Hope someone has some suggestions for me. Had a TKR on Thursday June 6. One thing I was not prepared for is I can’t get comfortable in a chair. I have a sofa with an ottoman and get home from hospital and sat in that chair for a bit and it made my lower back hurt. So went back to bed and back got better - then tried a different chair and same problem. Changed chairs to eat dinner at the dining table and did a bit better (though my leg is down for the meal). Just need to know if anyone else has had this issue and if I should buy a recliner. I have tried putting a lot of pillows behind my back when on the sofa but so far does not really help. I have had back surgery and I know that the back pain is from sitting “wrong” without the right support. I have a “flex” bed so can get comfortable there. Just scared if my back goes out completely that will put me way back. I did a LOT getting ready for the procedure (22 years ago my Dad died after TKR). Bought the ice packs, borrowed a therapy ice machine, got the shower chair, removed the rugs, got a knee buddy pillow, moved a computer and set up so I could work out of my house for a while, bought a recumbent stationary bike, etc. Even did one session with therapist before surgery to make sure I was on track and doing everything I could for a positive outcome. Had three months to prepare as I had an injection and had to wait three months for surgery. My knee after the injection was not really painful at all so I did all the exercises and was even biking 6 miles per day. If anyone can give me suggestions. Just want to be able to concentrate on the knee and not worry about the back.
