Good evening. I am age 53 and new to the site although I had my bilaterial knee replacement in January 2012. Still recovering and just wanted to see if there are others out there experiencing the same issues that I am. The left knee is doing much better than the left, and there is still daily pain. My physical therapy is 3 times a week, but like many post I have read, I was never really told the length of time a bilaterial replacement would take. I know we all recover differently but I was hopeful to be way ahead of where I am. Staying postive though and guess it will just take time.View Thread
Hello, my bilateral replacement was on January 11th. To this day I still have pain, but am keeping positive with my therapy. I have had a slight cave in in some spots but like yours mine does go away. No rash or swollen ankles, although I continue to have swelling knees all the time. As we know ice is our best friend.View Thread
