    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Length of recuperation after bilateral knee replacement
    ellieby posted:
    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.
