TKR and knee braces
@janicemmccarthy It is unfortunate COVID-19 delayed PT. Knee stability a being pain free is vital. I'm sure you want to get back to being active.
Below I have listed members that have recently discussed TKR. I have also linked previous discussions where you may find information and member support. You may wish to scroll through these posts.

May I ask what suggestions PT had for knee stability? Can they not help you with more exercises to improve stability?

PT said I was finished with what they could do. Told me to ride stationary bike, which I can do for 30 minutes at a time and walk. I can do the treadmill for about 20 minutes at a time but holding the side rails. I purchased a pkg of compression knee braces but I don't know if I am suppose to use them. I am walking fine but occasionally loose my balance. Nights are terrible because both knees still are so tight and the inner side of my left knee is tender and hurts.
