    Why can't I often find my thread?

    Thanks newlybionic ... actually I got her when she was 4 ... she was a breeding female in a puppy mill .... she'd already had 4 liters. She was a mess ..... afraid of grass, I had to teach her to go up and down steps, not to be afraid of crunchy leaves. She never did get the idea of play...

    Revision TKR Totally recovered at last!

    Hi there and WELCOME. This is a GREAT place when you've had this type of surgery. My first RTKR caused some problems .... I fell on my knees and apparently did something to it ... loosened it or something. I had the revision done and my knee is absolutely wonderful ..... one exception I...

    Why can't I often find my thread?

    Update: I've been in Harrisonburg, VA since Oct. 2015 and don't care for it. I don't want to offend anyone, but the folks here are not at all friendly. I'm looking for an apt. in Staunton or Waynesboro. ((actually, if it weren't for my girls being here, I'd be back in my condo in MD in a...

    MUA Unsuccessful Manipulation?<

    OUCH! Everything you're telling us makes me cringe ..... manipulation? weights on your thigh? I'm not a doctor or nurse, but all that sounds just plain nuts. You sure you're seeing an Orthopedic doctor? I was always told by my P.T. and my doctor to just do the exercise "up to the pain"...

    Revision TKR 1½ Years Out

    Hi there Jamie! Core strength ..... ummmmm ..... I don't think I have any at all anymore. I have not done real exercising since the whole knee thing started. So, now I've got saddlebags full of M&M's, and the upper arms of an out of shape boxer! Once I get this knee straightened out...

    TKR Recovering & Getting Ready for #2

    Hi there .... that used to happen to me constantly when I was coming here throughout the whole ordeal. Made me nuts! It must be something in the system that does that .... that's all I can figure. Pound on the door ...... and someone will answer. :) See you soon again, abby:flwrysmile:

    Revision TKR 1½ Years Out

    Hi everyone! It's good to be back and see you all again. Well, I'm 1½ years out from my revision on my right knee and it feels perfect ..... no pain or discomfort at all (unless it's going to rain). Only problem is that I have balance problems. I have fallen several times, and the last...

    Revision TKR 1½ Years Out

    Thanks Charmed .... I'd do that but he's 3 hours away since I moved in October. I would go see him if I were closer. I also have to still use my hands to get up from the toilet. The knee feels great, but obviously it's weakened. abby (Barb)

    Revision TKR 1½ Years Out

    Hi everyone .... I'm back again ..... I hope you all, that are able, contribute to the site. Jamie and Josephine have worked like crazy to help us all and now we can support them. I had my revision 1½ years ago, and after a lot of hard work (P.T.) my knee is great. But, the biggest problem...

    Revision TKR Still having difficulty .... from Amberpep

    Hi all .... before the first TKR I was a regular "exerciser" ..... since the RTKR, the removal of the scarr tissue, and the revision TKR (a period of time a little over 3 years), I have done nothing except walk my dog, and that is only 2x a day and short as there is really nowhere to walk her...

    Revision TKR Still having difficulty .... from Amberpep

    Hi Pumpkin .... Yes, I went to the Strain/Counterstrain PT when I was in Frederick. Mr. Tuckey had several PT's that took the necessary classes and were just excellent. I don't know if there are any down here or not. I've just written to Karen, the P.T. that used it on me and it was...

    Why can't I often find my thread?

    HI EVERYONE! Yes, I'm still alive .... just in the middle and end of moving to Harrisonberg, VA. So, I'm here now ..... I'd like some input and advice from you all. Since my revision my balance has been way off. Off to the point of falling for little to very little reason. It's scary...

    Revision TKR Still having difficulty .... from Amberpep

    BALANCE ... well, that's another issue. Since I had my knee done, I still don't have the balance I did before then. I've taken more than one topple and have to be very careful. The day before I moved I got up during the night, thought I was somewhere else and got confused, and next thing I...

    Changing city and state

    Since I was last here, I have moved from Frederick, MD to Harrisonburg, VA. How do I change this on my profile? Barb (abby)

    Revision TKR Still having difficulty .... from Amberpep

    HI NANA ...... It's been awhile since I've visited with you all. I thought being a senior citizen meant they were the "golden years." RIGHT! I must have missed them. Well, I've finally moved down here to Harrisonburg, VA, just last week. My daughters had set up the furniture, stocked my...

    Revision TKR Still having difficulty .... from Amberpep

    Thank you Jamie for the "it will soon be over" part. I think I lose sight of that. It feels like it will go on forever.Oh yes my foot .... you know, this is the second time I broke that foot since I had my revision. This break was at a different place and a bit worse, thus the full cast...

    Revision TKR Still having difficulty .... from Amberpep

    I'm glad to hear KarriB that you've made it through your ordeal .... wow, that sounds like it was a rough road there for you for awhile. I'm glad you're on your upswing. Isn't this site wonderful? Jamie and Josephine do such a wonderful job with answering questions, calming us (me) down...

    Revision TKR Still having difficulty .... from Amberpep

    JAMIE - You are so very right ..... other folks have said the same thing to me. And, I don't think that they realize that I am now 70 and things change. To them, I'm still the same Mom I always was .... well, no, I'm not .... Divorce teaches you a lot of things, and as you age many more...

    Revision TKR Still having difficulty .... from Amberpep

    Yes, I definitely will be in touch. I've found too that this is high stress time .... my foot in this cast sure doesn't help things either. I'm thankful my knee is great. I'm still apprehensive about this move, but I'm "biting the bullet" so they say and going. My girls are so excited it's...
