hi , I am new to this site. Was curious as how others haveinTKR are doing.
the pain after surgery was horrific. I had to stay in the hospital 5 days instead of the 3 they proposed. I did not want to go to aa rehab , so I forced myself to walk further and the morning that I conquered the stairs I went home.im very lucky to have my husband at home who has taken great care of me.
as for me; I am intent on doing my exercises , walking and icing.
the last 2 days are the first that I've been of of pain meds.
happy about that, but still taking some Advil.
oh, also, I have graduated from the walker to a crutch and now since yesterday a cane😆
I would love to join the discussion and hear how everyone else is doing!
