Stairs & A TKR…19 Months Post-Op

The past few days I have needed to climb up and down stairs that have a wider than 6” depth. (6” is the depth of a typical step or stair).What an experience.

The second day I was totally pooped. I was so tired, in fact, that I fell asleep during some of the Detroit Red Wings’ game against the St. Louis Blues in Sweden. That’s a first. It was kind of funny, actually, because when I started to snooze the Wings were up by two. No worries. When I woke up, they were losing. Bummer.

Anyways, back to my knee. It has been swollen for the past two days. My ankles are swollen, also. The first day sleeping was tough due to my tkr leg hurting so much. It was similar to how it was back when I was still stretching out my hamstrings. My tkr leg was having difficulty stretching out. Ouch..

The nerve on the outside of my tkr leg has been reminding me that it’s there, also. It usually is painful to just stand up. I have to wait a few seconds to get everything in place prior to moving. (I just re-read that sentence and ….that would make a good YouTube video).

I’m staying in an older house now, while watching a cute labrador, and my mind views it as interesting to see how these older houses are built as compared to the newer ones. My body doesn’t think it’s too interesting, though.

It could be much worse. So, for now, I’ll just sound like life is tough when it really isn’t. Just an update about the thrills of stairs and a tkr….19 months post op.

    Hiya. My stairs are also quite deep and I am 8 weeks post op TKR, and finding it painful to walk the stairs normally, shallow stairs are fine, but even then coming down them is not as easy as I thought it would be due to the fact that my muscles are weakened from months of relying on the other leg/knee to do all the work. Will it ever get back to normal I wonder?

  • Janice,
    I’m still having difficulty going down stairs……up is easier although not easy…..luckily I don’t have stairs in my house or at work. I do have stairs out back on my deck for the pool, but now that summer’s gone, I don’t go out there anymore….lol….too depressing to look at a cold and deserted pool…
