Bilateral TKR
alohagirl1 posted:
I am 55 and had bilateral knee replacements in march 2013. It was painful but I did pretty good despite one of my incisions taking about 2 1/2 months to heal (part of the incision had necrosed). It has been 8 months now and I am finding that my joints ache all over (hands, wrist, ankles, hips, lower back, etc.). They say it could take 6 months to a year to heal.
