Sit on mower

Posted , 7 users are following.

hi all,

im not ready yet at 7 weeks, the bumpy road in the car is bad enough, but as a hands on lady I am so missing getting on my sit on mower.

my knee hurt after travelling in the car and I felt every bump in the road.

will the vibration of my mower do any damage in another month, hoping at 12 weeks I might dare to sit on for 15 minutes at a time.

thats if I don't fall asleep as well!

what are you all like with jolts and bumpy roads etc, is it something we should avoid?

    Hi Susan,  I am three weeks for second knee, 11 weeks for first.  I have been ok in the car from the first week, maybe I haven't been over too many bumps.  I drove at 7 weeks with first knee, no problem, but the car is automatic. Mind you, that was my right knee.  I am going to try driving today as I won't be using my left knee for much.  You are amazing driving a tractor at all, let alone so soon after major surgery.  Good luck win your recovery and hope you are back on the tractor soon.

    I am 10 week post op, the bumps dont bother me any longer but its only after reading this post that I have realised  that its over ! we have very bumpy roads around here somaybe the constant exposure to the bumps hurried it along, the sit in mower sounds fab but I cannot imagine how you will get on it, do you have to lift your leg over ?
