Well, its been 6 months now since my TKR and after visiting here regularly in the early days, and moaning and groaning ad nauseum, I thought it was time to pop by and say hi to you all ...
For those who are relatively new here, I suffered all the usual horrible post surgery symptoms that you would all have learnt is 'normal' ... for me the worst was the insomnia, non specific tears which flowed for no reason and depression, which I learnt was the result of stopping my pain relief meds.
So ... 6 months down, I need an xray, just to ensure that all the 'clicking' noise that I'm hearing from my knee, isn't actually wearing anything down or doing anything else sinister.
Oh! Last week, I slipped over and landed on my good knee, resulting in a bunch of stitches making it my now ... bad knee! But it was just bad luck, and loose gravel which caused it .. nothing to do with my new knee misbehaving.
I'm pretty much back to my old self, and you too can look forward to this if you're somewhere between surgery and 6 months. In fact, I've been pretty good with my knee for a few months now
Anyway, that's it for me, just wanted to offer you all some insight to how things do get better.
I know everyone says it ... but seriously folks - it does get better. Just hang in there and enjoy the support of others around here who will be your new best friends for many months to come.
