Greetings to those who have had and are yet to experience, the rawness of knee replacement surgery.
I saw my surgeon yesterday for my (nearly) 12 month follow up visit. I was asked how I rated my outcome from bilateral total knee replacements on March 21, 2016. I said "left knee 100/100..right knee 60/100. He said "well that's an average of 80% so that's not bad". "Well" I stated, "I am unhappy with the pain in my right knee and I want a solution". He gave me one. Cortisone injections with a risk of infection. "No siree" I said. Thanks but NO THANKS. So I went to a Physio today. He put the TENS machine on my leg and did some massage and now I am walking pain free.
I will try and do whatever I have to to get an optimum result for myself.
Never, ever give up! Kick or be kicked! Do not stop searching for a pain free outcome. I will not stop expecting the best for myself.
Thank you to all those here who have given me such great input. I am hopeful that in 6 months I will be able to walk without feeling pain and feeling weird. Balance is still an issue for me but the pain is diminishing daily.
Have hope. Do the work, exercise. Have faith.
Hugs and love from the Land of Oz.
