Length of recuperation after bilateral knee replacement

Hello. I had both knees replaced 3 months ago. I would like to hear from others as to the length of time it takes to recuperate. I still have stiffness and some discomfort most of the time. I do take OTC medication every few days. I am unable to kneel and getting up from the floor is next to impossible! Everyone says I am doing great, but at times it gets discouraging. Am I expecting too much too early? I would love to hear how others have progressed after surgery. Thank you so much!

Hi Ellieby,

I really encourage you to repost your message on our Knee and Hip Replacement community and while you're waiting for responses there, be sure to read the other discussions. You'll find a lot of insight there.
