Oh joy,  6 weeks post op and I am back cycling.   Did 4 klms today. So nice to be out in the fresh air.  Still pain but at least I feel a little more normal.

      Hi Jackie,  waited until my husband was out of range.  I had my first knee done 14 weeks ago, and the second one, nearly six weeks ago.  I felt as if I was strong enough so just gave it a go.  It was wonderful as I cycle quite a lot when my knees are good.  Probably pay for it tonight but never mind.

    Well done you! I felt good yesterday at 7wks to have cycled half a mile on my exercise bike. You put us all to shame but I keep reminding myself that we are all different.

      We are all different, and even our own knees different to each other.  It took me 7 weeks to go out on my bike with my first knee. On the other hand, I am having much more pain with the second knee....go figure.  Best wishes, when you do get on your bike.

    That's fantastic!  I'm almost six weeks and physio is happy with my bend and straight.  However, I sit on my exercise bike and rock the pedals backwards and forwards but there is no way on this earth that I could do a full rotation!!

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Soeoz,

    Just wanted to thank you for motivating me to get on my bike for the first time since my bilateral TKR's 16 weeks ago. I was very scared to try, but I loved it and rode 6 miles. It felt really good! I'm amazed at how early you did it. Thanks again for the motivation!
