    TKR I did it. A Second TKR!

    Hi everyone. I'm curious. I've had lots of time overthinking. I know shocker! Anyways I was wondering do the spinal block and meds given to help us not remember the surgery cause depression and anxiety or make existing issues worse? I have connected the dots of every time I have a surgery I seem...

    TKR 4 months on

    Hi! Here is my thoughts from my experiences. I had my right knee replaced 8 months ago. It is still numb in some areas. I had the tightness you are talking about. It will eventually go away. I also have the feelings of the hardware inside. It's a weird feeling. 3 weeks ago I had my left knee...

    TKR I did it. A Second TKR!

    I needed the reminder it will get better. I tend to get stuck thinking this is permanent. I went to my assessment at outpatient therapy today. My surgery was 3 weeks ago. Feels longer. My rom is 113 and I feel stronger. I will start next week for 4 weeks. I'm nervous but ready.

    TKR I did it. A Second TKR!

    Thank y'all so much! It is very encouraging to hear how y'all are doing and how the world is going on with this social distancing. I'm starting outpatient next week and can't wait to get back my strength. I am trying to process the fact I can actually do things instead of looking for places to...

    TKR I did it. A Second TKR!

    Today has been tough. I had my post op and all went well. Cleared to drive and given orders for out patient therapy. I have slept in this morning till 11. Feeling like I'm lazy. I keep reminding myself this is the time to sleep so I can heal. Beating myself up isn't necessary but I can't help...

    TKR I did it. A Second TKR!

    I am doing pretty good today but been sleeping a lot. Like literally sleeping in till 10 and laying in bed till 11. I nap some and now welcome the depression that makes no sense. I struggle with both anxiety and depression so this is expected. The uncertainty of life that the world is facing is...

    You are so right! Gotta be thankful for only 2 knees! I'm so ready to get to the 6 month mark. It amazes me how quick we turn corners on healing. One day it's horrible and the next it's like ok I can do this

    That's interesting. I feel I'm not doing anything really. I will try even less lol. I go to my post op on Wednesday. It will be 2 weeks and 1 day. I am ready to get the bandage off

    I'm curious does anyone have the pain at night? As the sun goes down my pain kicks up. I am icing it more. I also tend to sleep in a lot later and naps take me down lol

    Thank you for the reminder of the post op blues reading. I really needed it. I'm struggling with being isolated with the current virus plague in the world. Add on this recovery and my mind is starting up with the crazy questions of our purpose in life and how we are here. My mind being idle is...

    TKR I did it. A Second TKR!

    Hi everyone, It's been a while since I posted. I had my right knee replaced October last year. On may 19th I had my left knee done. I'm amazed at how different the surgery and recovery are different. I'm hitting the notorious depression mark and I'm prepared to fight through it. I wanted to...

    TKR I just scheduled my second TKR (left)

    Hi! I'm glad you reached out. I think it's important to have a great support system. I struggle with anxiety and depression and having surgery makes mine much worse. Feel free to ask me anything. The surgeon I have is aware of these issues and says it's normal for some. I will be happy to be a...

    TKR I just scheduled my second TKR (left)

    I am almost 3 months out from my right tkr and went ahead and scheduled my left for May 19th. I am scared but I did it because if I don't do it now I may not in the future. I am having pain in the left I didn't notice before but I know its from using it more. I am still in PT so that is helping...

    TKR I just scheduled my second TKR (left)

    I'm 2 1/2 months out and doing pretty good with range of motion. I am in office setting back to work full time. I find pain when I wear shoes. What shoes are most finding comfortable after surgery? I need non sneaker type.

    Thank you so much. I need to have reminders. I don't know why I think I should be superwoman. Heck I haven't done a lot of things in years. The inner critic and boredom is getting to me I guess.
