    TKR Knee Wedge

    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.

    TKR Slow and Steady Recovery

    @funkymuse 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?
