    TKR Post Op Incision Care

    It's hard to believe it's been 3 months since I've posted! Covid has made life a little off kilter, but I am doing well-and I don't want to jinx myself by saying that. But when the Corona virus first reared it's ugly head I was really struggling with an injury sustained in Feb 2020 due to an...

    TKR Post Op Incision Care

    It's been a few weeks since I've posted. I am 18 weeks post LTKR and have been doing okay. I have been in the house since 3/12 and just recently started going out for curbside pickup for pet supplies and am going to try that for groceries later this week. My knee still feels like I'm suffering...

    TKR Feel so alone

    Hey Flash 1955 - I'm glad you were able to find out the cause of your swelling. Rest, ice and elevation are key for you right now. Take care.

    TKR Post Op Incision Care

    Thank you Jockette! I think my ROM should still be good. It's the pain that gets old! I feel 100% and then the pain reminds me 'oh yeah, there's that.' Today seems like the first down day I've had in awhile. I haven't elevated in awhile and I am now, and it really helps.

    TKR Post Op Incision Care

    I'm feeling sad and upset and not sure what to think. Some of my feelings I'm sure are related to the Corona virus. The other part is not fully understanding what is going on with my knee. After formally being diagnosed about a month ago with an injury sustained during PT on 2/6 and resting for...

    Bilateral PKR A hiker's new knees

    Sorry for the delay in responding back. I'll have to check out Costco. But I've heard that place has been nuts because of the Corona virus.

    TKR My Tkr took a turn for the worse..

    Oh gosh, I am so sorry you experienced an over zealous physical therapist. I had a similar experience and it wasn't pleasant. Follow Celle's suggestions by calling your surgeon and no more PT. Your job now is to ice and elevate as much as possible. I would make sure there is a cloth barrier...

    Revision TKR Work causing need for multiple revisions?

    I enjoyed the CPM up until the last few days. I was too fidgety! I do think it helped with my ROM.

    MUA 8 weeks and still not sleeping. ☹️

    Thank you for the well wishes! I'm sitting things out here in Missouri. It is a scary time right now. All of the usual things you do every day will be plenty of movement for your knee while your gym is shuttered these next few weeks. I don't get too tripped out on the stairs. I know that sounds...

    Hi Wood man! I'm glad to hear you're doing well. How was PT today?

    Revision TKR Work causing need for multiple revisions?

    Those CPM's are like a full time job! I have a DonJoy ice machine and I was able to strap the icing pad on while I was doing my duty on that machine!
