While you may experience some discomfort after a total knee replacement, the pain is typically managed effectively with medications. As healing progresses, pain and discomfort should gradually decrease, often resulting in less pain than before surgery. Everyone’s experience varies, and the goal is always to enhance your mobility and quality of life.
While individual experiences may vary, on average, a knee replacement can last between 15 to 20 years. Factors such as the patient’s overall health, weight, activity level, and the surgical technique used can impact the lifespan of the replacement.
Hospital stays after knee replacement surgery typically range from 1 to 3 days, depending on your overall health and the specifics of your surgery. Some patients may even qualify for same-day discharge with a comprehensive plan for home care and physical therapy.
The recovery period can vary greatly depending on the type of surgery and your overall health. Mr Gong will provide an estimated recovery timeline during your consultation.
