Sure, there are lots of stories to tell. What exactly are you looking for? There is also a section lower on the board under the Arthritis section for Total Knee Replacements.

I had my knee replaced.  The recovery of it well it goes into steps.  Monthly mark.. Two month mark.. Six month mark.  Year mark.  It is a full year to get strong.  It is painful

Had my TKR in Nov 2006, manipulation Dec 2006, very hard time with pain and recovery, still seeing my OS about some continuing nagging problems. I'm at 18 months post-op...thought I'd feel like this at 6 months. Boy, was I wrong! But it's all worth it now, even I am never completely pain free.
