    Home preparation advice

    @flkayaker i found one thing that was indispensable was the commode that has adjustable height. You will find that at the beginning squatting to a normal position to sit is hard in lower toilet seats. The commode can be made high too. Also if you have a shower you could sit in it and have...

    Questions for a PT

    Hi bill Good luck in October There are many standard excercises for knee replacements and knees in general. I would make sure your pt has worked with many tkr patients and understands that a number is not the important thing but how functional you are for what you need to do I am at 115-120...
