TKR in March 2017

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello all, I have been posting for the last year with many ups and downs. I just wanted to let all of you that are struggling like I was that there is hope. I am on the last day of a month long trip through Ireland. The new knee worked like a charm. I had little if any pain, no limp and climbed thousands of stairs. Although my range of motion was not spectacular at my last check up, the thing worked great over here with no swelling. So keep up the exercises and don’t give up the fight, it’s worth it in the end.

      Hi Missmagmumps, 

      I’m 5 months last Friday, hang In there it will come. I stoped using my crutch at week 3, I can do stairs normally but if I’ve over done it I’m a bit stiff in the mornings and the stairs become a bit difficult. We are all different with our recovery its not text book that’s for sure. Xx
