That was my greatest fear before my surgery! Mine both turned out ok, thankfully. Is it the doctor's fault?

Fri, Oct 11 4:37am · 12 Days to Revision Surgery - Question about PT in Joint Replacements

Do you have Uber? Taxi? The first 3 weeks should be strictly one on one therapy with the same therapist. Equipment not required. So home care should be fine. Make sure they are good, though! They should report to your Ortho every week so he'll know that you are progressing.

I wouldn't worry. I'm also 4 months post op. You're ahead of me! Internal healing takes many months. I was told many people are only Starting to feel better, at 4 months. Be patient.

You sound like me! I'm not gardening much, except for weeding, because I had my second knee replaced at 4 months. I have briefly knelt to look under my bed, using a pad, but its really uncomfortable. But doable when necessary

Fri, Sep 27 7:31am · Having knee replacement: how to prepare and questions about PT in Joint Replacements

Start strengthening exercises NOW. Get a list from your doctor. Find a GOOD physical therapist now (ask around) and schedule for 6 or 7 days post surgery. My doctor insisted on me starting immediately, like that. I just got home yesterday from my second knee replacement. Glad I only have two legs! Moving is easier this time, because my therapist told me how to prepare. I'm still very swollen and can't bend much, but that will pass. Good luck with everything. A good therapist is essential to recovery.
