I am 5 1/2 months on my tkr. I pretty much got my life back and that feels good.
?Like most people I still have my stiffness in mornings and sitting for a while. Also still get little swelling in right knee when I am on it for little while can go up and down stairs fairly easy.
I am curious on something? Has anyone been able to cross their legs? (Meaning in sitting down can anyone cross their operated leg to the other thigh) I can only get my foot to the other knee cap.
?I also want too encourage others in don't expect your recovery to be like others who had tkrs done. For example: I met a guy at the store about a week ago and he had his tkr done with in a week of mine. He was still using his walker to get around and can barely walk without it.
And I am in better shape in my recovery.
?My sister in law had both her knees done the last one about a month before mine.and she has no stiffness or pain. she latterly has her life back with no complications. wish i was that way sometimes.
?but everyone is different and don't let your recovery get you down.
