Hello: Just found this site yesterday and have gained a lot of good insight on issues with TKR; mine was July 5, 2017.
I'm progressing very well, still have pain of course but trying to tough it out without prescription painkillers; so far so good.
I exercise every day, attend physical therapy 3x/week.
I work part time as a barista at Starbucks, a job I've held for 3 yrs and love. My question is: when will I be able to return to work? I realize I've only just finished my 2nd week postop but it's nagging in my mind.
Has anyone w/TKR have a job where they are on their feet during their entire time working? Could you give me your opinions/experiences/insight? I normally work a 5 to 7-1/2 hr shift, tending usually to work at least 7 hours as our store is always busy, I can use the $$ and I truly enjoy what I do.
Can anyone help with their story?
