Edited , 8 users are following.

well it's nearly upon me now.

2nd T K R this time it's my left knee.

Had my right T K R April 2018.

I am due in next Wednesday February 12th.

they say one is a different experience to the other I am hoping this one will be.

I have dreaded memories from the first one it was pain you couldn't explain.

I am due to go for my final pre op checked in the morning.

Wish me luck 😊

    Hi there, best wishes and the best of luck to you. You are correct. Each limb reacts differantly, never mind people. So hopefully your heading for a much better experience. Best wishes,Stephen

    Hi! I can vouch for the 2nd being quite different to the first. My first was October last year and was a text book recovery. It went so well that I had my other knee done just shy of 3 months later on January 7th this year. Although this one isnt horrendous it is behaving quite differently to the 1st. I've had problems that I didnt have with the first, it's been painful for longer and seems to have plateaued a bit this last week. Difficult to understand when both legs are attached to the same body lol!! Hopefully you will find that this one will be the other way around and be better than the 1st one. Fingers crossed for you and best of luck!!!!🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞🀞

      Yes I have 120 / 125 if you push hard. on my right knee

      there were times when I thought I was never going to get a good R O M but as soon as the swelling started to subside it all started to fall in place.

      I will be having a epidural again and going by the noise I heard it is a brutal op.

      my surgeon said we do the easy part you do the hard work which just about sums it up

    Good luck Defender. I wish you a successful operation and a problem free recovery this time round. As you know my second has been a far better experience compared to the first and I hope yours proves to be the same. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you on Wednesday.

    Many thanks.

    I went for my final blood test and to see the physiotherapist today.

    there were 8 in the group there are about five different surgeons there doing knee operation's.

    I didn't realize one surgeon does on average 5 total knee replacements on the same day.
