Wow, time sure does fly by. It's been three months since my right knee was replaced with a titanium joint, and I'm here to say I'm doing really well. So well that that knee is doing better than the other one now. I'm feeling so much better about the whole process, now that I've been through it once, that I've gone ahead and scheduled the other knee for August 3rd. I'll be an August Hot Shot. So that's five months in between the two surgeries. Kind of an overview recap: Was in the hospital three days after the first one. A major issue was very low blood pressure, so they kept me in bed the first 24 hrs rather than risk a fall. Went straight home from the hospital, not to rehab, and I had a family member who is a nurse helping me/us out for the first week or so. Was very grateful for her presence and help. Had 3x/wk in-home PT my first two weeks post-op, then took a week off for more healing, while I was still on the heavy duty pain meds (norco and tramadol), before starting outpatient PT. By the time I started that, I was driving again. That PT was hard and painful at first -- I considered quitting it -- but I backed off the intensity and took it easier, then stuck it out. Did outpatient PT 2x/wk for six weeks. And gradually began walking more and more, too. By approx two months out, I was back in the pool for water aerobics classes and walking farther, too. Now I go for long walks nearly every day, driven by my FitBit to keep my step count up and to augment my weight loss efforts (which I'm doing via Bright Line Eating). On Thursday I got myself a set of trekking poles, so I can walk greater distances without as much fear of falling. My right knee is doing great now that it's "fixed," but the left one often feels like it wants to collapse under me. I started the weight loss with BLE last October, in part because I knew the TKR surgeries were coming up, and have released a little over 30 pounds so far during that time (70 pounds down from lifetime high). I figure I have about 20 more to go, although I'm not quite sure what's my final goal range to maintain for good. So far I'm down four sizes! My knees are happier to carry less of a load, for sure. I still take Aleve morning and bedtime, and I sometimes ice and elevate, especially if it's been an unusual number of steps that day or I've been more active than usual. I see another thread on the forum about wedges; let me just say here how much I love my Lounge Doctor. I have the idea that I may still be using that baby for years to come -- it feels good to get my legs up when I'm reading or watching TV. I'm really grateful for this forum. I've learned a lot from all of you. Many thanks.
