I had my TKR done just one week ago, so I'm the ultimate newbie at all this. I had so many questions, then I found this forum. WOW! All the answers I was looking for... and even some answers that I didn't know I needed. confused 

I'll be hanging around in the days and weeks to come. Thanks!

      Hi Wendie,

       I agree with you regarding this forum, everyone is so caring and helpful.  I joined last August when I had my Ltkr and just 4 days ago had the Rtkr, so here I am again! Lol.  Learned a lot the first time around, but every knee is different so will have a different experience this time around...glad I don't have a third leg though!  You're right about not going anywhere for a while, but starting outpatient PT soon, so that will keep me busy.  Doing my daily walk around the house as there is still snow on the ground here in Michigan, catching up on emails, watching TV, and of course my exercises keeps me busy, but do love those naps!

      You hang in there, keep in touch with us and you'll be going out before you know it!

      Many blessings,

      Cherry🍒

    Head Down. Chin up. Knee bending. When you get there it is so worth it. Journey may be easy may be trying, maybe short term or maybe be a bit longer, but worth it. We'll be here for the lows.

    Take care,

    Alan

    Hi Alan

    Hope you are well. I’m off to see the GP. I need to sort my meds out. This nerve pain is getting worse so I will see what he says. I’ve even had a little cry but hey ho I’m only human. 

    Have a great day everyone 😊

      Famous author Norman Cousins "Anatomy of an Illness".  Diagnosed with an incurable something.  Locked himself in a hotel room for months with an 8mm projector (old days) and watched nothing but Marx Brothers, Laurel and Hardy, etc.  Left the room cured.  The power of laughter should never be underestimated.
