I had a tkr 5 weeks ago today. It went swimmingly. After two weeks staples were rremoved and it looked like an ancient scar. At 3 weeks i had 0 extension and 118 flexion. I had left knee done because I kept falling over. Last year I broke my neck and scalped myself falling thru a window. Had to do the surgery or die. It is so good, I want to do the other knee in three months. Get it over with before winter. With no cartilage at all, the other knee grinds and I get shocks if I walk to much. But I don't fall. My new knee still swells a little. I still ice daily. My only problem is that I can't sleep easily. I go from bed to chair to bed to chair. I slept about 18 hrs a day the first 3 weeks, but now I am a zombie. No real pain, just cant get comfortable. If the one leg is ok, the other leg isnt. I am hoping thing will change with two TKRs. Anyone else have two TKRs in 4 months? Thanx.
