Bilateral is hugely inconvenient at first (talk about chairs being hard to get out of, or not being able to stand in the shower for a few weeks) but once we’re over the hump things really even out. I mean as compared with having a single TKR. Once we’re walking, we get up to speed just as quickly. It’s a great feeling the day you can get into and out of the tub shower without help. Lifting the leg, dragging the foot (not always painlessly) over the tub edge... repeat with other leg. The day that becomes easy and the foot goes easily over is worthy of celebration!
