MichaelR, good to see you back. Glad to hear you're improving, and I'll be praying your other knee will do well also. πŸ™πŸŒΌ

FlappysLady81 Do you use a stylus when filling out your pain charts? I have Ham hands and it's very difficult for me to color the right areas. Sorry to barge in on someone else's thread :(

Anonymous1971 try zooming in. Takes two fingers or two stylus points. Touch the screen and spread fingers to zoom in. Pinch in to zoom out. I hope this helps.

MichaelR congrats on knee improvement. Good luck with your next surgery.

Anonymous1971, no I don't. I do zoom in sometimes. But mostly my fingernails are just of enough. πŸ™πŸŒΌ

So has your AVN halted? I like your spirit MichaelR. I will use your quote too if you don't mind. After rehab I will be PAIN FREE!

EquineSister,yeah my right knee is nice now.No AVN.But my left knee is getting worse and i will need the same surgery on it.3 months past since my TKR and my right knee is feeling much better than it was before surgery!Day by day my Knee is getting flexion and strength.First few weeks post op are terrifying ,but it costs it.I halfed the dosage of my pain killers!

Hoping the left leg will catch up with the right. I had AVN beginning in my talus last year but it is gone now after 2nd surgery. Hoping for a full recovery for you. All the best.

MichaelR, so good to see you back and that you have had improvement since your knee surgery. I hope and pray that it continues and that after you have the other knee replacement you truly are pain free. Sending you best wishes and prayers that life continues to improve for you.πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸ»
