Knee #2- am I ready?
I just hit my 4-week mark post first TKR. My "good" knee took the brunt of compensating for the operative knee and is now really sore (even with the narcotic pain meds). I am seeing my surgeon next week to schedule knee #2. Any advice about how many weeks post-surgery is ideal before getting the other done? I met people in the hospital who were having their second knee done 5 weeks after their first. I was thinking 8-10 weeks would help me to be solid. Any thoughts or recommendations? I know we're all different but am interested to hear how YOU did it! Thank you.
