2nd knee replacement was tough

I found out I have mild RA and bad osteo 3 years ago. All joints are bone on bone. Last year my knee gave out and I fell through a window, scalped myself and broke my neck. Got a knee replacement 5/6/2017 and recovery was great. So, great I decided to have 2nd TKR on 9/6/2017. Oh boy. I woke from surgery and the same foot as the surgery was inflamed with gout. I could not walk. Ortho put me on Colcrys, which worked, but when physical therapy got harder another attack formed. It’s been 4 weeks and I am walking slowly. Foot still inflamed and is worse than the knee. It is much harder this time. Maybe I should’ve waited but it’s too late now.
