4-Year Post TKR Update

Hello my favorite readers! I’ve had some readers ask me lately how everything is going after my tkr, so I thought I’d update. Plus, it’s coming up to the 4-year post surgery date.

Everything is fine:
No revisions or adjustments have been needed
No complications
No excessive pain (woohoo!!!)
No excessive clicking
No feelings of misalignment.
I am what’s considered a success story. 🙂

I attribute it to doing my post-tkr recuperation program as directed, exercising regularly and eating a healthy meal plan.

I enjoy exercising and feeling my muscles and body move.

I enjoy eating a plain, unadulterated meal plan full of fruits, veggies, lean protein and whole grains. Moderation is the key, in my opinion.

I am not on any medications.

I maintain the proper body weight, which decreases pressure on my tkr leg and skeletal system in general.

Sleeping is not an issue, as it was during the tkr recuperation process. I’ve written before about going for a solid 8 months without sleeping more than 2 hours at a time due to excessive pain. It seems to be a common issue among total knee replacement patients.

Don’t get me wrong. There are times when my tkr area hurts due to exercising too much. (My mistake)

The damaged nerve (caused from a previous bone spur) that runs from my lower spine to ankle still hurts every now and then. I have written about the nerve damage in previous posts.

Sometimes my tkr does make a clicking sound, but that is rare.

If anyone reading this is considering a total knee replacement, I would highly recommend it if you have exhausted all other options.
Hoping this helps others going through the same thing. Does anyone else have stories to share?

Find interesting? Kindly share…

  • I’m at a little over 3 years now, and sometimes forget that I ever had the tkr surgery! Still, there are days at work when I over-do things and my leg gets a little stressed and achy, but nothing at all like before the surgery!

    I’ll never forget the day I stumbled upon this blog and found so many people experiencing the same things…..

    Thanks Booktoots!
