TKR and cold weather
« on: June 22, 2007, 08:07:48 PM »
Thanks for all your input.

Running a poll for two reasons. My husband is thinking about a TKR but had pain in cold weather with his HTO hardware (wondering if he will have the same issues) and I am in my final two semesters of nursing school and using the poll for my Med-Surg paper.

Thank you again

I answered achiness - but this can get really achy on some days - need deep heat to get comfortable.

However - I am no better or worse off then befor my TKR - it seems to be par for the course with dodgy knees!
