hi! I had my tkr 9 months ago. It did take some time to get off the meds. At times I still have to take a pain pill. It took me around 8 weeks or more before I could sleep through the night. My new replacement is doing well. It is so nice to do things that I haven't been able to do for couple years. I'm 49 years old. Good luck. Sandy
