One Year after TKR
My surgery was successful. I went through what most folks do along the way to a year. I performed range of motion exercises for the whole year. Now my knee and leg don't feel like my other knee–I have a tight band feeling in the TKR knee but no pain. I don't have the fine motor control in my TKR knee which would help with finer-tuned motion. I have very good range of motion. I've started playing doubles tennis, I walk the golf course most times when I play, and I use the elliptical often and do weights, including strength building on my legs. I am happy with the surgery, but wish I never had to have it because the TKR knee will never be a good as my other knee. I think the worse your knee is before surgery, the happier you will be with a TKR. My knee wasn't that bad, but I went ahead with the surgery and I'm OK with the outcome. I'm hoping the knee continues to improve over time. Anybody know if improvement continues? I'm 73 years old.
