    [TKR] People are making me feel like a wimp after RTKR

    Oh Sunnie, that is so unfair to be told that. It took me a full year to recover from my first TKR. That was also how long I was at Physio for. Didn't drive for 12 weeks!! My second was faster and easier, so not only is everyone different but every TKR can be different. Hang in there and let the...

    Question please

    Thanks everyone. I appreciate all the info. My surgeon more or less admitted once that the first TKR may have been a bit tighter than it should be, I have never got as much flexion back in that one. No other problems so far though. The 2nd one tends to give way on me on the very odd occasion...

    The sooner you can get this done the quicker you will be back to enjoying your life again, painfree (after a pretty gruelling recovery period) but believe me, it is well worth the effort . Welcome to a wonderful forum :flowerysmile:
