Success Story

Posted , 8 users are following.

I'm 8 months post TKR. Yesterday was my daughter's wedding. I wore high heels all day until after midnight and danced all evening.  I could hardly walk before my op. My knees still fine today.

    There you go ladies and gentlemen.  TKR can be a huge success. It just takes time.

    What encouraging news. I haven't been able to wear high heels for years but would so love to do so. Went out last night for my first do ( 7weeks post op) and felt like a woman again but was still in jeans and trainers. I did have a dance with my hubby but it was a smooch. Can't wait to jive again. You've made me think it's possible.
