2nd partial knee replacement (right leg)

Posted , 6 users are following.

I am back on the forum nearly a year since my first left knee partial replacement, I had my right one done last Friday so are in the early stages of recovery.

Not feeling too bad at the moment night time being the worst with the leg in one place and when the pain killers wear off .As it is difficult to get any sleep.

A certain feeling of deja vu but it will be worth it in the end

Regards Rob

    WOW, I give you a lot of credit having a second TKR. I had my left knee done 6\2\15. The first 2 weeks were horrible but then things got better. I am back to doing everything I did before the replacement and am thankful for that. I do not think I would ever do it again though, haha Thankfully, my right knee is fine. Keep a positive attitude, be thankful and stay happy. Good luck to you

    Can you not take a top up like a liquid equivalent of your day meds.  Don't forget, during the day you take meds every 4 hours.  How many hours are you in bed; next morning is going to be a killer.  Good luck and keep your spirits raised

      I am managing to space the medication every 5 hrs which helps with the night time . last night was better so hopefully that is a good sign of getting past the worst.

      Thanks for your reply.

    Sounds like you're doing well Robert I had my second PKR done 7 weeks ago and it's only now feeling good. I can't climb stairs very well but apart from that I can do most things. Still painful especially at night and quite stiff like a tight band around my knee but even that is improving each week. Keep going, you know it will be great in the End!

      Thanks for the encouragement the first week after the op is the worst and certainly brings back memories of the first one a year ago.

      Hope to start the stationery exercise bike in a couple of weeks as that helped no end.
