I couldn't put off My left knee TKR any longer. Right TKR was 6 years ago and is doing great. Dreading the recovery, but looking forward to being pain free!

@2boxers hi there. I am having my left knee done September 9, 2020. I am currently 11 weeks out from my right knee. Still struggling with a limp and slight loss of extension but I want to get it over with so when I'm fully recovered I'm done. I'm not excited either, but here we go. I look forward to journeying with you.

Hello and welcome. You will love having two good knees again and no pain. The best part is that recovery progresses and ends while living with a bad knee just keeps getting worse and more aggravating. All worth it to regain our lives and mobility.

I realize you have had this procedure before but I am going to include some information below in case you would like to review.

Regardless of where you are in the process, the website and app My Knee Guide can help you stay organized and informed.
