Hi. I had tkr on both my knees My right knee which was in awful is doing well, whereas my left knee is lagging behind. My PTs and my doctor say that it is normal. I don’t compare myself to others recuperating but it is frustrating when I can’t sleep in my bed (need to sleep in a recliner), my gait is off, and I walk very slowly. I’m lucky because I have no real pain, just a burning sensation, but still it can get me down. NO ONE told me it would be 6 months until I was somewhat better and a year until I would be me again. It’s been almost 3 months and I’m hoping that by the summer I’ll be able to get to the beach and enjoy my granddaughter. I am glad I did both at one time - not sure I’d want to go go through it a second time. Thanks everyone for sharing! Do your exercises!
