I guess she's living up to her name now!
That's right! Initially I had my left leg extended -- seemed to take forever to pull it back towards base of toilet. Just hurt too bad and when you gotta-go you don't need more hassle!It is exciting to do things that you haven't been able to do for months. Only a joint replacement recipient would understand...
Congratulations. So pleased all well.Biopsies from dermatologist were benign... YAY!
That is all really great news- hope things continue to improve.The last week has brought much improvement!
The pain, tightness, swelling is considerably less. Some days no tylenol, other days a dose or two. Driving can be uncomfortable. But, no lingering after effects. And sleep is back to normal.
That’s great news! So glad to hear that beachy! And so glad your husband is doing so well!Biopsies from dermatologist were benign... YAY!
I have learned so much reading your thread! If (when) I have to do this again (hopefully far, far in the future) I will be following your example.This has been a gentle, restful recovery. Thanks to following the Bonesmart way. And having had a prior tkr, knowing what is normal, and knowing this is a long recovery.
Rooting for the day when Pia is no longer the boss of you.We met friends at a brewery last nite and had a great time. The knee was fine. But, she was ready to go after 2 hrs.
You are doing great!believe I have found my knee comfort zone. The stationary bike. 10-14 days ago 5 min was not easy. Then I bumped it to 8. Then 10. Yesterday when the 10 min timer went off I set it for 5 more. Today I did 18.
That's impressive! Don't think I could manage 3 nights out/ week yet.....Went out socially 3x in the past week! In the evening. Which is a big deal after being mostly home since 1/11
