    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Thanks Celle. The ER doctor sent a message off to my OR doctor to let him know. I haven't done anything that would do this ... I have been driving again and walking more but that shouldn't be causing these symptoms. I have gone back to using my cane to aid the newer knee which was the worst...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    I am not sure what is going on but something is out of whack. I was in emerg today at the hospital and they have no answers for me and the blood tests show nothing so far, no sign of infection. The new left TKR knee has gotten very stiff and sore over the past two weeks and there is noticeable...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Thank you Celle and Karri. :smile2: I am taking it very easy today. Bloomin' hip is giving me grief (sciatic pain) and I am sleeping a lot. It's raining out non stop too so I think it is appropriate I get lots of sleep and rest up today anyhow as I am not missing much. *grins* Now that the...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Great! I am so glad to hear that! I did five weeks of pre-op exercises ... really only the one exercise but I did it every day with more reps than they asked and with weights on ... I think it may be one of the reasons I did so well. I was correct ... my OS wrote me off of physio today...

    I can do that. Thanks KarriB. By the way ... how are YOU doing? It has been a long while since we spoke.

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Thank you KarriB ... I am not actually squatting but I put my legs under me as far as I could to have the photo taken. *smiles* I was the same as you with my last knee ... hardly slept at all with the sore back but the lack of sleep was due to the pain. *ugh* I agree with you about the...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    I don’t share my info very often but thought I would today. This time around, since my surgery, I have been forced to sleep in my lazy boy because my heart beat would go too low (almost stopping) and my blood pressure would drop dangerously. I tried getting back into my bed on Friday night at 6...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    :wow: Wow oh wow ... no physio terrorist this time around and what a difference. I love my physio therapist that I got :smile2:... she thinks like I do and it is quality over quantity for exercises. My leg is coming along really nicely without too much pain and strain. I am happy to say I sit...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Thanks Susio461. If I never see a hospital again it will be too soon. Things are going slowly this right now but I am ok with it ... I am giving myself plenty of time to heal.

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    I am actually doing exactly what you said ... great minds think alike. :smile2: I have no intentions of going to see them until I want to which will be long after I am mobile and just to see how far I have moved ahead from my starting point. I did so well on my own last time and have actually...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Thank you Celle ... and he did indeed do this. If it should EVER happen again I will do exactly as you suggested to attract as much attention as I can. He refused to release my leg and kept hurting me despite my saying to stop. And they wonder why I hate going to physio .... grrrr.

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Reading #3 - It is really hard to get the physio therapist not to try and take over your body when you are at a disadvantage and in pain and they grab your leg and hold it hostage and do what the hell they want even with you telling them not to. "Don't touch it" and "don't do that" are totally...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Thank you so much! I had no idea how to change it. I love rereading the pointers you wrote ... they reaffirm all my own thoughts and that I am still doing things the right way for my body. :yes:

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    March 17, 2017 TKR Left knee. I am home from the hospital ... I am astounded at my progress. On day one I had an 80 degree bend, on day 2 it was 87. I haven't got as straight an extension yet ... it is at -7 right now but it will come. Yay!! Now they can leave me alone and I will do my own...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Thanks everyone! I am being careful not to overdo it ... the last thing I need is another set back. Surprisingly (and very happily) I can still bend my knee a lot more tonight and it isn't stiff, sore or hot and the pain meds ran out many hours ago (and I only used one ice pack). With how far...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    YAY!!! :yay: New measurements today ... -5 extension and 107 flexion ... I beat the 100 they said they didn't expect me to go past :yes!: AND we didn't measure the exercise she helped me with (we never do) but I know I got to at least 115 if not 120 or more because my leg came up under the table...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    Some things may be a bit slow and I have had set backs, but others are just zooming along. I have had another set back ... the exercise my male PT gave me using those wide elastic bands has pulled the tendons in the back of my surgery knee and I am not allowed to do any more of those exercises...

    Bilateral TKR tjcteacher's recovery thread<

    I hope you are continuing to do well. I had a heck of a time getting out of the bathtub with just one knee done! I won't be getting a bath again for a while until the knee bends more, but that's ok because I prefer showers. *winks* I had an Epsom soak bath and probably won't have another...

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    This is a comparison between my knee at one week, and ten weeks! The scar on the right side has actually almost completely disappeared for the last inch to the right of what you can see.

    TKR March 17 second TKR surgery

    My extension has been at 0 since the surgery and my female PT was telling me to get into the minus and was showing me exercises to do for that. Someone said they didn't think that was right and I agreed. I checked with my male PT and he disagrees (and I agree with him) ... he said if I go into...
