Good News after knee replacement

Posted , 7 users are following.

I had a full replacement on my left knee 6 months ago and think that the results are well worth the initial pain.  I used to be in pain all the time and was walking around like Groucho Marx.  I can now walk for a couple of miles comfortably and my legs perfectly straight. I've joined the gym and got a personal trainer. We're working on building up the muscles in my leg, which had become very wasted.  I've had a new lease of life.

    Thank you for sharing with us your good news. It means that one day I will feel like you.  I already noticed big improvement, I can walk more and without pain. Unfortunately I need TKR on my left knee, which is painfull to walk on.  I am nearly 14 weeks after operation. Unfortunately I tore a quad muscle, so i have

     to take my exercises easy.  Keep in touch with us.

    I was fortunate to only need the one knee replacement.  I do think that having the personal trainer has been beneficial. I was finding it hard to cycle but having someone there that encourages, not bullies though, has pushed me into making an effort.
