    Hi all,
    After a rough start with hives and allergic reactions, I am doing better. My ROM is 90 and I am able to go straight out with the knee. I have a question....is it normal to feel as stiff as a board across the knee and above? I feel like I am dragging a dead log around. I also feel a click when I walk. Yesterday I think I overdid my exercises and I was very sore and had trouble sleeping. I see the PT twice a week. I am taking tramadol once or twice a day.

    I have brought forward this month's list so that you can easily see who your surgical buddies are.


    Welcome to our latest and all October Feisties!

    [​IMG]
    You are now an Honor Graduate [​IMG] from your pre-op days! You've entered the recovery phase of your replacement journey to that place called “Normal”, and you are now eligible to be a [​IMG] Recovery Club member.

    Pre-op surgery team members are automatically recovery team members. If you were not on the pre-op list, please join your fellow travelers in this month’s post-op club by requesting your name and surgery date be added to the roster.

    Being a team member will allow you to share your [​IMG] questions, concerns, and experiences; give one another [​IMG] support and encouragement; [​IMG] vent, whine, and [​IMG] shed some tears, if necessary; and have some [​IMG] fun and laughs together. (Please do the above in one another’s recovery threads. And if you find your fun and laughs taking over an individual thread, toss them over to the Social Room to keep your recovery thread on target.)

    Recovery is a long journey [​IMG] made shorter and easier when made with [​IMG] fellow travelers. So, start you membership in this special club today by requesting that your name and surgery date be added to the list!

    Please add me. RTKR Oct 29. Also my LTKR was Jul 30 not 31 (guess pain meds were really good that day!)

    I am walking without walker, crutches or cane sine last week. Last week numbers on right were 0 and 110. Still have great deal of swelling on right and a little in left but all in all doing great.

    I have really appreciated reading through this forum and finding that I am not alone in some of the things that occur post op.
