I am at week 12 post TKR and my knee seems seems to be healing fairly well. I have a bend of about 115 and general function is improving. I drove my car for the first time yesterday, which will help me regain some independence
However....,I still cannot walk outside the house without two crutches. My Physio puts this down to loss of muscle function in my hips, and thinks I may need a further OA clinic appointment as I have only ever had an X-ray of my right knee.
My question is, is it as unusual as I think still to be on two crutches? Frankly I feel much more disabled now than I did before the op, as at least then I could do a supermarket shop, carry an umbrella etc. Although I have to admit that I have been avoiding activities that need mobility for more years than I care to remember.
Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks
