Well today felt fairly momentous. I drove for the first time. Didn't go too far and it was fine. I had no idea how knee replacement would affect me in so many ways. It feels like a huge journey and it's only been seven weeks so far. I foolishly thought that I would go in, have the op, come out do a few exercises and get over the op and be back to 'normal'. I'm walking well, no real sign of limp but I'm walking so slowly (slow snails pace!). I think a huge amount of positive mental attitude and determination is needed to get back to living life. I don't think I will be the same person again as I know my fitness levels will improve and I will continue to make exercise a huge part of my life. I don't think I will ever take anything for granted again! And I certainly look at people with walking canes etc.in a different way - you just never know what people are going through. Who else feels this is life changing in more ways than one?
