TKR Two Years Later
I was told I would go home day after surgery but I couldn’t even move my toes for three days. When my toes moved I was immediately shipped out of hospital to rehab at 3 o’clock in the morning. Strange? I thought so. They also told my daughter she couldn’t see me or visit as I told them so. Her name was clearly on my paper signed by me. Because if that, my daughter didn’t talk to me or visit me In rehab 2 weeks and progressed to a point. Went home two days early as Covid was becoming a heavy hitter. Had rehab at home but that had to stop as he was working FT in a nursing home. When Covid settled and I was able to go back to physical therapy I went to a place close by for several months. We reached a point where I felt therapy was done. I can walk up and down stairs only one at a time. I limp, have nerve pain, and can’t walk around the block.m or get in my car easily. I’m thankful I can walk but so afraid to have left knee done. It’s like 50/50. Chance to resume what you consider normal activities or learn to live with the pain you’re left with. Just to let you all with problems post surgery that it is normal to a point to have been left with problems but keep seeking help for the pain and making connections here. God bless us everyone!
