    Jo.....
    I have noticed a bit of clunking in my KR over the last 24 hrs..
    As my component is cementless..you don't think I am doing any damage?
    Probs not, but I would like a bit of reassurance.

    love and hugs Pat xx

    From what other peeps have said on here, it's pretty much par for the course. Or - as I once put it - just your leg and your prosthesis getting to know one another!

    Thanks for the advice Jo , I'm not as worried now,
    The new knee is improving daily, and so is my mood, it's great to slowly see your life coming back isn't it ?
    just the thought of being able to walk without those bloomin crutches soon, is a mood booster...it's so hard trying to juggle them with bags purses doors etc etc you need about 6 hands......shopping last christmas was a nightmare....it will be soooo much easier this year....
    life is looking good ..........unlike most folk on here as my injury was due to an accident, I was only in pain for 18 months, but the pain was HORRENDOUS.....having the surgery when I did has been the best thing for me.
    Ok time to go sit in the sun now and put my feet up
    Speak again soon
    Love and hugs Pat xx
