Don’t you think we “kneed” a comparison now? Yes, lol, between my two knees. It’s been almost six months and I thought I’d take a picture of both knees side by side. Obviously the right knee is the ‘TKR’ knee. It’s still a bit swollen which is normal according to my surgeon and the scar is in the midst of trying to fade. It feels pretty good, not much bumpiness at all.
What’s really interesting, at least to me, is that you can see how my right knee cap is much more straight than the left knee cap. The left knee cap lists off to the left…see?? Prior to surgery, my right kneecap was the same. What’s even more interesting to me is that they actually reuse your existing knee cap and put something underneath it as part of the replacement! Cool eh?
Perhaps at one year, I’ll post another picture taken in the same spot so we can see how much it has improved.
I just took a break for an early lunch…now back to my errands. Have a wonderful day!
