As with most of us here I have no previous experience of having a TKR. I don't honestly know if I am doing well or badly. It is exactly two weeks since my procedure and can get upstairs without support, carefully, and have about 80/85% bend in my knee. I can sleep for about 8 hours before pain, not extreme, wakes me and I have to get up. I can walk around my smallish garden several times with crutches quite comfortably. My knee is about 25% bigger due to swelling than my other knee and does feel fairly weak at the moment. Is all this normal, am I doing well or badly ? I only ask as I have no idea if my recovery is going well or not. Thank you to all who contribute, to my question or others. Together we are better informed and stronger with the support of each other.
