Bilaterial TKR Progress
BiminiBob posted:
On 7/28/12, I underwent simultaneous Bilateral TKR, today 11/16/12 both knees still hurt after standing for 10 minutes or walking up a flight of stairs. The pain tends to go across the entire knee, & getting up from a chair still requires a push off with 2 arms to get standing and it does hurt for about 20 seconds after.

I am a 59 year old male, 6'4" & 300 pounds at present. Over the past year I did lose 70 pounds on the orthos advise after 2 complete scopes were done that did nothing.
My issues came after a rear end car accident on the interstate where in typical rush our fashion you go from 55 to stop every ½ mile and the car behind me did not see the stopped traffic.

A total of 12 days in the hospital 6 in a surgical unit then the balance in the hospitals rehab unit & the only took me since it was a bilateral one knee would have been shipped out to a rehab center.

I have done extremely well post op & the Surgeon and PT kicked me loose after 6 weeks I have full flex to the point the doctor does not want me to bend them that far and full extension. I can sit cross legged in bed or my chair.

Phantom pain still happens, certain movements cause pain, standing & climbing stairs still hurt.

Am I expecting too much at this point in my recovery, both Dr. & PT says I have exceeded the normal goals. I can ride my bike 1 mile a day pretty much pain free.

When do they really no longer hurt???
