Learning to walk normal after knee replacement

I remember learning how to walk again as I walked as if I had a peg leg. I have to honestly say that it took me 7 months to walk naturally without limping, or dragging my leg. I am 9 months out from RTKR and no one could tell I ever had a knee replacement. Give it time, 8 weeks is rather early, it will come when you can walk naturally again. Good luck with PT.

That's encouraging to know it took that long and the recovery was good. I'm going on 11 weeks post double knee plus 3 weeks post MUA and I would have to say that I can't walk very well at all or far.
