Recently passed the 9 months TKR marker. To date, all has gone smoothly without any regrets about the surgery. Issues encountered at this point: have minor difficulty ascending and decending stairs, especially several consecutive flights; minor difficulty standing-up using the surgurical leg only from a kneeling position, loud popping noise, no pain; feel pressure on the knee when kneeling, but no pain; minor stiffness after a long period (a hour+) driving or sitting; continue using ice due to occassional minor swelling after strenous activities such as a hour of stationary biking or treadmill walking with 4% or 5% elevation. Other activities such as upper and lower body weight lifting and swiming have increased cardio endurance and strenghten legs. At 68 yo and retired, I am blessed to have a pain free and mobile life again. Best regards and the Lord's blessing to all fellow knee replacement graduates.
