activities after knee fusion : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I will have to undergo a knee fusion [ arthrodesis ] in the next few weks. I would like to know when I can expect to, if I can, go back to functionly normally, or close as possible, aftet the operation. Stuff like; sex, walking, standing, dressing, going to bathroom, showering, etc. I allready have had two [2] TKR'S on the right leg, 6 misc. operations, on the same leg, and now I am facing this. I would like to know if anyone out there has undergone the same or similar, and how you have coped with thge situation. I am getting very, very tired of all the op's. I just don't know what to expect after the surgery, and I would like to. I would appreciate any information anyone can give me. Thank you very much in advance!
