Hello to the TKR community! I am so glad I found you as I need some confirmation and reinforcement for this Recovery process. I had my Right knee total replacement 10 days ago, and seem to be having some struggles. The first is that I haven’t done well with pain meds. The nausea and craziness were really bringing me down and at this point I’m on a combination of Advil and Tylenol rotating through the day. Needless to say, the pain is still very much a factor. I’m also feeling really wiped out, and sometimes feverish and overall yucky although when I take my temp my fever is actually normal. My range of motion is not bad, probably 90° at this point, so I’m not concerned about that. But I almost feel worse today than I did the last two days. Is it normal to be up and down like this? I worry about infection, even tho the scar looks ok. I guess I just need to hear that I’m where I should be at this point, and any tips you have for getting through as the days and nights seem very very long!
