    TKR 6 months still stiff

    As far as I can see, I have no swelling. The Doc just thought it looked perfect at 13 months. Yea, I'm afraid that may be the case...long term minor pain. Sometimes I think it's a nerve issue since I hear that can take up to 3 years to heal. For awhile , ocassionally, I felt sensations all up...

    TKR 6 months still stiff

    I think a part of me doesn't want to check this all out. The idea of additional surgery makes me quiver ! My trust level is very low.

    TKR TKR Mid May - Charlotte's recovery journey

    You set it up with ice cubes or frozen water bottles. Circulates. Easy on and off. Pure bliss. Day or night! There are many brands. This is the one I used. I'm surprised no doc, pt or anyone told you about this! Got mine on Amazon. Ossur Cold Rush Compact System and Pads (with Knee Pad)

    Revision TKR Instability Question

    I think the important thing with the sticks is that they have something solid on the tips. My husband tried it yesterday with pointy tips and it didn't really work. I bought mine from the exerstrider folks because they have some that slide into place using a button rather than the twisting...
