It's been 6 years since I had my knees replaced and even though all the pain I use to have in my knees is gone I was deeply disappointed to discover I could no longer run.
I know it’s not recommended to run with the implants but it would have been nice to know in the event I had to run for one reason or another I could do so.
I was only 40 when I had the surgeries and my doctor knew how active I was so it never occurred to me to ask if there were different types of implants to choose from that would be more suitable with my life style.
If I try to run now I experience unbearable pain just below and above my knees. I am guessing it’s coming from the area of the bone they had to drill out for the implants. It feels just like it did when it was bone on bone
Has anyone else experienced this pain while trying to do some very light running.
What adds more salt to the wound is when I see amputees participating in iron man competitions with more than half of their leg made out of plastic and metal.
I wouldn’t have a problem going through the whole thing all over again if it meant I would be able to run now and then.
As it is right now I couldn't run if my life depended on it.
Thanks in advance,
