    That is WONDERFUL that you have managed to SLEEP! Often that is one of the hardest things to accomplish following this surgery. (It took me nine weeks before I slept five hours in a row, and nearly six MONTHS before I could sleep five or six hours on a regular basis.)

    You are well on your way to a great recovery!😁

    Hi Hilary - so glad it is "done" & you can look forward to a "normal" knee life!

    Like you, I think the amount of revisions seem to be on the up - I'd like to know if it's because of a bad prosthesis, or bad surgery??

    I'm now 7 months post revision. We went to the theatre last night. The show was 2 hrs & 40 mins (Mad about the Musicals & was brilliant). I sat in a normal seat (I've had usherettes seats in that painful 1st year!) in the middle of the row, with my knees normally bent, & apart from stiffness on getting up - felt fine.  I really feel that each month the knee is performing how it should, & that at the end of the 1st full year, it will be fine.

    However - I am still holding on the the other flipping knee!
