WOW, you must be the twin I have never met! I will be 53 in May, my TKR was 1/18/08. Your post reads as though I wrote it! With few exceptions- I didn't go to rehab and the Coumadin dropped my blood levels so much it was stopped immediately and I had to spend 3 days in bed until I had regained my strength. It is strange how you think you will never be able to lift your leg again and suddenly it's moving. I must say though I was educated by my doctor incredibly, including a class that outlined the procedure from A-Z! I like the skateboard idea,very resourceful. I remain inpatient myself, I have reached that plateau where I am ready to climb mountains-my body is just not ready to co-operate yet. I have to keep reminding myself it's only been a little over three weeks-patience much prevail!
Best of luck to you, continued success!
