth. I said "Knee replacement?" She said "yep" This seems to be one exercise that helps loosen them up after sitting awhile.
I decided that if I was going to get TKR I would do them both at the same time to go thru the hell only once. It was a little rough getting around for the first 3-4 weeks but not having a "good" leg meant not favoring one or the other. We have been playing golf (with a cart) for the last couple...
Thanks for the feed back. My biggest issue right now is going down stairs. It kind of bites under the knee cap with each step. Other wise I am able to do pretty much what I want. Hiking, golfing, I walk a couple miles a day. But I do get tired easily.
Hi All. I just found this forum. I had bi-lateral TKR November 10, 2022. Some where I was told that after 3 months I would be back to normal...yah, not so much. What is the expectation for pain free knees. I talked to a guy who had TKR and told me it took him a year
