Good luck to you as well. The knee replacement surgery has a so complicated Recovery where some people recover quickly and some others last one to two years. I had a difficult time making the decision for going through he surgery, and thought about it for at least eight months, talk with different people who had the surgery, my PT, online chat with others, etc, I thought high level pain would last a few weeks, for me I had high level pain until 8-9 weeks post OP. I thought muscle weakness lasts for about six weeks, I had weak muscles in my legs until week 12-14, and still feel weak.I wanted to have minimal invasive surgery, and two weeks before my surgery date, I find out that he does not perform minimal invasive surgery.
I’ve been reading about your recovery. I had a PKR a month ago and now I realize there’s no such thing as a minimally invasive knee replacement. I thought I would recover faster with a partial but I seem to be struggling with the same obstacles as members with a TKR.
inthought I could resume normal activity by weeks 7-10, I still have not resumed my normal activities. I have retired two and half years ago, so I could wait for resuming my normal activities like traveling, camping, etc.
good luck to both of us, and everyone else.
