I had also undergone bilateral TKR,but after a month I have no such problems mentioned by you.You need to take assistance from physio therapist before you start walking normally.Initially he made me walk with walker to correct the steps and speed of walking.This helped lot and finally I could give up walker.Pl start walking on soft surface for few weeks and take ice-pack atleast 3 times a day.This is better than taking pain killer.This is my own experience.My doctor had prescribed only Paracetemol 1000mg.I gave up long back,but still I use ice-pack after coming back from walking and after exercising.This helps believe me.Pl give some more time you will be ok.View Thread
About 6 weeks back,I had undergone Bilateral Knee replacement in Kolkata,India.Iam feeling absolutely nomal person.After 3weeks,I started walking on soft surface for 30min and still continuning.I could drive my car and do the daily chores effortlessly.Thanks to my physio therapist.It is 5weeks now that I am undergoing the exercises and would like to continue for few more weeks till he okeys me.Presently I could not stand more than 15min,I feel stiffness in my thighs and also the same stiffness is present when I wake up in the morning.But it does not disturb me to have normal activity.Climbing stairs without holding the railing is no problem.I am sharing my status to provide confidence to the people who are planning to go for bilateral knee replacement or had one.I feel success lies in getting assistance of a good physio therapist.May be I am lucky.Good luckView Thread
