Meal Preparation After A TKR

Literature regarding preparing for a total knee replacement state that for a time period after the surgery, patients will need to have help with their meal preparation. I’ll vouch for that…

The first week after my tkr, it was very uncomfortable to stand up for longer than a few seconds. And, the crutches I needed to walk with added to the concern. It could be worse, yes, but I definitely agree it makes for an easier recuperation to have someone else do this task.

After the first week, there are ways to do it on your own. As much as I love eating plain steamed veggies, the task of preparing the veggies was too cumbersome for me. Heck, just filling the ice bag took everything I had. 🙁 So, I needed to make some changes. Here’s what worked for me:

Frozen vegetables. There is a reason for frozen vegetables. They came in VERY handy during my tkr recuperation and meal preparation. Either microwaved or poured into a steamer – quick and easy. The less time I spent standing in one position, the better.

Frozen entrees. Formerly known as “tv dinners”, there are so many varieties and brands to choose from – it’s easy to find something that suits your palate. Plus, the nutritional value is decent. All you need to do is remove them from the box, poke the plastic film, and pop them in the microwave. When done, just dig in. Quick and easy to the max.

Crockpots. I swear by these and have loved mine for more years than I care to admit to. 🙂 All you need to do is put in a piece of protein (like chicken), a washed and cut baked potato, and whatever other veggies you want. (If you don’t have the energy for the potato, just put in some rice with a little bit of liquid). Of course, frozen veggies are the easiest. Sprinkle with some Italian seasoning, put on the lid, cook, and you have a great meal. It probably takes about 5 minutes to prepare.

There were (still are) times when I’d fill my crockpot with water, add some split peas, herbs, and frozen veggies. Cooked at high for about 4 hours is all it took to give me a deliciously easy and tasty bowl of soup.

Hope some of these suggestions help you during your recuperation from a total knee replacement. The first couple of weeks is the most difficult. If you’re like me, the less time standing – the better.
