    Living life post BTKR

    Bilateral TKR Lounge Doctor?

    I ordered a cheaper version & then saw on someone’s post op thread that it was not recommended as it had the wrong angle.i returned the cheaper one & I have the lounge dr in my amazon cart & have wavered back & forth on buying it.

    Bilateral TKR Got my date for BTKR

    I’m scheduled for Mar 16 - that was the 1st available - he does 2 knee replacements/ week. I’m excited to move forward & scared too. It was interesting - he recommended both at once before I even asked him.

    Bilateral TKR Adjustable bed?

    I will be moving in about a month & am looking at getting a new bed. I was considering an adjustable one. Seems it may be useful during recovery but I’ve never had one so am not sure if it’s worth the extra cost. Do any of you have one & if so was it helpful ?

    Can riding the stationary bike cause harm presurgery?

    I’m trying to get in the best shape possible before I schedule knee replacement , hopefully in Jan.

    Knee replacement compared to prolapse surgery

    5 years ago I had surgery for prolapse, spent 5 days in the hospital, home with a Catheter & was exhausted for months. At the same time I was told my knees were bone on bone, but it’s taken me this long to be ready for my body to be cut into again. How similar is the recovery period? I’m hoping...

    Getting ready / appt with surgeon scheduled

    Hi I am Pam & am new to the forum. I’m 62, live in OR & was told 5 yr ago that my knees are bone on bone & it’s time to consider replacement. I’ve had injections a few times & don’t want more of them. It’s having a huge impact on my ability to do what I want- can’t do stairs or hike, but am not...
