    TKR Susie-Qs recovery thread

    Well, here I am on the other side of it. Finally got home around 7ish (pm). Doing fine so far after a couple of bumps in the road. The spinal took longer to wear off (they say 30 min to 2 hours, I was at least two hours) then the nerve catheter must have shifted after they put it in because...

    TKR SusieQs Pre-op, Qs about outpatient surgery!

    Hi all. I had my Pre-Op Appointment today and CT scan of the left knee. My surgery is scheduled for Aug 30th. My first knee, done 11 years ago, I stayed 2 nights in the hospital. I was hoping to spend one night this time because coming home the same day scares me a bit. My BIL had his knee...

    TKR Walking the dog

    Ok, all you pet-owners, specifically large dogs. I have an 18 month old English Lab who is very active. (my picture is her at 7 months) I walk her at least once a day (I can only manage about 3/4 of a mile now with my bad knee) or sometimes I take her up to the fenced-in soccer field half a...

    TKR Pedal Exerciser

    Hi! :wave: My story might be a little unusual. It begins 10 years ago (in 2010) at the age of 43. I had my first TKR (right knee) done after suffering for a few years from osteoarthritis. My doc was a leader in the field and came highly recommended. (Pierce Scranton) He didn't balk at my age...

    TKR Nerve Regeneration - There is hope!

    I haven't posted here in while, so long that it took me a bit to remember my user name and password! I had my right knee replaced 5 years ago in 2010. The nerve bundle that goes across the kneecap was cut with the incision and my knee has been slightly numb for a few years, it would feel like...

    Time between first knee trouble to the second?

    I'm sorry if this has been posted about before. I tried a search for it but ended up with a list a mile long regarding other topics. I'm curious to ask those who have had one TKR, how soon before you started having troubles with the other knee? I had my right knee scoped 4 years ago, which...

    TKR Nerve question for the BoneSmart Kings/Queens

    Some of you long-timers may remember me. I had my TKR done June of 2010, right knee. I've been doing great, have lost 50 lbs (with more to go) and I walk every day. Love my new knee, it's better than the other one which used to be my good one! :thumb: I had a question about the nerve that...

    11 months later..........

    Hi! I haven't been here for awhile now mostly because life is so busy and my knee has been doing so well that there was no need for me to come here and complain! :wink1: I wanted to let those that are in the throes of recovery that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, you will get...

    Question about oral health and antibiotics

    Ok, so I know we are supposed to take antibiotics for at least a couple of years after having a knee replacement because of the bacteria in our mouths and the susceptibility of bleeding during dental cleanings, transferring that bacteria into our bloodstream..... What about when we floss? I've...

    Camping!!

    Well, guys and gals, I think I'm ready! Sunday is the day. I will be 6 weeks post-op and we are going camping. I blew up the double-high air bed to make sure I can get up out of it without too much trouble (I can), I've got my instant ice packs, my reclining chair with sturdy arms, my...

    Sleep

    I hope it's ok to start a new thread on this topic. Why is it you can have nights where sleeping isn't so bad and other nights where it's terrible? I have not slept well since before surgery, I wake up at least once or twice a night and have to get up to go to the bathroom, get an ice pack...

    My experience......so far....

    Hi, my name is Susan. I can't believe I just found this forum and didn't even think to look for one until today. I went online to look up popping in a new knee joint and read a post that linked to this forum. I probably should back up a bit.... I started having trouble with my right knee 2-3...
