Well, had my left TKR 6 days ago, gave up using the walker. It just got in my way. So far this recovery seems to be just as easy. My in home therapist came today and measured me at 96. So far i am only taking one pain pill at night to help me sleep! My therapist says my attitude has a lot to do with my recovery. I did my exercises before the surgery and do them several times a day as required. I may be retired, i don't have a job to go back to, but i refuse to let this get me down. I am convinced that i have an unusually high tolerance for pain and for that i am grateful. My doctor asked if i was going to have another 7 week recovery and i said maybe 6 1/2! It would be nice but I'm not holding my breath! My advice to everyone is to do what the doctor says and keep moving!
