Hi I am 2 weeks post op from tkr. Had my first physio session yesterday. Told my bend is fine. But the big muscle above my knee is very very weak and on trying to do exercises that raise the leg the muscle shakes as under a lot of strain. So I've got to work on that. Bk with physio in 2 weeks. It's very hard to keep the momentum going. Not able to use a static pedal cycle yet as can't turn the pedals. But hopefully will come. Got 2 use 2 crutches as although knee itself feels quite good and stable. Due to muscle weakness sometime my leg gives way. Any tips or encouragement very welcome as live alone and it's hard not to let it get you down even if I think I'm doing quite well. Thanks everyone x
