Hello everyone! I just had LTKR on September 13th. I thought I was prepared. I watched every YouTube video. I was blindsided by the severe exhaustion and overall sick feeling. I really thought I would have a better attitude, but I am losing patience with my husband and feeling sorry for myself. They have been sending a home physical therapist to my home. My first post op is Monday and I am afraid I will get admonished for not have 90 degree bend. I didn’t have great range of motion prior to surgery and my surgeon told me as he signed my knee that I will have to bend it even if it hurts. The pain meds made me feel awful so I am on advil and Tylenol. I forgot to say I am a 58 year old female. Other than being overweight, I am relatively healthy.
