    [TKR] Sondrals’ recovery

    I think your decision to do the second one is great. I still felt far from recovered with my first one when I did it again, and mentally I feel in control now as I know it’s all about moving on. You won’t regret it. Why wait?

    [MUA] Depressed over ROM issues

    My MUA changed the course of my recovery. I never looked back! Bending was the issue - it’s now possible to function normally. No idea what the number is. Don’t care. But it’s definitely over 90, which I could not get before.

    [MUA] Depressed over ROM issues

    All I can say, having had big problems with my first knee and a successful MUA at 12 weeks and now again ROM issues with my second, my surgeon said absolutely no point in doing MUA until necessary. Until for sure there are adhesions / scar tissue to break. I understand this logic. Seems way too...

    [TKR] The long and winding road - round 2

    Can absolutely relate to your drama. Every time I try to do big things, something lands on the floor and it escalates from there. It neve4 seemed that hard before.

    [TKR] Wendy EL's recovery thread

    I would be thrilled at 110... that’s what my first knee achieved after a MUA and it’s fine mostly l. My second knee, now 8 weeks in, is only around 60 and I’m looking at a MUA in 5 weeks if it’s as stuck as it still is.

    [TKR] Week 3 running late

    Sounds like my ghastly staples are probably still the better option. My incision and bandaging was not an issue. I thought I missed out on this new glue procedure. Maybe not. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    [TKR] Hello everyone

    Walking unaided after a week would have been a miracle for me... I needed a walker for weeks, unable to trust my new knee or find muscles to do it. Consider yourself lucky at this stage I reckon. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    [TKR] Aug 20 hard work.

    You are not alone with crying.... I have never been this way and now find just a few minutes of sobbing - sometimes not really being able to explain what brings it on - is cathartic. I’m exhausted after each breakdown and feel better for it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    [PARTIAL KR] Sideways movement after PKR

    @Jamie. Perfectly expressed. Unsure why we battle to “get” this when we’re at our worst. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    [TKR] Sondrals’ recovery

    It often feels like you’re never going to progress. I also battled and seemed behind so many others, wondering what I did wrong. Personally, I think you are currently in the middle of the worst part and should just get the other one done too, as you are so limited anyway. Thereafter you can work...

    [TKR] Tykey's second knee replacement

    You still appear to have small scabs in places. I have a few too and was told categorically today NOT to get into the pool yet. I was surprised, because it feels adequately “closed”. But apparently not. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    [TKR] Steelergal's Recovery Thread^

    @Jamie. Thank you for clarifying and better explaining the MUA issue. This forum has given the impression it’s to be avoided at all costs and I, at 13 weeks, so reluctantly thought it worth trying at 60 or so degree bend. I have never looked back. It was nothing like starting the recovery again...

    [TKR] Never satisfied PT office

    I never got to 107 with my first knee even after having had a MUA. I think that number is great so early on. Don’t let them tell you otherwise. It’s difficult enough getting through this recovery. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    [TKR] Sondrals’ recovery

    I sympathise. What I found difficult about going back to work too was everyone’s expectations of how much better I should be. It’s stressful to try to get back to being functional, when you’re actually so broken. It’s a lonely place to be. Take care of yourself. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    [TKR] Steelergal's Recovery Thread^

    I agree @Jamie. I need MUA on my first knee after 13 weeks when I still was around 70... it worked wonders. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    [TKR] Carole’s recovery thread

    I loved the pool with my first knee too. There’s something still and supportive about being in water. I’ve been given the go ahead from next week and am so looking forward to it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
