Hi I havent written for couple of weeks, I'm six weeks in Tkr today. At three weeks I felt good and then four to five a pain came down the leg at side of knee and couldn't put my foot down, this lasted over a week and was very depressing, I couldn't do my Physio as good as I should but two days ago a miracle happened and the pain had gone, now physio yesterday I measured 100 bend but the straight part not good at seven. I saw my consultant at the hospital this morning and he was concerned about the pain i had and did an x ray in case it was a stress fracture but thankfully it wasn't. He said it is a big operation and it can take up to a year to get full strength, I took my dog for fifteen minute walk today without my stick and feel fine, now resting. If you do something remember to rest afterwards, I still take naproxen and co codamol daily. My husband desperate to take me away but I will know one day when I feel better and I will take him up on his offer, I hope everyone continues to mend, jackie
