Re: After TKR, is walking "fluid" again?

It is "fluid" for me. I had RTKR in Oct 2010. I had trouble walking 6 blocks before surgery and now routinely walk 18 holes of golf & 40+ blocks when we go to Manhattan. I was 55 when I had the surgery done so a little younger than the typical patient so that might be a factor. I have played more gold this summer than I have in 20 years. It feels "tender" if I walk a very hilly course but that feeling goes away after 1 night of rest.

Do all the exercise as prescribed that is key for fast/good recovery,
Good luck !
Glenn
