Hi everyone. Since some of you have contacted me about the frustrations with tkr recuperation, here is a reprint of an older post from 2008. On second thought…tkr recuperation insight:
The decrease in my knee swelling is more than likely a culmination of a variety of things – all taking 6.5 months to see any results. (Yes, I know that in proper writing composition – numbers under ten are to be written out. I’m gutsy. 🙂 )
Recuperation from a total knee replacement is time consuming and involves a variety of exercises. Just don’t give up. Stay with it. I’ve known people who still can’t walk downstairs and it’s been a year after their tkr…total knee replacement. They simply do not do any exercises to increase their flexibility. What’s the sense in that?
Find this tkr post about second thought…tkr recuperation helpful? Kindly share….
