After knee replacement is it possible to walk or be active in the same way?

In brief: Usually

The reason to have a tka is due to pain and loss of normal activities.
Most pts are able to walk without any limitations. The amount of flexion postop is usually less than a non-arthritic knee, most activities (except for actually jogging) such as golf and tennis are allowed.
