    TKR TKRDogMom's Recovery RTKR

    Sorry I haven't been on and updating. I'm obviously not a natural blogger. I've been doing great. My formal PT has ended but I will keep up with many of the exercises I learned. I am walking without any assisting devices now. My stamina isn't long but I can manage to get around and do what needs...

    TKR TKRDogMom's Recovery RTKR

    If it was just the knee surgery I had to contend with, this would be an easy recovery. I've had no problem with getting chores done and taking care of the dogs. They have been awesome and real assets to the healing process. Going out twice a week to PT has been working well and pretty much...

    TKR TKRDogMom's Recovery RTKR

    I thought I would get started (finally) with my recovery thread. I had my right TKR done Monday 8/29. I was only in the hospital one night and then home. I was rather out of it and slept a lot the first couple days. When I was "awake", I was trying to focus on my exercises and getting things...

    TKR TKRDogMom's Pre-Op Thread

    I know I haven't been on much. So much to do to prepare. Plus I usually help my elderly mother with getting groceries and such. We've done a big trip to Walmart and a big trip to the grocery store and she is as stocked up on non-perishables and other items as she can get. She can handle small...

    TKR TKRDogMom's Pre-Op Thread

    As far as energy goes, these pups really don't have a lot. They are all older in age and pretty much lay around and nap. They have a gigantic fenced yard to run in, if desired, and bark at the neighborhood kids playing across the street (which seems to involve a lot of screaming, LOL). My son...

    TKR TKRDogMom's Pre-Op Thread

    All five of my dogs are mixed breed rescues. I have a Rottweiler/Puggle mix (70 lbs), a Border Collie/Whippet mix (65 lbs), a collie/hound mix (74 lbs), a St. Bernard/Australian Shepherd mix (128 lbs) and a Heinz-57 (65 lbs). Last summer I had two other dogs as well...a Husky/Malamute mix who...

    TKR TKRDogMom's Pre-Op Thread

    I've tried to find someone to walk them but unsuccessfully. They have free access to a large fenced in yard, so they will be fine without walks.

    TKR TKRDogMom's Pre-Op Thread

    Well it's finally happening. August 29th I am getting my right knee replaced. My surgeon about fell out of his chair when I finally agreed to it. He said he has only been telling me to do it for 8 years, to which I responded that I obviously had another 8 years on the original equipment. LOL...

    Home Alone After Surgery

    Thank you for all the wonderful ideas. I am getting my right knee done August 29th. I will be in the hospital one night and then going home alone to a two story house and 5 large dogs. My dogs have the ability to go in and out of the house to a large fenced yard on their own. They will be alone...

    2022 August Hotshots - Are you having knee surgery in August?

    I am scheduled for a R TKR on August 29th. Both of my knees are bone on bone and have spurs growing over the edges. My surgeon has been seeing me for knee and leg pain for 10 years and had been recommending surgery for 8 years. I finally have coverage at work so I can get them done. I will...
