    TKR Toni Lee Recovery Thread

    I kept the walker next to the bed for safety reasons until this past week. I liked having it nearby to grab onto when first getting out of bed and to steady myself while putting on my slippers.

    TKR Mmassagee Recovery Thread

    I was at the 4-5 week point when I decided PT was doing more harm to me than good. Won’t repeat all the ways I was tortured, but you can read my account. When I found this site, I quit PT and when I have my other knee done, I will skip it all together. Putting your leg on a coffee table to...

    TKR Recovering nicely

    Thursday it was 6 months since my son died. The Hospice counselor called to check on me the week before. At one point she said she thought I had PTSD due to witnessing everything my son went thru and end of life decisions that we had to make. Keep in mind I could not walk and was in a...

    TKR Hello everyone

    That PT shocking device was one of the last straws before I quit PT altogether. The only way I got thru it was pretending I was a spy being tortured with tears streaming down my face— I only would give my name, rank, and serial number. My extension was a worry to me also, but I have...

    TKR Surgery date August 27, 2019

    In hope so! My surgery was one day before yours and I have been crossing me legs for some time now, but not for long stretches of time.

    TKR Total Left Knee Replacement

    I think it was about 6 weeks for me too. The pillow between my knees never felt right. Suddenly I could sleep on my side again.

    My knee was a sudden blowout this summer so I think my legs are strong. I occasionally catch myself taking steps the normal way. I think I will just not worry about it and let it happen like you said, thx

    Monday will be 12 weeks PO. I am still doing steps one at a time. When and how will I know I can trust taking stairs the normal way? Thx

    TKR Toni Lee Recovery Thread

    “Hopefully, had my second-to-last, home-based PT today. This PT stuff REALLY has me in a twist. The emphasis placed on PT throughout this process has been insane. At times I feel if I do not do everything to par and if I do not follow PTs advice to the "T" no matter, I'll never walk...

    I wonder if the grief and surgery is my excuse to just wallow. I am usually busy and active with things, but just don’t feel like engaging right now. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Maybe the grief explains why I can’t seem to want to read or knit or quilt. Just can’t stick with anything right now.

    Laundry baskets are the worst. I drag them when I have to or just carry a few clothes at a time. Thanks.

    TKR Recovering nicely

    Can someone please change the title of my post to “Recovering Nicely”. I know some have good PT experiences and some of mine was. I was upset when I chose that title. Tomorrow is 11 weeks PO and my new joint feels more like it is part of me and I am getting back to my pre-injury and TKR...

    TKR Recovering nicely

    I am positive my surgeon wouldn’t replace my knee before needed nor would I allow it. After spending months in a wheelchair due to my sudden right knee blowout, I can’t help being concerned my other knee will follow.
