I was told after my total knee replacement surgery that my knee would be swollen for about 3-4 months. So, it is swollen, but less than others I have seen. It’s not a pretty picture, but who cares? That’s part of the deal, so I’m not complaining.
I actually like showing people my scar since it’s a trophy of sorts. 🙂 Just add it to the collection, I say.
Today is an eye opener. I walked for about two hours today at the zoo. (What a great time!) Now that I am home, my knee is swollen in areas it didn’t use to be. Oh well, that’s what ice bags are for.
I’ve been told that my surgery knee will look like my healthy knee in time. That will be interesting to see how it works its way out to that point. Right now, I can’t imagine that. Time will tell.
