Hello All, 

I had a tkr about 3weeks ago and I’m having problems sleeping. I’m waking up every two hrs and my knee feels stuff every time I wake up. Can anyone give me any advice on getting a good night sleep?

    I am SIX months post up and occasionally wake up the same way. Knee is always stiff till I am out of bed. Don’t mean to be a downer, it does get better. But three weeks is like you’re a baby.

    Just read, do a puzzle or take a pill whatever is your thing. Read the posts on here, the people are terrific, they have helped me through many a sleepless night. Good luck and don’t expect too much do at least another couple of weeks.
