    TKR 2nd Tkr August 11, 2023

    Hello! Recovery is progressing. It’s just a slow day by day shuffle forward. But I’m healing. How about you? How far along are you, and how’s it going?

    TKR 2nd Tkr August 11, 2023

    I had my first TKR (left knee) in 2017. I just had the right knee done on August 11, 2023. So much has changed. The recovery is daunting, so I put off the right knee as long as I could. Finally after the shots, walking with a limp and a dip, I scheduled the right knee (only to cancel and...

    TKR 9 weeks and still using a walker

    Wow! There is such a difference in doctors! I’m in Michigan, in the U.S. Where are you? I agree with all the voices saying get a second opinion. My Dr cleared me for 90 days off and a restricted return to work at 12 weeks. He sent me home with a huge bottle of Percocet, which I used...

    TKR Return to work

    This answer really underscores my concerns. I’ll be at 12 week’s post op but I know that a long day at school is still too much. I’m going to try for some sort of phased return. Hopefully half days for a few weeks, and of course I’ll minimize my time standing as much as I can.

    TKR Return to work

    Thank you for your response, people outside of the professional may not understand the physical demands involved. What do you mean by a “staged return”?

    TKR Return to work

    I am recovering from TKR surgery (Nov 2) in two weeks, Feb 1. I am a teacher in a second grade classroom. I am somewhat concerned about my return to work because it means an eight day with most of those hours on my feet. I see my surgeon next week and I want to discuss reasonable restrictions...
