Hi everyone, thanks again for all your help. This forum is a GOLD MINE of tips, encouragement and information. Here are my questions for today
Post TKR Leg Strength?
I've seen references to people using a belt or strap to lift their leg, for example, when getting out of bed. Does everyone do this, and if so, how long does it last? And when people list a number to describe how far they can bend their knee after surgery, that makes me nervous...!! And it sounds quite painful. With about four weeks left before my surgery, I'm trying to wrap my brain around what life will be like when I return home (I live alone with two very demanding Pomeranians.) Yes, I'm still deciding what to do with them...yikes..!! So are you walking around like "Igor", dragging your TKR leg, after surgery?
Postop Walker Usage
Is it true that post TKR you can only use the type of walker that has two wheels in the front only and straight legs in back? My walker has four wheels and brakes. And a seat and basket I've rigged up so I can move things from kitchen to table, etc. Gotta get real creative here, I guess..!!
