Only two? Did you include all the other things I listed? Like soreness, burning, stabbing, throbbing, aching, swelling and stiffness?2. 2 but last night it woke me up, pain can be on the medial side.
Ibuprofen is actually a pretty poor pain med and has other unpleasant side effects as well3. No pain meds. 1 Aleve a day when I can not function
Hm well, that's pretty okayFlexion is 115, extension is good.
Can do but it depends upon what your experience is.4. No ice this far out. PT used to say ice stiffens things up.
"increased blood flow"? I don't think so!Swelling is an issue. Loud clunk with extension. Knee buckling is improved. Knee gets warm. Surgeon's nurse said it was increased blood flow.
You need to elevate more than once a day. What's the good of that? You to elevate for at least 40-60mins and more than 4 times a day.5.elevating at least x 1 x 45 mins
Okay6.doing all the household stuff but often ordering online instead of limping through a store. Walking the dog but I had to curtail with all the limping.
It'll be the components. Your nice soft cartilage has been replaced with metal and plastic so it's bound to make a noise now and again. Think of hitting a plastic spoon on a table top. I can still get a clunk on my right knee on demand!Is the clunk TKR components or something else such as scar tissue? What else do you do for swelling?
