Title: TKR Recovery--4th year
Post by: Tholzel on October 28, 2005, 09:41:45 PM
Had a bilateral TKR (Total Knee Replacement) Oct 2001.  Was able to walk 1/2 mile without crutches 21 days later.  Took ONE YEAR before I could do a 140-degree squat, and even that is not a full squat.  By now the dead skin area above the knees has come fully back to life. Knees almost never cluck--but they always set off the airport metal detectors. Also, I'm no longer bowlegged! Read the full description of the operation and recovery at velocitypress.com.

That is awesome! It gives me hope to read success stories about TKRs b/c I am still having so much trouble with mine and just tore my MCL so to hear that someone has come out on the other side gives me hope!!

Thank you for sharing
