me and my knee

It’s been 15 days since surgery. Damn it’s been a journey. Getting PT at home. I feel like I’ll never walk again but others say when I do the pain will be worth it. Need encouragement please.
looks like we may have had the surgery about the same time. mine was on 1/8/18. Some days are better than others. Went to PT yesterday, worked hard, did great. Today my leg feels like it weighs 100 lbs.! Taking it easy today. Sleeping at night is hardest for me because I just can’t get comfortable trying to sleep on my back. I have always slept laying on my side so getting a good nights sleep isn’t possible. Guess we both need to relax and let things heal. I’m sure better days are ahead.
Total right knee replacement 4 months ago. Looking back I realize this was a lot tougher surgery recovery than I thought it would be. A lot of sleepless painful nights but it's over. Still some pain but I am walking big dogs and after limping for two years I am a new guy. Totally worth it but glad the worst is over.
it’s been 5 months. I have a great PT but still have a ways to go. dealing with pain and swelling. knee still has not fully recovered. it’s a journey. Hoping for the better. still trying to get the leg straight.
