Total hip replacement

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had a TKR 5+weeks ago and although l have noted a vast improvement find l am still in pain and need to take regular analgesics.

l attend physiotherapy weekly which has helped with the added benefit of discussing my progress.

l can now walk without crutches in the home but not confident going outside the home without support.

l find as before surgery when l stand l have to stand momentarily to balance myself before walking. 

Sleeping since surgery is difficult due to the pain and feel l am suffering from sleep deprivation and although l have spoken to my GP he is very unsupportive.

      Hi Richard 

      9weeks post op and off crutches and sticks but still in discomfort in knees..

      trying not to take analgesics during the day but need them at night.

      haven't seen a further improvement in the last 2 weeks which can be frustating and the lethargy is not very pleasant.

      how are you?
