Post Knee Replacement Surgery Experiences

I am 3 and 1/2 weeks after knee replacement surgery and I am finally beginning to feel like living again. This has been a very tough surgery. I would describe it as brutal. The pain and rehab have been worse than I expected (and I expected it to be bad).

What has really surprised me was my mother's reaction. She is 85 and is convinced that I am over reacting to the surgery. I spent Thanksgiving with her and it was a constant stream of so and so had their knee replaced and were out shopping and resuming normal activities within two weeks. My doctor and physical therapists have me on very restricted activities until 6 weeks post op. I am still dealing with swelling and have been told to limit the amount of time on my feet. I am working hard at PT and doing everything expected. I was going to scream if I heard one more story about someone she knew shopping at Costco or shopping Black Friday soon after their replacement.

Sorry for the vent. I just needed to get that off my chest.
