    I had my TKR 13 years ago and am going to have a pad replacement done. Anyone know the average recovery time after pad replacement.

    Thanks and have a Wonderful Day

    Hello @rajincajun - and :welome:

    Please will you tell us the date of your knee replacement, which knee it is, and the date of your spacer replacement, so we can make a signature for you? Thank you.:flwrysmile:

    I think you mean that you are going to have the plastic spacer renewed between the metal components of your knee replacement. Is that correct?

    If so, your recovery will be similar to your initial recovery, although you may progress slightly faster.

    I'm going to move your thread to the pre-op area, since you haven't yet had this surgery.
