Bilateral knee replacement
Hi I'm new to the group but would like some advice please, I had both my knees replaced on the 3rd March and am still in a lot of pain and stiffness, I go physio once a week and the bending is good but the straightening isn't so good, is this normal and what can I do to make it better and easier.
@sandrine You are brave having both done together! the only advice I can give it to ensure you ttake good pain medication, keep the joints moving as much as you can without pushing too hard, rest, and do the exercises. It's a long job, and with two to cope with, it must be very difficult. I can't imagine how you even begin to cope with stairs! Keep insisting with the straightening. I didn't to begin with and my physio kept saying that once the swelling went down it would be straight. . .WRONG . . so at fourteen weeks I am still struggling to get it straight, with sgtretches and weights etc.
