      Hi again Joan, I'm sure that while you've been reading thru the various comments on this forum, one you'll come across regularly is that everyone recovers at a different rate be it after TKR or THR, I had my 1st TKR in March 2010 & it was 16 months before I returned to full time work, but then when I read some of the comments on here I'm amazed at how some folk seem 2 recover in such a short space of time? I'm 6 days post op after a left THR & things seem 2 be going really well so far, apart from not being able to sleep at all, just hope it carries on the same way it's started out as I'm due back in within 3 months 2 have the right hip done? Fingers x'd all goes well 4 u, I'm sure it will, keep us posted ☺

      Thanks Tom. Its good to talk on here and get other peoples views. You feel as if your on your own when you leave hospital and wonder if you are the only one feeling this. So glad when I found this forum and realised we are all going through similar. People tell me I am doing really well but some days I just dont want to do anything. I then come on here and am immediatly cheered by other peoples comments and this I think spurs you on.

    I am 13 months past TKR, and cannot quite straighten and still have a lot of pain. Also had PVNS which is the main problem I guess. Despite this I have started playing tennis again.  Be patient. time will heal all!!
