8 months ago I had a TKR on my left leg it was so much harder then I ever imagined I was in Pt for six months 3x a week and had a problem with my bend after six months and much pain my bend went to 105 degrees. Came to Florida for a short stay and one month ago got into a bad car accident and crushed my right leg I broke my femur knee and tibia they did a external fixation then two
days later they went back in and cleaned up all the small broken bones that where to small to fix did a TKR and put rods and screws in the femur and tibia. I'm still using a walker the problem is much pain that is depressing and exhausting. because I live in New York my health insurance only covers emergencies when I'm out of state so that means the minute I walked out of the hospital the cost for anything is mine. Even though I was told the surgeon did the impossible I'm over 1 inche taller on the right leg which is causing me along with knee pain in both knees but also hip and back pain and everyone thinks I should be off the pain meds I'm taking which are running out and no one wants to refill.
