Well I am now 4 days post operation on my left T K R had my R T K R in April 2018 I do however remember it's a long journey.
I went in on Wednesday and home Friday.
I was doing good with the walking but after philosophy on the Thursday they got me to go up stairs and down 15 steps and then pushing my knee to 90 degrees and trying straight leg lifts several times before discharging me I now have a knee so swollen I find I struggle to get any bend.
Having gone through this before I am not so concerned as I now know when the swelling goes down the movement increases.
They say not two T K R s are he same this one has been better as I am getting more sleep at night but it's still a brutal operation.
I have to go back in 2 weeks time for physiotherapy and know they will say my lift and bend is not good but this time I know once the swelling subsides it will come back.
at the moment it's like hitting a brick wall
