activities after,knee fusion. { arthrodesis } : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I will have to undergo a knee fusion in the next few weeks. I would like to know when I can expect to, if i can, go back to functioning normally, or close as possible, after the operation. Stuff like; sex, walking, standing etc. I allready had 2 tkr's on the right leg, 6 misc. operations on the same leg, 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 the situation. I am getting very, very tired of all the op's.I just don't know what to expect after the surgery. I would appreciate ANY information anyone can give me. Thank you very much !
