I still have a weather knee with my tkr knee, but it's much better than it was in my early recovery. Yours will probably lesson, too, and maybe even go away. My old knee is an even better weather predictor, so I'm glad my new one is much less!Not walking so good today. I suspect it is because of a sharp drop in barometric pressure. Is this likely to be a permanent situation?
That is exactly what I realized was happening. My “good knee”, the repaired one, is being dragged down and held back by both a bad knee and a bad back. The back is a lifetime issue that has always been manageable by Chiropractic treatment, sometimes months or even years between treatments. But when both knees team up to make it impossible to walk normally, the almost immediate result is an imbalanced and strained situation for the back. I now realize that if I don’t get the other one done, I may as well not have had the first one done. I would be risking more and possibly unmanageable damage to my back.I didn’t want to wait and get to a point where my good knee started to suffer because it was compensating for my bad knee.
