Hi. I have noticed that my good knee is reacting to the strain and I'mfeeling a bit of sharpness in the joint. My right KR is going pretty well..maybe I'll have to use my stick more. I've been tending to get around without it..Might be putting too much pressure on good knee...any other suggestions? I'm taking Krill oil and MGnesium and Zinc supplements...good diet..water etc.m.
Any suggestions? I see my surgeon tomorrow for post op check up and will tell him.

Hi @Lily2450 I had my left one done on May 5th. My right one is being done on July 3rd. I notice that my right one is hurting a lot more. Likely because I am putting more pressure on it. Maybe you should stick to using a cane so you don't put too much pressure on the good knee. Best to speak to your surgeon. Good Luck!
