Thank you for the welcome, Becky and Darlene. I am very fortunate to be doing well in my recovery thus far. Each day brings a little surprse of a new pain here, or a pinch there.

The upside is that I don't have much of an appetite so I'm getting a head start on weight loss. Gained about 30# in the last 3 years with issues in both knees keeping me too sedentary. My "good knee" (left) is limping along on Euflexa injections. Perhaps if I lose enough weight it will be good for a few more years.

Thanks again for your message and inspiration.

Welcome to the team. It sounds like you are doing great after your surgery. Just keep doing the exercises and don't overdo it. It is amazing how well you will be able to get around once your knee has healed. I have had both my knees replaced, one 7 years ago and the other one 6 years ago. I haven't had any problems. Good luck with everything you are attempting to do.

Thank so much. Have kicked the cane for moving around the house. Therapist seems to think my recovery is going very well. Trying to be careful not to do too much. A lot more therapy will keep me in line. Thanks again.

Welcome! I had both hips replaced last Sept. and can now do 2 miles on my treadmill and another .5 on my elliptical. I'm also taking care of my infant grandson 2 days a week. I'm sure you'll be up and going soon. Follow up on all your exercises. Good luck!

Recovering from total knee replacement Jan. 9th. Am so happy to be on this side of it; recovery is going very well. Completed in-home PT; starting 8 weeks of PT at the clinic on Monday. Went into the procedure with extra lbs. which I am determined to lose as I become more active. Spending today setting up my eating plan and tracking on Spark. So glad I found the site last week. Being able to take my dog for a 2 mile walk is something I missed so much.
