I had a total knee replacement done 10 weeks ago. I have been doing the daily physio exercises and am now walking without crutches at home. when i walk outside i still use 1 crutch. I still experience pain getting up from a chair but have very little pain now when I walk. Before my surgery both my knees were diagnosed with osteoarthritis, the left was severe and the right knee was chronic. The right knee has been replaced and getting stronger but the left knee is getting worse.
Can anyone tell me when it is safe to navigate up and down steps with the new knee. At present I only use my non operated knee and it is getting really painful because it is doing too much work.
I am not ready to have the other knee replaced yet.
Until I found this group I was totally regretting having the knee replacement surgery, but thanks to all the wonderful people that shared their own experiences I now know that things will improve. it just takes time.
