I'm due to have my right knee resurfaced in 6 weeks time. From what I understand this is pretty much the same as a replacement except I will keep my ligaments and it is often used on younger people as they can be more active afterwards.
?I've been reading up on recovery times and am getting quite confused. When my husband has his knee replaced a few years ago he was repeatedly told to exercise it every day after the op, even if there was pain, or otherwise scar tissue would set in and he would be unable to ever bend it properly again. He followed this advice and has had a very successful outcome.
?However I am now reading that you should not exercise through pain but stop and rest, elevate and ice the leg. Not sure which way to go as I obviously want a successful outcome too.
?Does anyone have recent experience of successful recovery from knee replacement/resurfacing?
