    TKR Joe’s Recovery Jourknee

    Hi again and thanks for checking in on me Layla.. I had my 3 month follow up yesterday with my OS. He said X-rays looked good. I'm feeling pretty good overall. I still have some pain and stiffness especially after sitting or resting for a while but it loosen's up with activity. I've been...

    TKR Joe’s Recovery Jourknee

    Hi @Layla. Thanks for the inquiry. Things have been going pretty smoothly. I'm still working on ROM as my flexion was 113 yesterday. Dr said he wanted 115 by my next visit Nov 29th. I signed up for 3 more weeks of PT as I find it helps me a lot to have someone I trust help me with my...

    Thanks @benne68, I still take them occasionally like for PT or at night when I can’t get comfortable. I’m somewhat concerned about the cyst or bump on my patella. Googling mentions bursitis or possible infection of some kind. It does cause pain when bending.

    Day 26 Post Op Haven’t posted here in a bit mainly because my recovery has been going pretty well and has been mostly unremarkable. Flexion was measured at 100 degrees today in PT. I love my PT as she is very receptive to my feedback and doesn’t push too hard. I took a walk yesterday for about...

    1st outpatient PT was mostly evaluation. But I got a good vibe from the therapist. I told her I don’t want to go more than 8 on the pain scale and she was fine with it. She did have me do some quad sets and other basic stuff. And she wants me to do an hour on the CPM 3 times/day at 90 degrees...

    17 days Post Op I used the CPM last night and after a slow build up was able to do 110 for 1 rep then backed it down and did 10 more at 100. I suspect the numbers on the machine aren’t true degrees but it‘s still major progress. I found a gentle flexion exercise that I like. In a rocking...

    Thankfully I’m done with him. His was the last of the home therapy sessions. Next week I move to OP part. 3/week for 4 weeks. And yes I think he’s clueless too.

    Thanks for the question. My PT told me as much. He said you seem to be slow to progress and proceeded to tell me about another patient of his that achieved 120 at 2 weeks and she is older than I. I don‘t know if he’s clueless or just trying to motivate me. But it really bothered me. Made my...

    Btw when doing pt yesterday one of the exercises was doing a standing leg curl and as weak my hamstrings are I could hardly get my foot up off the ground a few inches. This seems like a good exercise but I’m just amazed at how week my hamstrings are.

    16 days Post Op and doing well. Still have pain and swelling especially after pt. Was able to attain 90 degrees flexion yesterday for the 1st time and I’m thrilled. I’ve discovered that if I allow enough time for healing between PT sessions I can make small gains. Not too worried about...

    Thanks so much Jaycey. I’m kind of old school and hard headed and really needed to hear that. Again. Sorry about the double post.

    11 days Post Op today and everything seems to be going well so far I’m getting more comfortable hobbling around the house and even “forgot” my cane a couple times when going room to room walking unaided for a few steps. I can walk unaided for about 20 steps without feeling like I’m pushing...

    Post Op Day 6 and things seem to be progressing well. Small improvements in little things like getting up and around more independently and taking care of personal hygiene type stuff all getting easier as I get more stable being on my feet. Wife is wonderful helping me with everything. And I’m...

    Thanks @Layla. People you trust and medical professionals tell you for a long time that ‘A‘ is true. It’s not easy to break out of that indoctrination. It feels like leaving a religion or a cult.
