Stairs after TKR - information please
« on: November 03, 2005, 09:58:18 AM »
Can anyone tell me how long after a TKR it is that one can climb stairs by putting one leg after the other without stopping (and without pain and twinges)?  What about coming down stairs as well.  Many thanks.

Hello,

You are usually able to do down the steps one after another when your  ROM is over 105 and you have strengthen your quadriceps.

You might get a lot more responses to these types of questions if you posted them under the Total knee replacement section.

I while back I noticed that three of us we about to have a total knee replacement at about the same time.  So I started a thread titled "TKR - March 2005 - Lets keep in touch" the three of us shared our TKR experience every step of the way.

 Since then many others may joined in and it has become more of a support group for those that have had a TKR.  If you would like to chat with several others that have had a TKR we would love to have you come join in.  I have found it very helpful to ask the other about their recovery.  So any question you have in the future about TKR please feel free to drop in.  If you just want to talk to others that understand what you are coping with, please know that you are welcome.

If you click on the following link it will take you there automatically:

Good luck in your recovery.
