    A veteran returns....

    Hello all. I had a RTKR in April 2008 and a LTKR in October 2008. Yes, my second knee is having it's one year anniversary. I found this forum just before my first TKR and it was a total godsend. All those silly little recovery questions--everything form stool softeners (Take Them!) to...

    I just got back from PT and I am so happy! After 4 1/2 months post-op, I finally managed 125 today! I had been making very slow small gains and my PT and I were just debating if 110-120 was going to be the best I ever got to. Well, I worked hard on it all weekend and pushed it into the...

    Obsession with numbers

    So, many of obsess about our numbers, especially flexing. I know I do. My outpatient PT does NOT measure me every visit--only every third or fourth one. This made me crazy at first but he says it is for a reason... We all do go up and down, good days and bad...or simply plateau. This...
