    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    @Majic It sounds like you live where I live, haha! Today it is just below freezing, very windy and snowing. It's hard to walk in cold weather I've found because the metal implants get so cold which in turn makes my legs ache. I sure wish I would have saved some leg warmers from the 80's :)...

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    Thanks Celle! We're at 18 weeks, 6 days right now. In another 10 weeks we can breathe. They really need to make it to 28 weeks and 32 would be better. I have a feeling they are going to be just the thing I need to forget about my knees! I can't wait :)

    TKR Nana Moon's Shiny New Second Knee

    Hi Anne, I got a notification you had posted and wanted to see how you are and to say hello! So, hello! I'm glad you are doing much better. It's a shame that night time is so unpleasant for you. I hope you get to the bottom of the restless legs and night time pain. Please let us know how...

    Revision TKR Revision Completed...Ready to get back to my life...<

    I had one with and one without. My first knee they numbed my entire leg using ultrasound to guide the needle to the nerve bundles. I think they shot the numbing medication into 3 nerve bundles. It was great! They didn't even take me into the OR until my leg was "dead". It took about 20...

    TKR Nana Moon's Shiny New Second Knee

    Don't worry Ann :) Remember, this is a roller coaster ride of a recovery. No two days are the same and today may not necessarily be better than yesterday but it doesn't mean anything is wrong. It sounds like you might be experiencing some extra swelling which will definitely inhibit your ROM...

    TKR Nana Moon's Shiny New Second Knee

    Just catching up on you Ann :) Everything sounds like you are doing just great this time around. I can feel you smiling in your written words and I'm very happy for you. Your PT sounds like a dream gal. I loved mine too. I have no doubt recovery would have been different if not for her...

    TKR Nana Moon's Shiny New Second Knee

    Looks great Ann :) It doesn't look too swollen or bruised. Keep up the good work. Any word on when you'll be released?

    It's so good to see you post and know that the op is now over and you can get on with life. Try to rest as much as you can and don't let them push you too hard. xox

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    Thank you everyone for the compliments on the pictures :) @SuperSnapper Have a glorious time! We had beautiful weather through our whole 5 weeks until the last day and it poured rain in Rome. We surely can't complain. Switzerland is on my radar for a future visit. Have fun!

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    You'll do great! I still have some stiffness too but it gets better little by little all the time. And it sure beats the awful bone on bone pain, right? Your cruise should be fantastic. We were in Venice and I absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back sometime. It is just so beautiful...

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    In 2 days my left knee will be 10 months old and next week my right knee will be 7 months old. I'm doing really well now. We just got back from 5 weeks traveling to and around Italy and I have no regrets. We did a similar trip last year and even though we had a great time, my knees were...

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    Sorry to be so tardy in answering you. I've been out of the country :) I had my surgeries at Ortho Indy with Dr. Joseph C. Randolph. Sorry I can't be of help with the Mooresville place.

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    Update! My right knee is now over 5 months old and my left is about 8 1/2 months old. I had a follow up appt. with my OS this past Monday. My main complaint was over my right knee/leg. It was continuing to stiffen up on me and be painful at times. Standing, climbing stairs and straightening...

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    @Nana moon 27 Yep, I've tried it all including suspending my leg with my heel on a chair and laying an 8# weight on my knee to force it down. It has gotten better but just isn't quite there yet. Hopefully one day it will be. @Angel1978 17 degrees? I need to quit complaining now. You've...

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    @Nana moon 27 If I had to guess, I would say my extension is about 3 degrees a lot of the time. My PT pushed it to zero on my last visit but it was very painful when she did it. Some days it feels straighter than others. I was very spoiled by my first knee being at zero extension from the...

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    @Nana moon 27 For the most part my legs are ok. I'm still dealing with stiffness which is quite uncomfortable at times. If I have a particularly active day with a lot of time up on my feet they swell still and ache. The strange thing is they don't swell in the knee area. They swell through...

    TKR gr82cu2 Hello new knee, it's great to see you!

    Hi @Nana moon 27 Thanks for stopping by again. I'm doing ok. I'm very happy to report my father in law has been discharged from the hospital and is doing well so far. He's 86 so every setback is a worry. The memorial service for my mother in law had to be postponed a week and will be this...
