I had my 1st TKR in 2014 and after 3 spinal fusions, I discovered no pain was worse than the TKR. I recovered and resumed life after 12 weeks. In May, 2017 I tore my meniscus in my other knee and went through all the channels and had repair surgery in July. Unfortunately, my knee was much worse than the MRI showed and I ended up having a TKR In September. I knew how horrid the pain would be along with the recovery and PT. I remembered being depressed and crying a lot the last time. I'm now 8 weeks post-op and very depressed and cry all the time. I have been stuck inside mostly now for going on 6 months, and realize I seem to be okay when I'm out for PT, Doctor visits, Etc. I also have severe sciatic nerve pain from my scoliosis which adds to the total picture. I've lost interest in most everything. I live 1,300 miles away from family and am dreading the holidays. I'm wondering if anyone here has felt so depressed and hopeless after 8 weeks (along with the 4 months prior to the TKR). Thanks in advance!
