    This is a different doctor than the first time and he is amazing! I hear what you are saying but am conflicted.....no wonder they call it the “practice of medicine!”

    Revision TKR Tibia break after knee revision

    I am 23 days post surgery. I can get around the house (slowly and uncomfortably) without crutches. I did my daily outside walk with only one crutch but felt my form suffered. How long should I be on crutches?

    I am a very positive and optimistic person but this journey is seriously testing both of these qualities. Long story (not sure how to make it short) 3-wheeler accident when I was 20 years old resulted in serious infection and 2 surgeries at the time. One to repair the compound fracture...
