Hi Robin, I'm at 7 months and I'm not much past the 90 degree mark but I decided it was not going to stop me! Loaded up my camper this weekend by myself and went to a State Park. I had to lie down on the ground to get the lights hooked up It was the getting back up that was a sight!!! I'm back...
Yes, it is expensive, I can justify buying mine because I have one more knee to go . Hopefully, I can pass mine on to someone else after my next knee replacement...at 4 months I'm still using it on the days I overdo it ad have to ice from swelling.

Had a visit to my OS on Monday, I have until the end of the week to decide about a MUA...I'm almost to 90 degrees. He stated my Window of Opportunity is about up for a MUA. I asked him what the most in degrees would I gain and he stated most TKR only get...
Sending you hugs and good luck!!! I feel like you, Robin and I are all in the same boat! I dread going to my OS on the 22nd, I'm scared he is going to tell me I need a MUA. Good luck and keep us all posted!!!
I also get the stiffness, which I hate and it feels like I have a 10lb. weight strapped around my knee! After a while I walk like Chester on Gunsmoke! That is when I come in and elevate and ice again. I was not told about stockings...do these go over the knee?
