    I was actually able to aim and shoot with my left knee! LTKR Dec. 17, 2012; RTKR 48 days earlier on Oct. 30, 2012. What surprises me most is how little bruising or relative swelling this time! Day 2/49 on the top and Day 4/51 on the bottom (if this works!!)

    My partial knee replacement taken four days out. Surgery was 12/11 and pic was taken 12/15. I feel so lucky that I had a surgeon that used glue instead of staples.

    TKR on my right knee two weeks ago today. It's very swollen - enough that the skin sometimes hurts. Ice and elevation work some, but as soon as I get up and move around, the swelling comes right back.
