Why Yes, Total Knee Replacements Are…Fun?

Three weeks after a total knee replacement and I’m getting seriously stir-crazy. At least I have moved away from the walker to a stick but I’m still supposed to be walking for function. No trips around the block yet. But being able to carry my own dishes to the sink or do my own ice packs feels pretty wonderful.

The physical therapy certainly consumes my day. Three sessons a day, icing before and after, with two of the exercises being particularly painful. But it’s good to see progress is being made.
