    TKR I would welcome some advice after 2nd TKR (right)

    Hello Everyone, Just thought I’d pop in and give a quick update on “me”. I’m now just over 19 weeks or 4 months post op of TKR on my right knee. It was a very slow recovery initially and very painful so, having read a few of the updates today I wanted to give people who are having a hard time at...

    :loveshwr:I’ve got to say @skiforever I think you’re doing bloody amazing!! :dancy: If you turn your thinking around to all the things that you CAN do and focus less on the things that are more difficult I think you should be really really proud of yourself! A 3.5 mile canyon walk, diving...

    @Kipper11 great to hear you’re doing so well! Good on you - it’s terrific to hear the positive recovery stories too. Thank you for sharing your story. I’m good and although I wish it would go faster (doesn’t everyone!) I’ve got lots of experience of orthopaedic surgical recoveries now so I know...

    @Layla thank you! 2 months! Where did that go? Getting about much more steadily with just one crutch now! So pretty happy about that. Saw my physio yesterday and he did some muscle release work on my knee and I’ve noticed quite a difference today. Got to around 120 yesterday and just off by...

    TKR On the road to recovery finally.

    @JJT oh you poor love … it is hard to believe that their are such awful Surgeons out there but they are there indeed. I recall being told by a hip surgeon in the U.K. I. 2007 “don’t bother coming back to see me unless you are crawling into this office on your hands and knees, you’re too young...

    I must admit to having had a day in bed today. Combination of a cold and another big week as my boss was over here for the week. I feel like I collapsed in a puddle today LOL

    ps every hotel we stayed in I requested a plastic stool or chair for the shower and they all were able to assist! I thought that was impressive!

    Hello Everyone… got back from my big work trip last Sunday. All went well, I met my friend in London and she travelled with me to The Netherlands and helped me out a lot! I think I would have struggled on my own. All of the airport assistance was amazing - some was more efficient than others but...

    TKR Knee replacements are loosening

    Hi @Judells I’m not sure what part of Australia you are in but if by any chance you are in Melbourne I would recommend seeing A/Prof Andrew Shimmin at Melbourne Orthopaedic Group. He has rooms in The Avenue and in Brighton. He has done both my hips and both of my knees but more importantly is...

    Hello everyone! Just been catching up on all of the new threads. I’m at the airport now and about to start the trek to London and then on to Amsterdam. I am now genuinely at week 6 now (I thought I was at 6 weeks a week ago!) and the week has been a really good one! Finally managing some steps...

    There’s so much information available on this site! I have booked wheelchair assistance- Much as it pains me! My husband is going to get me to the check in desk and then I think Qantas will take over from that point. I left myself about 7 hours between flights as I have to change terminals (T3...

    That’s a great idea on the bags! I’ll do that. I’m sure they would do that for me with the ice. Thanks that’s great! Luckily for me I’m only transitioning through Heathrow on my way to Holland and my friend is meeting me in Heathrow - she lives in Devon. We are staying the night in an airport...
