Hi. I read many of the posts on this forum and it is great how people emphasise and support one another. I'm 9 weeks post TKR and feeling low. I don't think I've felt good since the operation. Some good days, better than others, and always feeling tired. I've spondylosis to content with too so I guess the double whammy of sore back and post-op knee is not good! I can walk OK with my knee, up to an hour, and have been driving for three weeks. My big issue is with bending. The knee is still very stiff and hard. I can't walk down stairs normally nor can I ride an exercise bike. Maybe that is no big deal but I'm only about 75% where I think I should be in terms of bending. I've tried weaning of Co-Codamol (nearly there) and that has been bad too, with flu symptoms appearing when I scale back too quickly. Sorry for the moans but feeling down and wondering whether things will ever be OK. Off to the pub later today to cheer myself up. At least I can sit at the bar!
