    I was also told not to kneel down which is very awkward sometimes. I'm 9 months tkr and so happy I had it done. I'm 49 so will probably need it doing again but hopefully not for a long time ??

    I got down on my knees once but found it very uncomfortable.

    PT said to use a cushion next time.

    Remember that kneeling down a lot will wear out the cartilage.

    Im 6 months in now but this I avoid at all cost, can do everything else, gym, swimming and a little tennis.

    Along with walking the dog.

    Best wishes 

    Sue

    I am two years bilateral knee replacements and can kneel! I started last March with a pillow and tried to knee for a few seconds. I have worked my way to longer time. When I pull weeds I use a pad to kneel on. Good luck and keep on being patient.

    I am having pre op assesment tomorrow for total knee replacement. My surgeon it is bone on bone in my right knee and I also have osteoarthritis in both knees and feet. He said it will take 6 months to recover.I am seeing him next week. I am very nervous about having operation as nobody on forum seems to have anything positive to say since having their operation. I would be very grateful for any positive replies. I live in Ireland. Many thanks.

      I thought I would never feel good again but I am so happy I had it done. I'm 9 months tkr still have a little stiffness and some scar tissue but it's worth it compared to the pain before. Make sure you exercise before the op so you have a bit of strength in it it will help. Keep up with the meds and exercises but don't push too hard. I did and it set me back a little. Good luck??
