Left Knee: done 7/15/19 Right knee: done 8/7/19 Age 59, arthritic and bone on bone in both knees 6'2", 205lbs Left knee was a walk in the park. Very quick recovery. Walked out of the hospital on day of surgery. Did not need assistance the next day....no walker, cane, etc. Not much need for pain meds. I took a couple oxcycotins is all. As of today, I'm 4 weeks out and not even thinking about it. Great mobility and no swelling. At the two week point, I meet with surgeon and she agreed to do the other knee as soon as I was ready. I was ready. Note about Surgeon: Dr Christina Khoury, MD, miracle worker. Every in-home therapist I've talked to, said her patients recover very quickly with minimal scaring. So glad I ran into this surgeon. Such a mess shoot, especially when you're new to an area. I moved to Phoenix from Detroit back in January. Everyone is shocked by my recovery thus far. It is by far, not normal and is the exception not the rule. Right knee was another story. I was three weeks into the first knee recovery and had the right knee done. I walked on it same day, with a walker, and left the hospital the same day. The next few days was filled with pain, swelling, and stiffness. Much different than the Left knee. Note: One thing, I realized I didn't even think about the left knee after the right was done. It became my good leg...thankfully. I get a spike of pain every now and then but thats it. Took pain meds religiously for for first 5 days. As of today, I'm on Tylenol and aspirin and it seems to manage the pain well with ice and elevation. I have to keep an eye on my BP. It gets low in the morning and causes dizziness. Eating typically brings it up again. I went out today (8/15) to a birthday party. I'm at the one week point with the right knee. Its doing better. Not much pain. Its can be very stiff but I'm able to stretch and get good flexibility with it. I traded my walker for a cane. It a lot more work with the cane but less hassle. I'm still not comfortable with putting full weight on the knee for very long. Jury is still out on weather I will return to the walker. I'm very fatigued. My stamina is no where to be found. I just want to nap 24/7. I play guitar, and just strumming a few chords make my arms feel like lead. I'm expecting this to be my struggle for the next few months. Stamina. I read this is normal. Other notes: I've lost about 10lbs as my appetite is waning. but thats a good thing. I needed to lose about 20. I have no desire for sex. Just the thought of rolling around of the bed doesn't appeal to me. My libido is at a all time low. Hopefully that will change. I will post my progress daily going forward for others to glean info.
