Bilaterial Knee Replacements
csmmt24 posted:
Good evening. I am age 53 and new to the site although I had my bilaterial knee replacement in January 2012. Still recovering and just wanted to see if there are others out there experiencing the same issues that I am. The left knee is doing much better than the left, and there is still daily pain. My physical therapy is 3 times a week, but like many post I have read, I was never really told the length of time a bilaterial replacement would take. I know we all recover differently but I was hopeful to be way ahead of where I am. Staying postive though and guess it will just take time.

Hi, I had a right TKR on May 1 of this year. From all that I've read, recovery can take up to a year. BTKR is, of course, more traumatic and difficult to get over.

How's your ROM? Do you still have a lot of swelling and pain? What does your doctor say about your progress?
