Hi all. This is my first post and I am really looking forward to hearing from anyone about their experience with their patellofemoral replacement. I had 2 patellofemoral replacements barely one year apart. First surgery was January 2020 on my left knee, and the second surgery was December 2020 on my right knee. My question is about recovery and getting back to 'normal' activities such as walking up and down stairs, hiking, and standing up from a sitting position without pain. I still experience about a level 4 out of 10 when I have to do this. I am now walking about 1 1/2 km a day, with about a level 2-3 out of 10 pain, and although I am definitely not experiencing the level of pain I had prior to surgery, I am disappointed with the extremely slow pace of my recovery, especially of my first surgery. Anybody have any words of wisdom? I am 64, and although never an athlete, I was always active...swimming, walking for an hour every day, cross country skiing in the winter, biking occasionally etc. etc. This has made me feel old beyond my years and I am truly hoping to become more mobile. I thank you in advance for anything you might be able to share.
