I am 5 weeks post op TKR. My doctor didn't prescribe physical therapy, simply sent me home with 6 exercises to do 3 times a day and I do them every day. My leg is still very stiff, I have only as much ROM as I did when I left the hospital. I feel like my doctor doesn't care. When I call the office with a question I am given the impression that I am "bothering them". My depression has spiraled out of control, I am angry all the time, sometimes hostile and lashing out. Then there is the crying. I cry all the time, every day. I don't have a support system, live in a remote area and am alone 95 percent of the day. Someone please tell me this Will get better, that I am not losing my mind. I simply want my life back.
