Perhaps cycling? Great exercise that’s easy on the knees.
@Loin Lover ,
That's great news, and congrats. HNNND!
Be vigilant with your rehab, don't falter. Keep moving forward, literally.
I know what I'm talking about. If I may...
In 2013, I had bi-lateral (both) total knee replacements, and I had them replaced at the same time. The surgery also consisted of removal of a tibia rod I had for a prior leg break. Anyway, I was out of the hospital within 30 hours of surgery, then started rehab the following day. After four months, I was back at work full duty walking over 10 miles a day. I have not had any issue since finishing rehab, and resuming my normal life and duties.
The knee replacements was the second best thing I've ever done for myself, the first being the left total hip replacement I had in 2011. And yes, I had my right hip replaced (total) in 2015. The 2015 hip replacement was a trip; it was OUT PATIENT! Checked in at 6 a.m., and was back home by 5 p.m....
Anyway, after each upgrade, I was always able to return to my life and work duties unrestricted. I simply had great doctors and nurses, outstanding PTs along with a strong work ethic of getting better.
You'll do fine. If you have any questions about your situation, or would just like to chat about replacements; feel free to PM me anytime.
Stay strong, get stronger.
I had a knee replacement a little over two years ago, and after all of the recovery and therapy was done my surgeon said, "Try not to run too much."
I've put a lot of run-a-minute/walk-a-minute miles on it, and it feels fantastic. Manage the pain, work the hell out of the muscles in therapy, and enjoy.
Good Luck , hopefully you'll be pain free soon!
Got in here late - glad everything's going good !
I missed this too! I hope all is well and that you are healing nicely.
Good luck. You’ll get through this and before you know it you’ll be wishing you did it years ago. Stay as active as the docs say. My wife had a hip replaced and she was back on the tennis courts within 6-8 months. Quicker than me with torn cartilage in my ankle (going on a year of rehab on/off).
Do all the PT and it will pay off.
Hang in there, hoss! I think you're going into things with a GREAT attitude, and I think that helps more than we know sometimes... Me and lil man will say some prayers for ya... Keep us posted, and I hope this new knee makes ya feel like a new man...
Not just sending good vibes, sending Classic vibes.
You got this, bro!
Glad you are on the mend! Stick with the regimen and you'll have an awesome outcome. I know some folks who've had knees replaced and now play volleyball and live very active lives. All the best for a full recovery!
My vibes are nice smooth and soothing, I don’t to vibrate you too much, cheers
Sending prayers and good vibes!! Sorry I'm late to the party but vibes coming anyway!!
Congratulations on your new knee. That's great. I'm glad to hear you're getting through this okay. Keep it going brother. Just work through the pain and you'll be fine.
Glad to hear it's going well. Sounds as though it's well worth it. Good luck with your new knee.
Sending all my positive vibes your way!
