This may seem odd coming from me I have been thru a lot of what most of your are experiencing with a TKR. I can suggest many different things from what to expect after the OR till you leave the hospital, what to expect from when you get home I know you will have at home care to monitor blood and at home PT. I understand how after 2 months you get so frustrated it drives you nuts and even after 6months and further down the road I get it. I have been thru it I know first hand it really sucks. I try and offer help since I have been thru this too many times but I am not perfect. Some of you get depressed after less then a year or maybe farther down the road Well here I am I think it flat out sucks that I have had all these knee surgeries I hate it when my knee hurts its one thing if you have never been thru this but how do I ask for help when I am flat out miserable. I have had a bad weekend today my pain is pushing the 7 mark on the 1 to 10 scale for pain. Who is going to say something that I have not tried . If I thought goiung to the ER would help I would be on my way but having done that in the past its pointless having a knee problem is not rated very high as far as priorities go. I hope no one has to go thru what I am dealing with I really hate it.
Sorry for the rant in case your bored and you read this, I am very frustrated.
