Hi @emb123 – On my first TKR in 2017 I did formal, professional PT for 12 weeks. On my most recent one in Jan 2019, I did it for 8 weeks. But I still do exercises at home; do the stationery bike or walk every day; and I'm about to start doing water exercises (on my own – not in a class). Do you feel like your walks are giving you all of the exercise you need to maintain your flexibility and strength?

Thank you, Debbra…..Yes, I feel quite strong in the knee/body. I do know when I've done "too" much, though. Knee feels "tight" on occasion, but while I'm not worried about my ROM, I know it still feels awkward when going down stairs the right way, not the way I use to do it. Just hoping that that's because it's still awkward doing it the correct way after so many years of guarding it and doing the "up with the good, down with the bad" scene.
