Thanks for the info. Glad your doing well. I didn't realize how long the recovery time could be.

Thank you both for answering. I didn't realize the recovery could be that long.

An "average" recovery is supposedly 3 months. Fibromialgia is really rough. My sister struggles with it among other problems.

Depends on whether you have Fibromyalgia as well as arthritis. I had my right knee replaced in 2011 and it was a full 6 months before I turned the corner from excruciating pain to bearable pain. It was also a much longer recovery than normal when I had 4 cervical vertebrae replaced after a severe car accident.

I finally got my full knee replacement. I had severe Severe Arthritis with bone spurs, squaring off of the bone, and valgus deformation. My knee cap was visibly smaller on the xray. After they operated, my surgeon said I had the knee of aN 88 year old and scolded me for not getting it done sooner. I'm 3 weeks into my recovery. I'm using a lot more pain medication than I thought I would need, but I'm really pushing my rehabilitation and therapy. My progress has been great. I highly recommend it to anyone. Don't continue to suffer needlessly. I'm already moving more easily than I did a month ago.
