    TKR Ellejay's recovery threads, first and second

    @SuperSnapper - how lovely to hear from you Mary, and with such good news about your knee. Sorry that the other is now playing up, I felt that I'd rather get both knee replacements out of the way a) so I could have the same surgeon, b) so the main recovery for both would be over as quickly as...

    TKR Ellejay's recovery threads, first and second

    Hello and Happy New Year to all Bonesmarties, and particularly to anyone who remembers me. I meant to post this yesterday -my three year anniversary - :wowspring:- but I forgot! How did that happen, three years!!?? Both knees (even the 'baby' at just over 2 years) are absolutely fine, I never...

    TKR Nana Moon's Shiny New Second Knee

    So glad to hear your good news (for both of you). I am on holiday in France again, and my good news is.....I am finding that daily use of the swimming pool here is increasing my bend - TWO YEARS ON!!! I am having lots of exercise, walking, cycling, yoga and swimming, more than I take at home, so...

    Don't worry about the bend in your knee - it WILL improve! Slowly and gradually, but it will improve. Just don't force it, you will only cause inflamation which will make it take longer. I found that I was very comfortable lying on my back on the bed with my legs up the wall, this helped to...

    So glad that things seem to be improving @DodgyKnee, I hope it continues to do so. You will feel much better once the staples come out.

    TKR Here we go again

    Hi @Yorkshiregal54 , I agree with others, it might be a good idea to speak to a professional regarding your escapee stitch. I am really well, I'm walking and cycling everywhere now the summer has eventually arrived and so my weight is finally dropping. Nowhere near as good as you yet, but I am...

    @DodgyKnee , I'm so sorry you are still in such pain, as @LoveGiants says, the first week or two is really painful, and I think, if we're honest, most of us on here regretted having the op at some point during that time. It IS worth it, I went from hardly managing to walk 200yards and that with...

    TKR Here we go again

    Hiya, don't despair, 16 days is nothing. I used to get very frustrated with my second knee, but when I looked back at my posts for the first I was actually doing quite well, and of course they will both heal in totally different ways, so we can't really compare them. Don't worry about the bend...

    TKR DodgyKnee no more<

    I'm so sorry you have had such pain-are you taking the paracetamol & Tramadol at the same time? There was a very useful 'schedule' on here somewhere, that gave a timetable of timings and dosages for the Tramadol, Paracetamol and Ibuprofen for a 24hour period, it worked really well for me. I'll...

    Hi @DodgyKnee, I'm glad you're at home now and can control your own recovery, stay upstairs as long as you can, as long as you have enough to keep you occupied, and can do some gentle exercise its the best place to be. One tip you may like to consider....I had a cool bag by the side of my bed so...

    TKR Post op RTKR

    Hi @suemegane, It was great to read your update, I'm sure you will find you will improve all the time, my first knee took a whole two years to get to its peak, my second still has four months to go, but the fact that I managed Helvellyn earlier this year means they are both fine as far as I'm...

    Well done you! Obviously a very determined lady, The Inca Trail and now a wedding just after a TKR. I wish you a successful and speedy recovery.

    TKR Here we go again

    Hi @Yorkshiregal54 - lovely to 'chat' again, but sorry that it's taken a 2nd TKR to do it! You are very brave to contemplate a wedding so soon after your op, I do hope it all goes well for you and you can get plenty of rest. My 2nd knee was fine, but I can honestly say both knees took a good 18...

    Hi @SuperSnapper - good to hear from you, how are you? As you've seen, my knees are brilliant, I'm walking, cycling and even climbing mountains (small ones). At this very moment I'm sitting in a very familiar position in my recliner, foot raised on cushions....I've just had a steroid injection...
