    Hi,New to this forum. Had for right knee last Thursday. Managed to get 91% bend on the Sunday,today struggling with bruised thigh behind knee and calf. Had to change prescription due to needing medication during the night to get sleep. Came home Monday after 5 days. Had left knee done 8years ago had 6 months of agony trying to get the bend but managed it. Exercise bike helped. This time open was different,same surgeon and feel much better already but trying to rush things so have to slow down. Dressing will get changed to-morrow and clips out next week. Been up and down stairs to many times to count as only bathroom is there. I am just 75 so hopefully this will now improve my standard of life.
