Wed, Apr 8 12:08pm · 8 weeks Post TKR: Can I bear weight? Tips on improving mobility please in Joint Replacements

I finished all but my last three sessions with my PT group, with good progress. The increased pain of this last week has me a little concerned, cuz I guess I expect it to heal progressively-with no hills and valleys. I will call my ortho office for advice-although getting thru is somewhat problematic right now.

Thank-you! Its hard to know what to expect when you haven't been through this before-being isolated with all the 'what-ifs'. My second TKR will be much easier, knowing somewhat, what to expect.

I am doing flexion exercises and stretching. Don't have access to a stationary bike but perhaps I canstart riding my bike-(I'm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State-so that is of course weather dependent :>)

Hi Group! I am 8 weeks post TKR, and my Physical Therapy Office closed (COvid-19) before my Rehab was complete. I have been pretty good about doing it on my own, but have some questions; I’ve been walking short distances since week 6-use the cane only for longer distance-up to half mile. Still have pain and stiffness, and I’m not sure I should be weight bearing very much. I would call my ortho office–but I have a feeling it would be faster get some answers from this site.

I medicated last week before my TKR Physical therapy session, and I found I was better with all manipulations/flexion, etc. Thoughts?
