BK Prosthesis— Below Knee Prosthesis
Below the knee prosthesis
Simplified, low cost below-knee prosthesis.
As with each and every other person who has left a message, I too am very glad I found this blog. I am 9 weeks TRK. I was a stubborn individual and did not utilize all of the pin medications that the doctors had available to me, and if you are contemplating knee surgery, go ahead and utilize what they offer. In my case it was Tylenol 500 mgs, 2 tablets, every 4 hours as needed for pain. Like most of you in the 3rd week after surgery, I was at a total ROM of 132, but even the PT said that I was being too aggressive, and that I needed to slow down. I have the same “Lead” knee syndrome as others ahve described, and the area directly above the knee and below the knee are swollen 60% of the time. Sleep last for about 5 hours at a time, and I still feel somewhat brain drained by around 2:00 PM in the afternoon at work. I “believe” it will get better, but there are times around 2:00 AM, that the brain just is not buying my belief. I am told by a number of people that it will get better consistantly, but it will do so in a time of it’s choosing.

Manual Locking Knees (Impact Level Low)
A Manual Lock feature can be added to many knee designs and would usually be used by very low impact level individuals, who need to ambulate with no possibility of the knee bending, unless the lock is manually released.
4 Bar Knees (Impact Level Low to Moderate unless it is combined with pneumatic or hydraulic control for High)
This type of knee is designed to have more than one center of rotation throughout the bending cycle and in this way mimics the human anatomical knee joint.

My daughter stopped by today and found me crying. This is my 7th week after having TKR on my left Knee. Im just so tired of all of this. Its like one step forward and two steps back. I thought I was doing OK but cant get my leg to bend past 90 without force. I went to therapy yesterday. Spent one hour in the pool. Afterwards tried to use one of the machines and when I would draw back my knee a real sharp burning pain shot directly below my knee. Today its sore all down my leg and I can barely walk. My therapist told me if it keeps hurting I will have to call my doctor. He wasnt to happy with my progress and told me if there was no change. I might have to have manipulation. I know everyone heals differently. Im trying to keep a positive outlook. But sometimes its hard. My husband told me to stop reading stuff on the internet. But only people that has had this surgery , understands. I just keep praying for a miracle and I am going to wake up one morning and this will all be in the past.
