TKR: What Does Yours Look Like Afterwards?

Hi everyone. I have received quite a few questions about what to expect after having a tkr or total knee replacement. What does the typical knee area look like? What did mine look like? At the two-year mark, I wrote the following post. It still applies at the 8-year post-tkr mark…fyi.

It finally happened. It’s been 25 months since my tkr and I’ve been looking at a swollen, flat knee area. Well, the other day, I took a close look at my knee. While laying down, I lifted my knee straight up to check it out. (Remember how difficult that is when first recuperating from a tkr? I sure do..) For the first time, there is a definite indentation along the inside of my tkr knee area. The area on the opposite side has a slight indentation also. The upper portion of my tkr still looks a little swollen. My surgeon said it would probably always be like that. No biggie to me.

I was curious to see how my leg looked while I standing up. The entire area surrounding my knee appears wrinkled. Big time wrinkles, like someone in the Florida sun for 30 years. There was still definition, but it appears slightly less. The swelling appears more intense when standing up. Actually, the swelling looks more like fat. Oh well. It could be worse.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing. What does your tkr knee look like?

Find interesting? Kindly share….Remember, we’re all in this together…
