    TKR Good advice please!!

    That sounds good to me! I have bow legs since the early surgeries which have always made me walk unbalanced and when l spoke to my recent OS he said there would be some straightening up with the TKR which would be good. Its been amazing hearing from you to be honest I have never spoken to...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Thanks again Sistersinhim. When I had my first knee cap removed I was 18years old back in the day when we didn’t question things so much as we do now. My OS then was very stern and quite scary to be honest that’s why I am looking for a far more approachable one now as wisdom comes with age and I...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi Sistersinhim Thanks for the great reply. My current OS when I mentioned to him about having no knee caps he just said about tendon/ligament work as I knew very little about the shortened tendons due to the lack of knee caps I didn’t ask anymore about it. I will definitely be asking these...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi Sistersinhim Thank you for your recent post. It’s so good to talk to someone who has had TKR without patellar’s as I have not come across that yet maybe someone with one removed but not both. As I was unaware of the possibility that I could have wires after having them removed I have never...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Good evening sistersinhim Thank you for talking to me. My knee caps had to be removed as I said in earlier posts my corrective surgery I had in 1971 was unsuccessful and my knees went from very knocked kneed to bowed as they were over corrected due to poor aftercare. I was then diagnosed with...

    Bilateral TKR Kinda Nervous, Maybe Scared

    Hi Justme2020 I joined this site on Friday just gone and already I feel more positive and chilled about the whole TKR thing. I also do not know if to have both knees done at the same time or one after the other. The thing I do know is it’s the right thing to do as I feel my life is on hold at...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Good morning everyone I forgot to say in my previous posts that I do not have knee caps (patellar’s) on both knees and was wondering if anyone else is going to have or has had TKR’s without knee caps. I had my first one removed when I was 18 and the second one a year later. I lost them both due...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi Helizabug Thank you so much for your post it really does help to get another persons experience of the surgery and how it all went on the day. When I think about it when I had an epidural for my C-section for my second daughter it was classed as a mayor operation and I was wide awake and to...

    Hi Jaycey That’s sounds really lovely a nice comfy sleep something I do not get much of with these knees :sad:. I don’t really think I want to know what’s going on just want them to do there job and get to the post op side. Since joining yesterday I am feeling very positive about the whole TKR...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Good morning Tykey I have just been reading the spinal block link and I remember the epidural I had was a top up so different from the spinal which as you say the spinal is a one off. When I attend the knee evening on the 16th March there will be someone from the anaesthetics department there as...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi Helizabug That sounds nice being already sleeping from the sedation I had epidural for my children’s births so I guess the spinal is similar? Did the spinal work for you with pain relief after the surgery? It defiantly is a project and having all new people on board to chat to like yourself...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    It’s something I have thought about as both knees are as bad it’s not like I have a good one to help out while the “new knee” is recovering. I will give it a lot of thought and will ask the surgeons when I see them.

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi Jaycey Yes I quite agree I have had so much help and reassurance on my first day of joining and this is definitely the place to be for good, sound advice. It’s just so good to know you are not alone and there are other lovely people taking this journey on and for the best part winning. You...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Yes that sounds like a good cocktail :). And I believe good pain relief after. When I attend the knee evening I will be seeing one surgeon and I will have a lot of Q&A’s for him and I have already seen one surgeon and he has carried out arthroscopy’s on both knees which went really well and...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    OMG that is such an amazing account of your surgery day. If mine is half as good I will be more than happy. I have been reading about spinal for the surgery and that it can be very useful for pain relief after. I think I would need to also have good sedation as I would not want to hear any of...

    TKR Good advice please!!

    Hi again Tykey Yes you got the “lass” bit right!! It is so good to hear such positive news and how much you are able to do with your new knees. You are right a positive attitude really does help and I agree with taking the recovery slowly and doing what you can, slow and steady wins the race as...
