2 week anniversary of ConforMIS right TKR

Posted , 10 users are following.

Doing well 2 weeks post op. First 10 days were a challenge. Had to spend an extra night in the hospital to get my pain under control..No one prepared me for a 9 on a scale of 1-10. I was told there would be pain, but it would be handled.Im using walker, but can almost straighten my leg after only two PT sessions. I work hard on my exercises at home, but not to the point of tears. I have stopped oxycontin. I just take 5 mg of oxycodone twice a day,and Tylenol in between. I can take more, but haven't needed to.I hope things continue to go well as I am getting bored. I complain about the stiffness daily, but I just continue to ice and elevate. Good luck to all the ones still waiting!

    Hi Angel,

    We're neck and neck then! I had my op on 8th September too.

    I'm still really tired but exercising, icing, resting and doing the odd walkabout.

    It's surprising how you suddenly realise that you are actually improving day by day - but it's soo slow, isn't it!

    Physio going OK too.

    Hope things continue to go well for you! Keep up the good work!
