My name is Dusty and need a TKR of the right knee. Have had two scopes and an injection which only prolonged the inevitable. With 1000-1400mg. Of ibuprofen I can do just about anything however, my knee does become sore and stiff. I think what bothers me the most is the stiffness. Maybe 40 degrees at most. Am looking forward to no limping and noticeable bow in leg.
Would appreciate any words of wisdom from someone.
Thank youView Thread
Tips is my first time for being on this sight.
I too am in need of a TKR of the right knee and am scared to death.
I really appreciate your comments and wondering how your doing today? I am 50 and have been athletic until one year ago. Now I simply try to do cardio just to keep the muscles firm in anticipation if that dreaded day. I am doing the procedure sometime this year. I don't have much pain but I have a noticeable limp and right leg very bowed. It would be nice not to have people stare at me any more after the procedure.
Any thoughts ?View Thread
