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

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.

Yes, I had it with my right knee TKR. It lasted for about 3 weeks, I think. My recent left knee didnt get it nearly as bad. It was awful!

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.
