Good morning everyone , hope the day finds you well and pain-free.
Im in the UK, and am due yo have a TKR in March (no specific date as yet). Ive been given loads of info by the Ortho Team, and ws having a read this morning. On reading the section re discharge advice, I was surprised to see the following: You will usually be discharfed 3-5 days post op (which seems the norm). You will also need to be able to straighten the knee fully, and be able to flex/bend the knee to 90 degrees !!!!!! 90 degrees???!!! Having read loads of your experiences, I'll still be in hospital at Christmas!! Im assuming they take a lot of other things into consideration, but was just wondering if anyone from the UK had anything to add?
Also, a friend mentioned to me last night that she thought I should be taking some kind of vitamin/dietary supplement prior to the op - did any of you do this, and is there anything you particularly recommend?
Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the weekend xx
