I had my TKR May 19 on my left knee. This forum is so helpful. Lets me know to not expect complete recovery after 5 days. I had in my mind that I was tough enough to be almost well by now. Have learned that I was very wrong. Trying to back off and slow it down now by elevating and icing it. I need to get this swelling down so I can do my therapy. It feels like I have a giant rubber band around my knee right now. Encouraging to know that it will improve over the next 10 days and that I am not alone.
