Hi, I had my first TKR in Oct 15 was slowly getting places with it but was being hindered by my 2nd knee while waiting for it's turn.
Had 2nd TKR Sep 16 and had nothing but misery ever since... the pain was alot worse than the first (didn't think that possible) was on opiates have been off them for months now and just take Panadiene Forte x 2 twice daily to help with pain... it hardly take the edge off.
My first one was getting good bend at 115% and has dropped to 110% .. my 2nd knee was as 110% and the surgeon didn't even tell me what it was last visit, but I know it's way down as I am really struggling with it.
Has anyone else had this happen... I know recovery is 18mth+ but for a good bend they prefer b4 12mths this is surgeons and not physios as some physios have unhealthy expectations.
