Today was my appointment to begin shots in my “good knee”.   While I was there the PA measured the flexion in my TKR, and it’s at 130 degrees!!   The goal after surgery was to get to at least 120, so I’m doing great.   I didn’t know what type of knee I got so I asked — it’s a Zimmer gender specific knee designed specifically for women.  It makes sense that most women would need a smaller, slimmer knee.   I think I’m going to have to start calling my new knee the good knee!   Here’s a link to Zimmer.
