I don't know what you do for work but don't let anybody try to tell you you should be back to normal. 9 weeks is nothing. This is a long recovery but will be glad you did it. At least I am.I am at 9 weeks out of total knee replacement for my left knee. I need the right done, but will put it off as long as possible, because of the recovery time.
I am very happy for the most part on how everything is going. Today I feel like I am having a bad day as my knee is aching and feels swollen. But this is the end of my work week.
The problem I have, is because of my age everyone in my family, and at work expect me to be back to normal at 9 weeks. But I don't feel like I am. I feel like I am doing great, but still have a way to go. I don't feel like being made to feel like I am being a baby about it.
Reading these comments help me feel better about this.
