I had my left knee replaced February 5, 2013. The surgery and hospital stay was probably better than I expected. The pain and getting around after is probably what I expected. I had a set back on Tuesday night 2/12/2013 one week post op. My knee popped or snapped and I felt it and then it was painful anytime I moved it likened to the first day after surgery. Went to P T anyway and they actually helped. said it could have been a tendon or scar tissue in there. Thank goodness that only lasted a couple of days and now able to move it again without so much pain. I knew this was not going to be easy and hopefully the end result will be worth all the recovery. I'll keep updating as I progress. I do not know how anyone can have bilateral replacement as the good leg helps the bad one move and push yourself up in bed. I am glad I chose to to one at a time! Cannot immagine not having a good leg to stand on.
