Hello all - I've followed loads of you with your progress, & whilst mine has been slower (Right TKR on 28th October) - I was slowly getting there. Last week at Physio, I reached a 95 degree bend, could walk upstairs albeit clinging on the the LHS rail, cannot walk downstairs, started driving our automatic car 2 weeks ago (but I'm the first to admit my confidence is not back to the old me) - walk with a limp, but felt slowly & surely I was getting there. Over the weekend, we had our 4 & 6 year old Grandchildren to stay - I went up our 3 flights of stairs (slowly) at least a dozen times - actually showed them all the excercices as they too have followed this op. - nothing too much out of the ordinary, but yesterday was a painful day from hell. The knee feels as if it is in a brace - I can actually feel & hear a clicking noise now, which I hate, & my limp is more pronounced. What the heck happened? I had stopped all meds on the previous Friday, apart from bedtime ones, as I still find sleeping hard, but today have decided I must need them still, so have ordered a further prescription. I'm 14 weeks for goodness sake - a quarter of a precious year feeling dreadful - am I alone in going backwards?
