Talking About Laptop Heat & A TKR

Hi everyone. Recently, I have been putting my laptop onto a towel and then placing it onto my lap. One of my readers asked me if I, or anyone else, had experienced pain from laptop heat and a tkr. She had been using her laptop while sitting on her sofa or bed. She noticed that there was immense pain after a while. Let’s start talking about laptop heat and a tkr.

Well, within the last two weeks, it has happened to me. (I am 19 months post-tkr, for the records).

After about 20 minutes, I notice a pain in my tkr area. Sometimes the pain is not that intense, other times it is. My knee is very hot at times. Other times it is warm.

Either way….I’m going to find another way to use my laptop that is ergonomically correct. It is time to experiment with laptop heat and a tkr. I wonder if those Portabooks really work?

If you find this post talking about laptop heat and a tkr interesting, kindly share….

  1. I solved this problem when my friend suggested a wireless keyboard and mouse. Presto! Light and easy to use and move; it’s the ticket.
