I'm 4 weeks post TKR and would like to ask all you good people out there-: when I do my bending exercises etc at home and holding onto chair back I can bend knee moderately, however I just cannot transfer that bend when I walk outside. It suddenly feels like a peg leg and bends less and with so much pain. Also I've noticed that whilst walking, every once in a while my bad knee suddenly collapses from under me just like it did before my surgery, when i was still walking bone on bone. Thankfully I still use one crutch for outside walking, more for security which keeps me upright when this happens.
Also when I use the static bike for 15-20 mins I seem to be in more pain the next day. Is any of this familiar to TKR sufferers.
I spend approx 15-20 mins 3 times a day doing my rehab exercises. Is this enough or should I be going a lot more. Do you fellow forum friends spend more time on them. I would really love to hear from you.
