A bit discouraged, going on seven days since knee replacement, still not much sleep at night and not much activity during day. doing some stretches and walking with walker, but progress seems slow. The leg is three times larger than the other one and the compression socks feel like they are cutting off my circulation on swolleen leg. Wearing these a month, just trying to get by. 63 years old, had hip replaced, not bad, knee isnt going as smoothly, still other knee to go in three months. What helps you guys stay upbeat? I hate to rely so much on family. I need to stay busy with something. I dont think I am a whiner just not very patient with myself this time around. I read alot, tv is just there to keep company. Do you folks find it difficult a this stage to do any normal activities? Thanks all
