First TKR in Febuary this year. All good until beginning of September when I had inflammation in knee. Xrays showed the replacement still very good but swelling around it caused by inflammation all good now.
when seeing G. P. she checked other leg that I thought was playing up due to walking differently, No it is now bone on bone the knee cap is also bone on bone the same as my replaced one was. So saw consultant Friday at one pm. Said yes needs doing. Next day postman bought letter with my date 6 th November not bad three weeks.
Madly Christmas shopping, carpet shopping, trying to organise Who will do Christmas as all were coming to us, and remembering what I could do same time with first one know will not do Christmas.
Also have a cruise booked for 2nd January 2016 will be 7 weeks post op so think it will be ok as not planning to do to much anyway.
Now madly doing all pre op exercises etc. not what I wanted but am glad I didn't have to wait months.
So in two weeks I will be in absolute agony thinking why did I do it?. But will also know that time goes quick and will soon be all behind me. See pantomimes have started.
