Quick update

Hi, I'm 3 and 1/2 weeks out and had my first physio since my rehab hospital stay. The PT is very pleased with my ROM 116 in both knees, she says that's unusual to be the same in both knees. She says my swelling is the cause of the stiffness and suggested tensor braces while walking and during elevating and ice. We did some quad strengthening and then ice and some exercises to strengthen the outside of my thigh. So far I am pleased, but still I wish I were back to normal. Luckily for me, I have my mom helping, and keeping me company.

  1. Hi Christine. I just found your blog today and I am encouraged by reading your story. I will be having bilateral tkr 13 days from now. I was having panic attacks thinking about it and decided I needed to read more stories about the whole process. I'm very thankful I came across your blog! Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. Hope your recovery continues to improve daily. I also have a blog and I am writing about my experiences along my journey of new knees. I find it helpful to journal my thoughts. Helps me to see things a bit clearer at times. Continued success to you. :)
