Hi TKR people! So, I was quite surprised by the amount of pain post-op. I also was not as "twilight" state as hoped and heard the banging and sawing. Carpentry on my leg.Anyhow the drugs made me feel awful and the pain was quite intense for the first few weeks. Now I am back in my own home (used a Retirement home for few weeks) and just finished the 12 allowed physio appointments at the hospital. I have 0/115 ROM and really want more - I grew up hyper-extended and had incredible flexibility. I am finding that I am stiffer this week than last..walking a bit peg-legged and achy too. Pain at night still wakes me but better. I use Tylenol and Curcumin but really don't want the other drugs - they make me feel sick.I think I need more guidance on exercises and probably need a gym - not just my stretching and quad/hamstring stuff. My other knee is NG - but the thought of going through that pain and the post-op crazies is very daunting. I am open to advice and hope I will be brave enough next year to do the other one. Now how do I increase my ROM!!!
