    TKR LTKR - My First Ever!

    Question about the video in the house, wasn't the left knee replaced? Why is the compression sleeve on the right? Ken

    Revision TKR Symptoms for 2nd Opinion - Don't Delay

    Sorry to hear this! Definitely an argument for choosing a qualified surgeon that you trust and has a good track record. Ken

    PKR 4 hour ice pack myth

    Well, felt good enough to run after 2 months and a couple days so I'm back to playing pickleball. And I can surely say I'm better now than I was pre-op. Couldn't run then, the knee would occasionally buckle on me. So hopefully this this it for awhile, back to normal. Thanks to everyone for their...

    PKR 4 hour ice pack myth

    I was in a rush to come back after my 1st meniscectomy but not now. The recovery article on this website indicates coming back to normal activities after anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

    @Rockgirl4, so close to 4 months and then coming back to a sport with some contact. Do you know how he's doing now?

    PKR 4 hour ice pack myth

    Wow, so at months 4 and 5 you wound up overworking the knee? I was thinking of resuming almost everything at the 2 month mark and not looking back. Maybe not, that's in 9 days and I don't feel like I could do any running now.

    PKR 4 hour ice pack myth

    Just downloaded the Goniometer Pro by June Gaming. This is the same jinfra app that people here were talking about awhile ago, actually years ago ⏰, it has a jinfra.com email address. Looks reasonable, probably overestimates a litle. It measured me at 126. I'm definitely interested to see what...

    PKR 4 hour ice pack myth

    "Graduated" from outpatient physical therapy today. Final flexion measurement of 122. Not as good extension, it's 5 or 6 degrees. Of course she could push the knee down to 0, but not sure what that means, and it didn't feel very good . So 7 weeks out I'd say I felt as "good" as I did pre-op...

    Bilateral TKR BTKR 28th May 2019 - post op journal

    Even after a partial one thing I would recommend anyone undergoing this procedure is have a strong core and back. If possible, a good regimen of pilates ahead of time. No doubt I've been compensating with the back taking up slack for the limited use of that knee.

    https://bonesmart.org/forum/threads/energy-drain-for-tkrs.11953/ I don't think I've linked properly to the Energy Drain for TKR article. It's real. I got on a scale 6 weeks after surgery and much to my surprise found I lost around 6 lbs. It's not like I've been doing a lot of exercise in the...

    Bilateral TKR BTKR 28th May 2019 - post op journal

    Nice pic indeed. My wife took/is taking good care of me too. Probably the biggest thing she does is fill that continuous cooling machine with ice for me. That of course involves buying and carrying big bags of ice, breaking them apart and sticking in coolers, dragging the coolers and machine to...

    Bilateral TKR BTKR 28th May 2019 - post op journal

    BTKR seems barbaric but I guess it's only once.

    PKR 4 hour ice pack myth

    Today is 6 weeks post-op. You know what that means? Hot tub time! Also, got measured with 117 degrees flexion and 6 on extension, 3/4 if pressure applied. I didn't work too hard to get to these numbers but the therapist did yesterday in our preparation. Will be interesting to see if those...

    PKR 4 hour ice pack myth

    Actually, a little ice and a lot of heat has the back feeling OK now. That's pretty much my history, the back issue resolves quickly. Thank goodness!

    PKR 4 hour ice pack myth

    Exactly a month today, yay! Except when I woke up this morning my lower back spasmed so now have a compression wrap around THAT. Not unexpected since I've been over compensating with other muscles since day 1 of the PKR. So I'll throw my outpatient PT person a curveball today and possibly ask...

    TKR TrueNorth’s new knee!

    I like the cold on my knee so want only something thin between me and the ice bladder. I use the extra long compression sleeve issued to me in the hospital.

    TKR Effusion after tkr

    Same as several others here, can get a quick pain at night when turning the knee the wrong way.
