    Sounds like you are keeping your spirits up. As many times as I have heard people say that after a partial they needed a TKR, I think the total is the way to go. Keep positive and keep us posted on how things proceed.

    I had a partial last summer, it's been a healing journey, but so far so good.   No pain, I'm back dancing and doing things I couldn't do because of pain before.  I will probably need a TKR someday, but I was happy to go with the partial.  Only posting to give the PKR some good words.  You sound like you've been through a lot.  Glad to hear it's coming better.

      I am not knocking anybody who has a partial. I wanted to partial because it was shorter recovery time. But just one day I woke up. And it started popping locking and when I would walk it through me forward. I will get this awful pain in my knee And down my Shin. My ankle and well and the back of my leg would have been with pain down and on it. That is because the divorce was moving all over knee. But partial was good. Better healing smaller scar. But just things happen. But partial was way to go.
