I had a partial knee replacement at the start of April and things were going well. I was back to cylcling and had much less stiffness in the knee. I've now gone back to work as a kindergarten teacher in a school housed in a very old town house (lots of stairs)! I'm off work again after only 2 weeks as I'm having sudden pain in the back of my knee and that early joint stiffness has returned. I'm 47 and was hoping that the knee op would give me a new lease of life however fear that this will be it from now! I knew I wouldn't be running marathons but now fear that I won't be able to return to work! I'm wondering how long it will take before I have more confidence in my new knee or whether its just a matter of time. I'm using ice again and having physio massage but feeling worried about the future, especially as I have to have the same op on the other knee! The Dr and physio feel its over-use but what IS over-use? Any words of comfort?
