....is this all right?
I am 10 weeks post TKR and having problems knowing how much exercise to do.
I had a bad week last week and didn't do much although I did the usual stretching and bending.
I can walk upstairs fine even though I have some pain, I can walk without a crutch or stick but not far as my leg swells up. I limp but I do try and walk normally, hard to do.My bend is about 100 degrees but I cannot fully straighten my leg. Just a little way to go.
Yesterday I went to the gym and did about fifteen minutes very gentle exercising on the bike.Oh! Boy! I've really paid for that. Sore,painful and swollen afterwards,more stiff and sore this morning.Is this normal? Is it ' no pain, no gain'?
I want to go to the gym regularly and build up the exercises. I am going to an Aqua Exercise class this morning.
I have sat around too long and want to get moving. Is exercise the way to go?
