I live in Canada, and was sent home with a book of exercises for first six weeks to do at home, Gehenna had checkup with surgeon and saw a physio for 5 min! He gave me second set of exercises, and no further follow up. I and a year post TKR, and doing more walking and recumbent bike, but still get very sore with stairs and housework. My other knee is very arthritic, kneecap displaced and bone on bone, but surgeon said” come back in a year. As long as you aren’t using cane or walker you are doing fine” So on I chug!I hear what you are saying about your other knee, the same is happening with me. I can’t get a brace that works over the kneecap etc, so just keep doing what I. An. I am envious of you folks who have physio. I may have to seek one out

I need to apologize for my spelling on that one! I’m obviously losing my vision too!!

Hi @glasgow46 – I am definitely a big fan of physical therapy. If you are getting sore with stairs and housework AND have a 2nd bad knee, you might benefit from some sessions just to get tips on how to maneuver. You said you might seek one out. Are there therapists in your area?
