TKR 3wks in

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all

Just a wee update at the 3wk mark, pain remains around 3 on the 1-10 scale now, and increases to 4-5 after exercise . Still on Solpadol  30/500 since leaving hospital .

I have now started walking with one crutch which is going pretty well, still cannot walk properly without that support, and still undergoing physio once a week

Rom is 0- to just over 90 degrees, up 10 on last week. I have noticed I am getting a lot more hip pain ( due to be replaced next , and the timing to be discussed with my Consultant at the 6 wk appointment)

So all in all pretty happy with how it's all going, I still get very tired even after walking say 300 yards, but guess it's very early still and my body is likely still trying to get over the surgery.
