Choosing a Knee Implant / Prosthesis - BoneSmart®
I had a Tka five weeks ago (right leg)and I most certainly agree with you all about the pain and swelling. This being my second Tka (having had my left leg done june of 2011) I knew what to expect but it still didn’t help. The sleepless nights, bouts of depression and just feeling less of a woman (due to having one leg) really starts to get to you after awhile. I don’t have much pain in my knee any more just ALOT of discomfort. I’m going to continue to push through it though.
Writing Arguments - Below The Knee Prothesis
Hi, I had TKR on my left knee 4 weeks ago. My physical therapist who comes to see me 3 times a week and this website are what gives me hope that things will get better. For the past 2 days I have spent many hours in bed elevating my leg and icing it because the swelling has once again increased. It hurts to sit or lay. I can hardly do my exercises because my leg is so big. I am taking ibuprophen during the day now and norco/vicoden at night. I can’t sleep at night because the pain spikes… Sounds like this is pretty normal. I am so tired of hurting. I had no idea recovery would be like this. This site and the comments i read have been so helpful. It makes me feel less alone. Thank you
