I am three weeks out from TKR, let me tell ya, I've always considered myself a strong person. I raised my kids while working full time, went to college full-time at 40 while working full time. I Swim, bike, run. This pain from the TKR is kicking by butt. The pain is deep in my thigh bone and calf. My ankle is black and blue and I have a lot if swelling. I went to get a few groceries today, rode in the auto cart and was crying before I left. I was not expecting this much pain. I take a pain med every 4 hours and it just dulls it for a short time. I can flex to 90 and extent to 0. I haven't had a decent sleep yet. Seeking some advice.
