Learning to walk normal after knee replacement
I had a double tkr surgery. My therapist told me to consciously walk a
normal stride with bend. I'm 4 months out and walk like a pro. Go easy
and slow… you have to retrain muscles.

@javajude I couldn't even imagine having them both done at the same time! Thanks for the input and encouragement! I'm just going to try that "stride with a bend" mind set and see how that goes. Thanks for the reply and I'm glad you're doing good.
Hi Judi, Congratulation! I was wondering if you had computer guided knee replacements? A friend of mine just recently had one knee done with that type of knee surgery and her recovery was a breeze compared to a traditional knee replacement. I need to have this surgery done soon so I am researching. Thank you for your reply.
