I'm nearly 14 months post op TKR on right knee. Nightmare of a year. Trying hard to get back to some semblance of normality. The whole experience knocked the stuffing out of me as they say.
My balance borders on appearing drunk one day to a little bit of normal gait another day. Also the pain has returned of a nighttime so I'm getting no proper sleep.
I must naive but I really thought I would start recovering after six weeks and not keep going back and forwards all the time.
I'm beginning to wonder if I've been given a really cheap bog standard prosthetic knee which will never replace my own
Would like to see one of these knees and hold it to feel the weight.
Some days it feels like I've got a piece of lead in my leg.
When I saw the surgeon for the last time he he said I had muscle wastage and said hydrotherapy would help.
Anyway today I had my first hydrotherapy session for half an hour - does it to any good?
A word of advice - don't think you're getting the best when you go NHS in a private hospital - you're not!!
I wish now I'd gone the traditional NHS route and gone to to my local Orthopedic hospital
