I had my first TKR at 47, 4 years ago and it was pretty rough even though I was well-prepared (thanks to this forum) back then. The main issues were severe pain post-surgery and continued pain and inflammation to this day. I'd love to hear from you if you are in the same boat. I'm hoping the second one won't be a repeat of the first. Anyone know of people who had a significantly better experience/outcome the second time?
