    I'm impressed with a whole hour's exercises Lou!  I am just under 4 weeks and manage half an hour's at a go (three times a day) but that exhausts me!

    I don't have access to 'advanced physio' but the physio did put me through my paces and left me with some taxing exercises.   Anyway, well done you!

    well done im struggling to understand yer system can you explain what is advanced physio class?       we go to physio its just a big room with about 6 beds and a bike and a few bits and pieces physio checks range and gives us excersises to do and she comes back every so often to check progress as she has others with maybe hip ops or shoulder or other knee ops so not just tkrs  yours sounds more structured

      Hi linda 

      yes here on the wirral,we have classes just for people who have their knee done and a separate class for hips,usually at 4 weeks you start in the standard class of physio which is the basic class and you stay there for 3 weeks,then go on to the advanced class,which i went straight into...we are so lucky here to have good physio at the hospital for as long as its needed..like yours its a big room with exercise bikes,treadmills,exercise balls for sitting on to improve the bend,and all sorts of other torture implements lol xx
