I am 8 weeks out of a total knee replacement on my right knee. My left knee was doing fine until this past week. I've always had a tad of arthritis in the good knee and it would make crunching sounds while going up the stairs but never really hurt.
I'm having trouble getting up the stairs one at a time because my operated knee is still very weak and the good knee has started getting sharp shooting pains.
Unfortunately I have formed adhesions in the operated knee which is not allowing me to get full flexion and I have to go in for manipulation this Tuesday. That is when they put you under anesthesia and the surgeon manually forces your knee to full flexion. After the procedure I will have more swelling, more pain, and more weakness in that knee which means even more stress on my good knee. I'm afraid I won't be able to use either knee to get around during my now extended recovery. Has anyone gone through this, or is currently going through this, that has advice on how to keep the good knee from falling apart.
