May 13, 2019 · Both knees and hips have been replaced in Joint Replacements

Over the course if PT , they’ve given me 6 pages of home exercises. But my extension was -10 so not so good. Doing heel slides and my leg out straight with my ankle on a bolster and 7 lbs on weight on my lower thigh. Heel raises and toe raises. Using a green band for lower leg exercises, abduction and adductor exercises. Clam shells and bridges. I do some exercises one day and the rest the next day. And up and down stairs.
I hope to not be using a cane at the end of May.

May 12, 2019 · Both knees and hips have been replaced in Joint Replacements

I had my first hip replaced in 2005 and the other one in 2007. I had my right knee replaced in 2017 and the left knee replaced January 2019. Has anyone else had all joints replaced..??
I’m walking with a cane and finished PT a week ago. I’m pain free and working on increasing flexion and extension. Also need to work on stairs. I have been limping for quite awhile due to one or the other joint having osteoarthritis.

I do see a therapist. She’s been a great help.

I won’t let it get to the point of not talking. Our family is estranged from my niece for about 5 years. She just recently had a baby. She’s not told her mom and dad. My one sister carried a lot of bitterness because of the estrangement. My mom passed 2 years ago. I was the closest because I wasn’t working and would take her to doctor appointment, get her hair done, go for coffee and take her shopping. I miss her like crazy. I think you’re right about people being more self centered

Thanks so for the support. I’m 64. My sisters are 63 and 59. I’ve had both hips replaced (2005 and 2007) and my right knee replaced in 2017. Neither has experienced anything like this except for childbirth.

I have to sisters. I had my knee replacement done 8 weeks ago. And my sister has the audacity to say I’m weak and I have a low pain tolerance.
Has anybody had this type of reaction from family members.

Mar 20, 2019 · Has anyone had a tight band feeling after total knee replacement? in Joint Replacements

We are concentrating on regaining strength in the left quadriceps. I’ve had a lot of pain underneath my knee. So we’re working on that and heel slides. Good Luck..!!!

Mar 17, 2019 · Has anyone had a tight band feeling after total knee replacement? in Joint Replacements

I had left knee replacement in 4/2017 and January 25,2019. I’m not making the progress that I did on my right knee.
I’m 6 weeks and have 118 degrees flexion. But the outside of my knee, right at the joint is sore. I’m going to PT.
The IT band got aggravated from me limping prior to my surgery.
I’ve had the IT band trouble and my OS gave me a shot of cortisone. Worked like magic.
