Posted , 7 users are following.

6 1/2 weeks post TKR right knee and 5 days post TKR in left knee. This are progressing well. I am learning a lot about patience. Everyday I feel my legs getting stronger and having less pain. I had two days of PT at home and tomorrow will resume outpatient PT. I Can't wait to have this all behind me. Thankful I have two legs and was able to have TKR.

    Great attitude Jen. It helps knowing what to expect and that there is light at the end of the tunnel. In a few weeks you'll be moving around and causing trouble. It does help to remember what you have to be thankful for. I appreciate that reminder.

    Hey!! You summed it up for me when you said you were thankful you had two legs and was able to have total knee replacement! Very powerful words for me! I'm having my operation on July 17 after having my hip replaced on April 5! I feel sorry for myself some days and I know I should be grateful!! I read posts and some words really stick to me. My other helpful phrase was to surrender yourself when you get to the hospital and leave dverything in their hands! Don't get me wrong now I learned from everybody's posts. It's just that some first right now hit me Right where I'm feeling! ?? Sorry for the rambling!!
