I am now 12wks post op tkr . Recently I put a post up saying I may need a mau however I am more confused now and just do not know what to do next. My op was under private health insurance and I feel that the decision is mine as to what happens next. Already discharged by consultant. My Physio is saying my function level is not where it should be but it's ok, however is ok good enough at 53 years old. When I read about mau it concerns me and I change my mind. Since week 10 my mobility etc has deteriorated bend is 105 straightening is -10. I feel I am walking with a limp and straight leg. When I am out and walking is difficult I decide yes def going for op and then I re think and worry will I go further back on recovery. I may have osteoporosis and due to have scan on 8th and I have read that there is an increased risk with mau if u have osteoporosis. I had stopped taking pain relief but back on co codamol twice daily.
Has anyone else been in this position and had mau that was successful
what a difficult journey tkr is 😩
