Hi everyone. Has it already been eight years since my total knee replacement, otherwise known as a tkr? You bet it has. February 2008 was when I had this surgery. So..it is time for an update.
KNEE FLEXIBILITY. My knee flexibility is still around 90-93. It is due to previous scar tissue dating […]
Hi everyone! It has already been seven years since my tkr surgery. I thought it would be fun to share what is going on now to help others going through the same thing at this stage of post-tkr surgery. So, here goes…
* Knee swelling is still common after walking or standing for extended periods […]
Hi everyone. Thanks for stopping by my site. It’s that time again…
I completely understand the hardships and frustration of undergoing tkr recuperation.
I am not a medical professional who dispenses advice. READ THE WAIVER OF LIABILITY IN THE LEFT SIDEBAR.
* I do not know how soon you can engage in weight bearing.
* I […]
Hi my favorite readers! I have been receiving an increasing number of comments about tkr knees getting warm or hot after activity. I have written about this previously and thought I would update information in this post.
Please note: My tkr surgery was over 5.5 years ago. To this day, my knee still gets […]
Wow..five years have already passed since my total knee replacement surgery. As the saying goes..â€where’s the time gone?â€ Anyways, it’s time for a tkr update. Thanks for reminding me of this. I am a success story for a tkr, and grateful for it.
* Nothing much has changed since my last update, actually. I am […]

Something else has come to my attention that needs addressing. This site has been up and running for over 4 years, and some new readers have been asking me some strange questions.
Anyways, here are some answers that need to be reiterated:
* As stated in other parts of this site, I own […]
Some of my readers contacted me and asked about my tkr flexibility so long after my surgery. I inadvertently didn’t mention that in my 4-year post-tkr update. So….(thanks for asking, btw…short for by the way..)
My tkr flexibility is averaging 95, which is about the same as it was before my knee replacement. I have […]
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 excessive pain (woohoo!!!)
No excessive clicking
No feelings of misalignment.
I am what’s considered a success […]
Hi everyone! I just returned from my three-year post-tkr follow-up and wanted to post an update in case you’re at the same level or going to be.
As I’ve mentioned previously, prior to my total knee replacement (tkr), my legs were different lengths due to a car accident fracturing my femur..or thighbone, causing my thighbones […]
I just re-read my 20-month post tkr post. Nothing much has changed, actually. There is one change, however. Now that I have reached the two year point, I do not have to take antibiotics whenever I go to the dentist. That’s great, in my opinion.
I attribute my success to the fact that I have diligently […]
