I was so confused as to why I couldn't go down stairs as I know my knee bend is adequate, so today I watched the foot movements in slow motion and discovered the problem. it has nothing to do with the knee. . . .Through almost a year of walking with my leg straight, the achilles tendon has obviously shortened and wouldn't permit me to keep the foot flat on the step while lowering the good leg. so now I have another tendon to work on! On another note, I was looking for exercises for this particular problem on a page about the TKR. It explained how on the second day you would get up, and probably walk on the third day. And now for the real gem! "It is normal to feel some discomfort at this stage" You bet it is!
