Had TKR 2 years and 3 months ago. Gym member. I know swimming is good,plus walking in the water. Also stationary bike. How about the cross trainer? Rowing machne? Are these detrimental? I need to exercise to keep my weight down. Any further tips please?

    I am 5 months post TKR and I use all of them, physio said it was ok so I don’t see why not!  I can only presume that as long as you’re going straight aligned it will be ok.

    About anything except exercises that put a lot of torque or rotation. Basically that can put undo wear and tear.
