Laptop Heat & A TKR

Recently, I have been putting my laptop onto a towel and then placing it onto my lap. I remember a bit ago when one of my readers asked us if anyone else had experienced pain from their laptop. Apparently, she had been using her laptop while sitting on her sofa or bed. She noticed that there was immense pain after a while. At the time, I had not experienced that.

Well, within the last two weeks, it has happened to me. (I am 19 months post-tkr, for the records).

After about 20 minutes, I notice a pain in my tkr area. Sometimes the pain is not that intense, other times it is. My knee is very hot at times. Other times it is warm.

Either way….I’m going to find another way to use my laptop that is ergonomically correct. I wonder if those Portabooks really work?

Oh, by the way. I had written previously about my fantastic invention of a homemade laptop holder. It broke.

If you find this post interesting, kindly share….

  1. I solved this problem when my friend suggested a wireless keyboard and mouse. Presto! Light and easy to use and move; it’s the ticket.
