I had my TLKR surgery May 5th so I am just 2 weeks out, currently using a cane but walking without it in the house but I walk with a very stiff leg, my ROM isn't what I think it should be. I was off my pain meds 3 days after I got home because I was so nauseated and they were making me feel awful. Took Tylenol for the next week but have taken no pain meds for last 5 days because pain is manageable for me. Not able to lift heel to do leg lifts but can lift leg to get into bed with no issue. I really notice that my right knee is compensating for my stiff gait which isn't a good thing but I am already signed up to do that one next so praying it doesn't give up on me before that surgery is scheduled .... what is the best time frame to do the second knee I have heard 3 months ....
