Great news! You have worked so hard for that! Keep on working and pretty soon you'll be breaking 100!

Congrats to you! I'm now 8 wks post-op...PT measured me on Wed @ 115 degrees - what a shock! :) But today I felt like I was back at 90 degrees - so stiff and tight. Have been working out a lot tonight...maybe tomorrow will be better. 1 step forward, 2 steps back....seems like at times!

Continue to have a problem flattening the knee down (@-5 degrees) and PT said if I can get that lower it will help a lot with my gate (not smoothe) and going up and down steps (a biggie for me because I look a little like Quasimodo climbing the bell tower!) HELP!

I'm a few weeks ahead of you and I can tell an improvement, weekly, in my gait. Early in the day, you'd be hard pressed to tell that I had a TKR....by mid day, I have a slight limp....by evening, I draggin' that sucker behind me!!!

With both of my kids getting married this year, I've GOT to to do the "mother walk" smoothly!!!!!...hope I can talk them into having early morning weddings!!!!!!!!
