24 Days post TKR

Posted , 5 users are following.

Just had my first Visit to Physio after 24 days Post op .

110 Rom but a 20 degree bend to go .I put this down to years of limping .

Physio reckons it will take about 3/4 months work before i can get complete straightness of the leg .

Anyway its all positive and the healing is going excellent .I have already chucked the crutches and gone onto walking stick only .

All i can say is keep at it stay positive .Things can only get better

    Wow Scotty that is brilliant, nice to hear a positive story on here for a change., I have not had my knee replaced as of yet, still holding on as I am under 60, although I am bone on bone and haven't been able to fully straighten my leg for some years, if i can keep moving and keep the pain under control, I can stave off the inevitable. had a steroid injection 6 weeks ago and it has improved pain immensely. Good luck for your continued recovery.
