I am interested in hearing from those who have passed the 10 week post-op milestone. I am averaging 5,000 steps (used to average 10,000). I am sore/achey most days. I keep waiting to reach the magic moment when I say I'm glad I did the TKR. I know it's irrational, but I worry this is as good as it will get. I'm back to my job as an elementary school principal. My mind keeps going and there's a lot I want to do after work, but I pretty much just crash and burn. I know part of the problem is my other knee - it needs a TKR also. I just can't get in the frame of mind I need to go through this again. I have an appointment with my surgeon in 2 weeks. I believe he will be able to give me a cortisone injection in the unoperated knee. I'm hoping that will get me through the next few months and help me hold off surgery until October.
