6 months after revision TKR - climbed Glastonbury Tor!

Posted , 5 users are following.

I finally made it to the top of Glastonbury Tor, last Thursday, on the Queens 90th birthday! - did about 6 miles in total, both uphill & downhill. The next day the knee was stiff, but not swollen or painful.

So - I am taking a break now from the forum. I have found in so helpful & a real help through my journey of the primary TKR, the year of pain waiting for the misaligned, mechanically loose prosthesis to be taken out & replaced, - the revision one year to the day last October, & then the slow recovery.

I'm now 6 months post revision,  & feel if I am to move on, I need to try & think of other things (happier ones!!). I feel as if I know so many of you, & really, really appreciate all the contact in those dark months. I hope we all get there in the end! I'm still battling with stiffness, but not pain, so I can cope - & if it takes 2 years, then so be it, but like someone else said on this forum, the left knee will have to be hanging off it's hinges before anyone can get near it!!

Good luck to you all - Veronica

    Good luck for the future Victoria and so happy that you're now ready to move on👍😄 I've just had my other knee replaced & swore I'd never go there again but it's done now (op 18/4/16) & I so hope that it mends well & that they don't wear out as I've sworn that I'll never have any revisions done!

    Take care and happy pain free walking!

      Good luck with the recovery of Knee number 2!! To be honest, my revision was the begining of the end of a year of hell! I wouldn't be scared for a revision now!
