    [TKR] Left One Done 7/31/14

    @Sonja, where in New York are you coming? I live in Upstate Ny. PT has given me exercizes to do at home. I find that if I don't, the knees get stiff and have some pain. I am also starting back at the gym since my insurance will only cover a specific amount of therapy visits. That's ok...

    Wow! It has been since January that I have posted!! Time flies!! Anyway, having issues with year old ltkr. Also, back problems. Have gone back to therapy but at a different one. Seem to be having more attention to problem than at old PT. I am worried, though. When I left the old PT, I was...

    [TKR] Left One Done 7/31/14

    @Josephine Have a question about kinetic tape. Does it work? Do you think, in your opinion, that it would benefit my knee? My OS had taken xrays of my knee done two years ago and said the plate was slightly off center and that is why I am still having some pain issues. He says it is not bad...

    [TKR] 9 months since my Surgery with problem

    @sjm1027 In regards to the suggestion of Yoga, I was taking a class at my local Y called Gentle Yoga. It is hard for me to get down on the floor so I, with the help of the instructor, structured the moves to be done in a chair. The room in which we had the class was one that was used for some...

    @kneeper Won't know about the antibiotics till next month when I see my ENT doc. But I had good news in PT Wednesday. I have been officially discharged. My flexion was 113-the best I have ever had!! Looks like my trip to Atlanta last weekend did some good. I did do a lot of walking and...

    [TKR] Left One Done 7/31/14

    Saw my Os today. H is pleased with my progress on my new left knee. Had me bend my knee and I told him the last PT session it measured 105. He thinks that it is more like a 115! I will go for that. :loll: He did say that from the xrays he took today, it looks like the pain I have been...

    Went back to the doc for the Vertigo and he referred me to an ENT doc. She has me going to a special PT person next week. She also prescribed a low dose of Valium twice a day. I really hesitate to start taking it because I have read that it is very addictive. Has anyone ever heard of this...

    [TKR] Left One Done 7/31/14

    Can't seem to shake this vertigo. :hairpulling: Just on my right side when I lay in bed. So tired of sleeping on my left side. It started last week and my gp doesn't think it is the crystal thing. He seems to think it is an eustachian tube dysfunction. Told me to take Claritin and gave me a...

    [TKR] Now two years post op and still recovering from nerve damage

    It is good to know that eventually all will be good with my right knee that was done 2 years ago. It still gives me trouble, and especially with my left knee being only 7 weeks out. It does seem like sometimes the left knee is doing better than the right. My poor right knee has to deal with...

    [TKR] Left One Done 7/31/14

    Saw my OS today. He is really pleased with my progress. Here I am almost 7 weeks out and doing good. Using the cane all over but sometimes I forget and find myself walking all around the house:) Got my rom to 92 on Monday. Still have an issue with the bike. I can't seem to go all the way...

    [TKR] Left One Done 7/31/14

    Well, I made it through the left one:) Seem to be doing better than the right one. Maybe I knew what to expect. I was in the Rehab facility for 3 weeks and have started Outpatient rehab. Had a couple of issues with the Therapist at the rehab fac. But we got it straightened out quick!!:yes...

    Rash is long gone:) Asked OS about ligament pain and was prescribed a cream to apply. It is a compound and has a pain reliever and muscle relaxer. It seems to work well. Getting all set up for Left TKR in four days.

    Second TKR Left scheduled

    I really wish I knew about this forum before I had my r knee done. I would not have allowed the PT to bend my knee until I almost screamed. He only did it once and then he decided it was not right. I can assure you that if I get the same PT person this time, he WILL NOT be doing that!! In...
